As people come west on Lake Avenue toward the Main Beach, there is a stop sign.
From there, drivers can see the city’s namesake–Crystal Lake.
The Park District is in the process of putting in new playground equipment and, I believe, one of those kid attractions where water squirts up and often surprises children.
Too bad that the Leathers’ playground had outlived its usefulness.
My son loved to walk on the swinging bridge.
But, no big deal, since that attraction was put so it would not block a drivers’s view of the lake.
Recently, however, a pole has appeared.
Visual pollution of the lake view, I’d say.
I hope that it will be removed so that the view can be restored to its more pristine condition.
