CHICAGO — The Chicago Park District plans to enter the market as soon as Thursday with $162 million of general obligation bonds after being stung with double-notch downgrades from two rating agencies over its deteriorating pension fund and city relationship.

The sale includes two limited tax GO series and two unlimited tax GO series, including one that also carries an alternate revenue pledge of harbor facilities revenues. Park District officials did not return calls to discuss the deal or the recent downgrades.
