Chicago’s Top Ten Dog Parks

Posted on Categories Blog

Want to take your dog to a Chicago dog park? Dog’s love to meet other dogs and have a place to run around. The Chicago Park District likes to call dog parks “dog friendly areas.” But, if your dog is like mine, she won’t know the difference. Make plans now to enjoy these city-sanctioned dog spots. The owner or other responsible person bringing any dog into a dog friendly area must have a permit and tag issued by a participating Veterinarian for each dog. Please be responsible when using these areas by following the policies and procedures for Chicago Park District Dog Friendly Areas.

We hope your dog enjoys running, playing and socializing with other dogs in a Chicago Park District dog friendly area.
Remember to be safe, obey the rules, and respect the park and others.
