On March 23, 2013 Mayor Rahm Emanuel attended the Windy City Hoops basketball game at Columbus Park. Windy City Hoops is a new teen basketball league at 10 parks across the city providing an additional 3,200 registration slots for at-risk youth ages 13-18 year-round.
The league operates from 7-10 pm on Fridays and 5-10 pm on Saturdays, an expansion that will double the total number of hours of teen basketball programming provided by the Chicago Park District year-round.
