HealthPark Potentially Coming to Old Skate Park in Grant Park

DNAinfo has the scoop on a new amenity coming to our neck of grant park:
The Grant Park Conservancy has shared renderings of the "health park" it wants to build at the northwest corner of 8th Street and Columbus Drive before a public presentation Wednesday night at Northerly Island Park Field House, 1521 S. Linn White Drive. 
Unlike Los Angeles' "Muscle Beach," Grant Park's health park is going for an "inclusive" setting with free fitness classes, handicap-accessible equipment and a "green, almost arboretum" setting with hills akin to Maggie Daley Park nearby, said Bob O'Neill, president of the conservancy.
Looks pretty cool to us.
