New group to be formed for Cornell Park

Fifth Ward Ald. Leslie Hairston is accepting volunteers for the first formal Cornell Park Advisory Council.

Cornell Park, 5473 S. Cornell Ave., has never had an official advisory council. It hopes to be ready in time for spring planting.

Youth volunteers are strongly encouraged, as well as anybody interested in gardening or installing playground equipment.

Volunteers should call the Fifth Ward Office at 773-324-5555.
