Thank you to all who voted in the first and second rounds of our Parks Tournament, where we are asking you, dear readers, to determine which Champaign-Urbana park will reign supreme. We’ve compiled the results from our Google Form, Twitter polls, and Instagram polls, and we are ready to present the Elite Eight.

The second round was pretty straightforward, and you’ll see that all four top seeds on each side remain. It’s clear that you like what you like, and that might mean a Hessel vs Meadowbrook final.

Voting for this round will continue through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29th. You can vote through the form below, on our Twitter feed, or Instagram stories. Questions? Comments? Email us at [email protected].

Thank you for your continued participation!
