The fence has been removed from the new Welles Park NaturePlace. The space is still a work in progress with new elements to be added in the coming months.
While we complete the space and anxiously await the growth of the plants planted last fall, please be careful to respect the space. We ask that everyone stays off the planted areas (mats of straw on the ground seen in the picture below) and remain on the trails or mulched areas. Also, dogs are never allowed in Chicago Park District natural areas.
We want to thank our community for its support in creating and maintaining this unique new space!
