Bucktown’s Holstein Park (2200 N. Oakley- map it) is turning 100 years old, and since parks can’t throw themselves their own party, the volunteer group Friends of Holstein Park has stepped in to make this Saturday, June 30th a memorable day.
The festivities will be held on the park grounds adjacent to the historic field house as well as the surrounding streets. There will be many activities for the younger park fans in a dedicated children’s play space.
The entire event is a fundraiser for the ambitious rehabilitation plan of the historic Holstein Park field house that is celebrating 100 years of continuous service to the community. There’s a $5 suggested donation for entry to the celebration.
