GLENVIEW – The Glenview Park District invites you to move to the beat this summer. Enjoy the warm weather and dance the night away with the district’s three free concert series: Bearfoot in the Park, Little Bearfoot Children’s Concerts and Friday Night Live.
Every Wednesday from 7-8:30 p.m., head downtown with blankets, food and the kids for some mid-week fun at Jackman Park Gazebo, 1930 Prairie Street. Thanks to our park partner Glenview State Bank, the park district will again be giving away bubbles to Bearfoot in the Park concert goers because it was such a hit last year. In case of inclement weather, concerts may be moved to Park Center, 2400 Chestnut Ave. Please remember alcohol is not permitted on park grounds.
Hundreds attend each week. Many are from Glenview, but others are from places along the train route. With the Metra station in Glenview across the street from Jackman Park, people find it easy to get here.
