On the morning on St. Patrick's Day, the rivers run green, spreading through Chicago's city-center like emerald vines. Fulton River District is a region of Chicago known for its roots in the industry and for the water views which high rise office buildings, apartments, and condos get the best of. And while the Chicago River stretches north, it's also pulled south, leaving the Fulton River District right at the corner of this forking river bank. 

Walking around this district, you'll encounter old and new architecture, but one thing that might make this neighborhood even more unique is that you'll find buildings both old and new; old warehouses that have been converted into lofts or a structure of rentable office or studio spaces. For the forefathers of the Windy City and the ones that call it home today, possibilities are endless, a concept that's introduced to you again and again as you wander around this resourceful area.

You're likely to find plenty of construction, especially in the warmer months, which can mean sidewalk or whole street closures. It's common to find pedestrians around, whether they're walking to work, running to catch the next Green Line, or shuffling their feet beside a bus stop. 

This activity can offer great training opportunities if your pet is reactive towards strangers and even better exposure for puppies in their socialization period. Walking around Fulton River District may call for lots of reassurance for dogs lacking confidence or puppies still learning their world, so bring a bag of motivating treats to keep the walk more on the exciting side and less frightening. 

Sadly there is no walk that lines the District's eastern border where the Chicago River cuts through in its entirety, but you and your pup can follow a few short steps down off of N. Canal Street. These semi-hidden stairs lead down onto short boarded walkways.

River Point Park is within Fulton River District and offers grassy, flat space for you and your pup to walk, run, or play. Other than a well-kept lawn and sidewalks, the park offers a few trash bins and benches for your to dispose of doggie bags or sit and take a rest. 

Fulton River Park is utilized by a number of nearby apartment and condo dwellers who own dogs, big and small. Dogs must remain leashed in most of the park, but they are still welcome and are likely to meet a friend or two. If you're looking for some off-leash exercise, there is the Park 551 Dog-Friendly Area within Fulton River Park for your pet to enjoy.

Even further north is Ward A. Montgomery Park which is a local favorite for many Chicagoans as it offers river views, beautifully manicured landscaping, a playground, several sidewalks that line the river, and a dog park.
