A group of community residents "Friends of Eugene Field Playlot" are in partnership with "Parkways Foundation" and are working together to raise funds to renovate the playlot at Eugene Field. Their goal is to create a playlot that is safe, clean, attractive and accessible to all children.

Putting together the plan to renovate Eugene Field 1st step is to raise enough funds to fully renovate the playlot with new updated equipment. Thanks to the 39th Ward Alderman Margaret Laurino a check was presented for $100,000.00 to the Friends of Eugene Field Playlot and their supporters. The donation from Alderman Margaret Laurino brings the organization closer to reaching their goal of raising $250,000.00, the organization hopes to raise the remaining funds through neighborhood fundraiser's in addition with corporate and governmental support.
