Over in Douglass Park, a group of teens have revived a once dead mini golf course. Calling themselves the Douglass 18 Team, 40 young people from North Lawndale and surrounding neighborhoods got together to help rebuild a 18-hole course, which had been closed for so long that most of them never had the opportunity to play there.
The theme of the renewed course is wildlife conservation, specifically the 200 birds that migrate to Douglass Park each year, with the obstacles and the course's decoration relating to birds' appearance, diet, habitat, and behavior. The Douglass 18 team even worked with the Lincoln Park Zoo to design the course as an attraction that would benefit the residents while bringing attention to the birds that live in the park. All the young people participating in Douglas 18 are paid, and the mini golf course will be operated by local youth.
