When you name a park after someone, you would think their life's passion would be the central theme of the park. We thought Fred Anderson was known for Jazz and his legendary Velvet Lounge at 67 East Cermak.
A reader recently sent us a link to a post on the website of the South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative about the final design for the Fred Anderson Park. Naturally, they primarily look at the dog portion of the park. For those interested in the final plans take a look below:
Forgive us if we are out of the loop on this, but wasn't part of this park supposed to be dedicated to a patio for Acadia? We heard that it was supposed to be split 1/3 for dogs, 1/3 for jazz and 1/3 for patio for Acadia.
Apparently Acadia lost out to the dogs. At least they won a Michelin star.
