Beverly View is on the southwest side of Chicago between Ashburn and Auburn Gresham. It is bordered on the north by West 79th Street and on the west by South Webster Avenue. The east border of Beverly View is curved along the railroad and the neighborhood is carefully planned to fit within these parameters with rows of single-family homes. This is a primarily residential neighborhood with homes clustered along South Western Avenue and West 79th Street.
On the other side of the railroad, the Dan Ryan Woods offer not only extensive forested terrain for you and your dog to explore but also large grassy areas that are perfect for an on-leash game of ball or frisbee. South of Beverly View, the R Lewis Dog Training Center provides more advanced training to stretch your pup’s mind. For grooming, you will have a little more of a trip west to Beverly's Dog Grooming Salon.
Beverly View is composed of attractive homes that are set well back from the road on large lots. Lawns are grassy and well-maintained and many yards contain lovely topiaries and very well maintained landscaping. Homes are made primarily of brick and have lots of architecturally interesting detail. Plenty of tree cover makes this a shady walk on hot Chicago days.
The sidewalk is wide and there is a large divider between the sidewalk and the road, so you will be able to walk your dog on a loose leash throughout most of Beverly Hills. West 81st Street is an especially good place to bike, skateboard, or rollerblade since it is very lightly trafficked and runs uninterrupted by intersecting traffic along the railroad for miles.
For more diverse terrain, you only have to cross the railroad to find yourself at the Dan Ryan Woods. There are plenty of grassy areas as well as forest here for you to enjoy with your dog.
Beverly View is adjacent to the gorgeous Dan Ryan Woods. This engaging natural environment offers well-maintained trails through thick and old natural forest. You can follow the forested Major Taylor Trail all the way from the border of Beverly View for many miles down to the end of the Dan Ryan Woods or you can diversify your experience between open fields and forest by following the Dan Ryan Woods trails.
The Dan Ryan Woods Pavilion, as well as several other sheltered areas, give you somewhere to escape to in case of inclement weather. You can stick to the well-maintained trails or hike through the forest, giving you the kind of walk you want and providing plenty of new and exciting experiences to stimulate your dog and get her tired and happy. If you want to explore an environment with more water, you can bike or drive northwest to Marquette Park and its lovely Marquette Lagoon.
