I grew up with a Collie named Elsa and in the many years since have become close friends with Maggie, Phoebe, Molly, Mazie, Max, Lacy, Clover and other dogs who have lived in the families of my friends. I love to walk (being very much like a dog in that respect) and I love spending time with dogs. I look forward to going on some great walks with your best friend.

Dog Walking in Chicago Heights
Located approximately thirty miles north of the great city of Chicago is one of the most peaceful, beautiful neighborhoods of the Chicagoland area: Chicago Heights. Since Chicago Heights is mainly a residential area, you won't find any Chicago tourists. Instead, you will find yourself surrounded by parks, shopping, and dog lovers.
Like Chicago, Chicago Heights is incredibly diverse, home to people from all over the world. If you love meeting new people and learning about new cultures without the hustle and bustle of a huge city, this is the place for you. You will often find people speaking in Italian and Spanish all over the city. Furthermore, the people of this city are known for largely relying on public transportation instead of their cars, separating them from the norms of other residential cities.
If you're walking around Chicago Heights and don't see any dog parks, don't despair. Although the city does not have any dog parks, it has a staggering 25 community parks where you can go with your beloved leashed pup. Since the city is such a homey, loving place, you and your furry friend are bound to make a new friend or two. This is the magic of Chicago Heights!
Best Dog Neighborhoods in Chicago Heights
If you live in the Beacon Hills neighborhood of Chicago Heights, you are extremely lucky. Right in your own backyard, you have three large connected parks. At the tip of the parks you will find Joe Orr Woods, also called Cook County Preserve. This large stretch of lush greenery has plenty of trails and open spaces for you and your pooch to run and play. The second park you must visit is Wilson Park. The south-most park is Indian Hill Woods. All parks are connected by Thorn Creek. There are plenty of activities here to keep you and your pup entertained all day!
Like many other Chicago Heights neighborhoods, Normandy Villa is a primarily residential area. The scenic beauty of the neighborhoods makes many pet owners walk their furry friends outside on the sidewalk. However, what most people fail to do is take advantage of the lush green grass of Normandy Villa school. The school has a large patch of grass with plenty of space for you to run and get some exercise while your pup gets some much needed play time. Just remember, you will not be able to access the park during school hours and you will have to keep your pup leashed at all times.
Sometimes, you have just got to get back to basics. Instead of driving to a far-off park with your pooch, consider going to the neighborhood of Olympia Gardens, where you will find a quiet, quaint little park called Swanson Park. This park is not flashy, but it has everything you and your pup need to have a wonderfurr day. Pack a picnic, grab a good book and spend a few hours basking in the sun. Just remember, this is not an off-leash park so your four legged friend will need to be leashed at all times and you will need to take doggie poop bags with you.
Are you in the mood to just get away from the hustle and bustle of a fast city life? Do you think your pup needs to be out in nature where they can stretch their legs? If this resonates with you, drive the short distance of five miles from your home in Chicago Heights to the neighborhood of Butterfield, located in Olympia Fields. Butterfield is home to Spirit Trails Park. This large park has everything you could ask for in a large park. It is home to plenty of trails, open space and fresh water. Your pup will have a pawsome day there!
Chicago Heights residents are extremely lucky because they are only fifteen miles away from a 585-acre grassland preserve. Located in Tinley Park is Bartel Grassland. To put it lightly, this grassland is gigantic! You and your furry four-legged companion could roam around for hours without running into a single soul. Furthermore, the grassland is home to plenty of wildlife, including endangered birds and crawling critters. Just make sure you take a leash, water, and doggie poop bags as the park is not responsible for providing those. And make sure you wear comfortable shoes so you can spend the day walking!
