The Brook Park School community turned out in force on Aug. 14 to officially christen the new playground, which is the result of a two-year fundraising effort by the Brook Park Council and Brookfield-LaGrange Park School District 95. Parents and the district administration partnered to fund the roughly $258,000 playground, which features a poured-in-place synthetic rubber play surface and separate play areas for kids 2-5 and 6-12.

School is going to start all too soon. Remember how easy it was? What we needed was No. 2 pencils, a pink pearl eraser (how many of you chewed on them or ate them?), a box of Crayola crayons, a folder (can't I please have a Trapper Keeper?), a ruler, lined paper (wide-rule or college-rule depending on the grade) and we were good to go. Today it goes way beyond that -- can you say Chromebook?

North Riverside may earn the distinction of being the circus capital of the western suburbs if 2019 is any sign of the future. In April, a traveling circus set up its big top in the east parking lot of the North Riverside Park Mall and staged performances for a month.
