Thank you to all who voted in the first round 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 Sweet Sixteen.

There were a few upsets, not quite as many (and certainly none as dramatic) as in that other tournament.

So, it’s time to vote again! Will there ultimately be a Hessel/Meadowbrook showdown? Or will another park become a fan favorite? The power in is your hands.

Voting for this round will continue through 5 p.m. on Friday, March 24th. 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!
