Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance Awarded 2017 Friends of The Park
'Community Group VIP Award'

  

The Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance has been awarded a Friends of the Parks '2016 Community Group VIP Award' in service
to the area parks including the Chicago Women's Park and Gardens Advisory Council.

It all started somewhere. Beginning in 2006, seeking to rescue the building at 18th & Indiana from becoming a night club,
The Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance (PDNA) spearheaded a community effort to keep the the building as a community asset,
and to establish it as a the first South Loop Park District field house.

The PDNA then turned its efforts to ensure it became the best community asset in the South Loop, by supporting Women's Park Advisory
Council activities, fundraising, outreach, and creation of many park & community events for the last 9 years.

This award is a culmination of many hours & volunteers from many in the community, the PDNA volunteers, 
Chicago Women's Park and Gardens Advisory Council members, South Loop Parent Committee at Women's Park, Chicago Park District,
former Alderman Bob Fioretti and staff, and with continued support from current Alderman Pat Dowell, organizational support from Friends of the Parks,
with partnership from Park District Area Manager Jacqualynn Payne, Center Director Sarah Unz, her team.

Of course we can't forget the support of our old friend, Jorge Armando, owner of former Café Society who lent a helping hand.

Here is an article from the beginning in 2007 when we learned of the fate of the new proposed Field House:
