PARK CITY, Ill.
— A new “Bicycle To The Moon” exhibition is attracting crowds as people come to see the park where the first moon landing took place, Chicago officials said Tuesday.
The “Moonwalk” show will run at the Chicago Park District for two weeks beginning Feb. 21.
It will feature a new exhibition called “Bikes to the Stars,” which will showcase the first lunar landings, the park district said.
Park officials said the show is the culmination of several years of work on the project, including community engagement, planning and fundraising.
“We’re delighted to be a part of a new era of this beautiful park and hope the show will bring people together,” Park District CEO Chris Lippert said in a statement.
For years, Park District volunteers have been working to create a space where people can enjoy the show, including using the pavilion at the Park District’s Chicago Museum of Science, Lipp, who was not at the meeting, said.
The new exhibit, Litt said, will include photos of people biking through the park, some of them riding bikes, and other photos of other people riding bikes.
It’s important to show people the park’s history and bring people into the process, he said.
The show will include a museum tour and interactive activities.
Bikes and other recreational vehicles will be permitted to ride in the park on Saturdays and Sundays.
In the last few years, the Chicago Parks and Recreation Department has added a bicycle park and bicycle infrastructure along the south shore of Lake Michigan, which serves as a popular destination for tourists and the community.
