“After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, which Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cubs owner Tom Ricketts attended, families sat on the grass and the benches surrounding the park as children bounced a basketball and played with other kids. A live band entertained attendees with songs such as, “Go Cubs, Go” and set the scene before tonight’s game.
Natalie believes The Park, which is scheduled to host movies and farmer’s markets over the summer, is a great family-oriented addition to the neighborhood and to the “Cubs game experience.”
“Once you’ve come here, you’ll never get a different experience at a different ballpark,” Natalie said. “The atmosphere tonight is going to be just like how it was on one of the World Series games.”
