The Golf Carts and RVs have already invaded the space north of the park.

According to Jackie Guthrie of the Chicago Park District:

The dog area, tennis courts and skate park will not be available during Lollapalooza. This area will open up after Lollapalooza is completed. From my understanding, Friday, August 5 – Sunday, August 7th during Lollapalooza.
