Chicago is ready for spring. It was a long winter for parents with children raring to get outside. While the flowers may have been hibernating, the green scene has not. This spring brings the best of the old and some exciting new hot spots. The Green Mama's Five Favorites include places that are specifically family friendly and where green-in both the health sense and the eco sense-are prioritized.
