Continuation of Slides and Graphics from Grant Park North Presentation on May 24, 2010
These next two pictures were not included in the May 24, 2010 presentation at the Spertus. However, the concept was introduced at one of the break-out sessions. Thousands of persons in Chicago have gotten inspiration and very practical advice from plaques in the Cancer Survivors Garden donated by the Richard and Annette Bloch Foundation. Hundreds of others have been married in the beautiful garden, and return each anniversary to share and relive the memory of their marriage. Others just appreciate the quite peacefulness of the beautiful gardens, and purchased their homes in the vicinity of the very popular gardens. Each of those persons would be saddened to see that special place threatened by a tourist pathway cutting through the garden, that has been "mentioned" between Millennium Park, the Lakefront, and Navy Pier.
An alternative route for a newly constructed pathway or bridge that would be an extension of the well-traveled Randolph sidewalk, that currently abruptly ends adjacent to the Cancer Survivors Garden. The new pathway for bikes and pedestrians would turn slightly southeast after passing the Garden, and descend with the required maximum 5% slope (1' to 20' ratio) to meet the existing pathway in Peanut Park. This engineering option would preserve the Cancer Survivors Garden for the future generations of enjoyment and memories.
