Royko's Grove

Though there's no plaque or sign, the grassy spot at the end of Montrose Point, a place Dad loved, was officially named "Royko's Grove" by the city posthumously in his honor, spearheaded by his sister, my late Aunt Eleanor. Here's how the view looked on what would have been Dad's 83rd birthday, September 19, 2015.
