Obama Presidential Center could include playground, sledding

CHICAGO (AP) — Former President Barack Obama’s presidential center could include a playground, performance lawn and a sledding hill. The landscape architect designing the 20-acre site in Chicago’s Jackson Park tells The Chicago Tribune the park offers a range of options. Michael Van Valkenburgh says there also are plans for community gardens and wooded walking areas. The Obama Presidential Center will include a museum and library and is expected to be complete in 2021.
