7 Parks
10 Groomers

The village of Brookfield, in Cook County, Illinois, is a lovely place to visit with your furry friend. Formerly known as Grossdale, Brookfield is set against Salt Creek and has some picturesque spots to take Fido for a stroll. 

The Oak Savannas are a little oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of suburbia, where you and your pet can get some exercise amongst impressive-looking trees. You may also see some of the local inhabitants; duck, beavers and even deer are regularly spotted here. You will need to keep pooch on leash to protect the wildlife, but it’s a must-see if you are in town.

In the northern area of Brookfield, you will find the Kiwanis Park. There is plenty of space and trails to walk around, as well as disk golf and a playground. Set along Salt Creek in another section of Brookfield’s famous Oak Savanna, it is sure to be a relaxing, fun day out for you and your pooch. There are amenities here too, such as toilets, water fountains, lots of parking and ample shade.

There is one vet in town at Brookfield, should the need arise, and the streets are nice and quiet – perfect for morning walks to take in the sights and find your feet.

    #1 Candycane Park

    In this northern neighborhood of Brookfield, you will find the Salt Creek Trail, where you and your fuzzy friend can escape suburbia and take a leisurely walk through the trees. Pups will need to stay on the lead here to protect the local flora and fauna, but the 7.1 mile section running through Candycane Park is paved and an easy, safe walk. The whole trail runs from the Brookfield Zoo to Busse Woods Forest Preserve and is an impressive 27 miles long! Make sure you wear sensible shoes and take plenty of water and clean up bags.

    #2 Madison St/ Des Plaines Ave

    The Forest Park Dog Park in the nearby town of Forest Park is a great little place to let your dog off the lead for a play. The fenced space is safe, and there is plenty of room for your pup to run and mingle with his friends. There is a water fountain, but bring a bowl to drink from and some toys to keep your dog happy. There is some seating for you, but there isn’t a lot of shade. You do need to get a permit for this area, which is available from the Village of Forest Park. If outdoor fun has got your tummy growling, head to the The Junction Diner, O’Sullivan’s public House, or the Coach House for some pawsome food with your pup.

    The Miller Meadow Off-Leash Dog Area in the nearby town of Forest Park is a great space for pet owners to let their pooch run free. Set on over three acres with two miles of trails for you both to explore, it is lucky there are sheltered seating areas for a little rest as well! You will need to first purchase an annual membership for access, but it is a worthwhile investment. Afterwards, catch at a bite to eat at one of the nearby dog-friendly restaurants, including Nonna D’s, R Place, Backyard Kitchen and Tap, and Five Guys.
