Hanson Park is a good location for a walk with your dog along idyllic streets and through the park. Weather in Chicago changes with the seasons, so it's always important to check the weather before you head out with your pooch. The spring is the wettest season for the city while fall remains cool and mild. Winter can bring heavy snowfall while summer sees some sweltering days.
West Fullerton Avenue is the busiest road in the neighborhood with cars, pedestrians, and bikers crowding the streets. Stay cautious as you cross streets, and watch your pet at all times. The southern part of the neighborhood is bordered by train tracks and, while there aren't any streets there, it's best to avoid that area and stay away from any train traffic.
For more green space to explore, you can head east of the neighborhood to Blackhawk Park which is a popular space for sports. The park features a short walking path and areas to sit in the shade and enjoy warmer sunny days. A little farther north is Cragin Park where you'll find a playground and some green fields to run around in.
