The Kid Friendly Loop

Built as a walking tour, this program will explore how Chicago’s Loop is transitioning from a 9-5 office environment populated solely by adults to a family and kid-friendly district. The program will focus on both the Loop as a place for kids to live as well as a place for kids to visit. The walking tour will conclude with lunch at Maggie Daley Park.
