On Tuesday, October 25, a very unique swing set will be unveiled at the corner of Auburn and Hoyt on the city’s West Side. The swing set is being assembled in a circle, which promotes social engagement. Individuals and groups will be encouraged to swing next to, and across from one another. The exercise intends to bring a diverse community together, to laugh, and talk to one another while enjoying one of the simplest pastimes on the planet – swinging!
The swing set is called Full Circle for obvious reasons. It is located near a high school with 70 countries represented and 44 languages spoken. This is a brilliant neighborhood exercise that will surely draw people of all age ranges from other neighborhoods.
Full Circle is considered part playground equipment and part sculpture. The unveiling will second as a celebration of this vibrant West Side community that continues to press forward. The event will include a DJ, Zumba, Taste of Puerto Rico food truck, and garden viewing. Bring the family, and try out this ingenious swing set. You never know… you might end up meeting a new neighbor along the way.
