The City unveiled renderings yesterday for the proposed Daley Bicentennial Plaza to be built on the northernmost portion of Grant Park (between Lake Shore Drive and Millennium Park). The new park will include what looks to be a chaotic combination of a climbing wall, scooter parking, a ice skating "ribbon" and who knows what else. The renderings are on view in Block 37 through next Tuesday.
