Although it's located within close proximity of Chicago, Berwyn isn't just one of the suburbs you'll pass by on your way to the Windy City. Even though the town has a well-developed transportation system, which makes it easy to travel into Chicago and the surrounding areas, you won't even have to leave town to find dog-friendly places and spaces! There are at least 8 veterinary services and clinics in Berwyn, including an animal hospital in case of emergency.

Berwyn has a couple of puptastic recreation areas for you and your dog to explore together. Maple Park, which is technically in Oak Park, Illinois, is just outside the northern border of Berwyn. Here, you'll find an off-leash area dedicated to canines. Of course, their two-legged friends are welcome as well. You'll need a permit to visit this park, which has an electronic entry system to keeps pups safe. There's plenty of room to run here, as well as benches, walking paths, shaded spots, and drinking water facilities.

Roosevelt Road is undoubtedly one of the best places in the area to visit with Fido, offering more than 10 Fido-friendly eateries. All the restaurants in this area have outdoor, dog-friendly seating. If you find yourself a little spoiled for choice, check out Buona Beef, a cool place with positive vibes and old-school Chicago classics. Or, pay a visit to Salerno’s Pizza, located right across the street from Maple Park!
