Historic greystones and red-bricked beauties line the blocks of both the residential and commercial areas of Lake View. Business and noise levels of this neighborhood can vary as certain blocks are wholly residential, but you can turn a corner and find yourself in an urban center where storefronts and restaurants decorate both sides of the street. N. Clark Street, W. Belmont Avenue and N. Halstead Street are typically busier than smaller roads that cut through suburban-esque parts of Lakeview. 

Most of Chicago is pedestrian-friendly, with crosswalks and sidewalks abound. Lake View is no exception to this, so walking around the region with your dog is safe and simple. Sidewalks in commercial areas tend to be wider, allowing for plenty of space so you shouldn't have to worry about encroaching with an excitable or curious dog.. 

If you aren't interested in, or grow tired of urban hiking, you can take Fido to any number of parks and public spaces Lake View and surrounding neighborhoods have to offer.

More of a recreation center than a park, Gill Park is mainly utilized for its after-school and summer programs for kids, as well as its indoor pool and fitness center. Offering everything from painting and yoga to water sports and basketball, Gill Park is a Renaissance Man's paradise. There's a small area outside of the building where dogs can relieve themselves, as long as their picked up after and a playground site for children and young-at-heart adults. 

 Like Gill Park, Hamlin Park features a recreation facility which hosts a number of events and classes. Outside of the facility, there are 8 acres of sports fields, an outdoor pool, and a playground. Dog-owners will delight in the fact that there's also a designated space for their furry loved-ones. While humble in size, the off-leash area for doggos is the ideal space to let them run and play free from restraint.

Lake View has plenty of other dog-friendly spaces including the Challenger Dog-Friendly Area, Montrose Dog Beach, Puptown Dog Park, and the Clarendon Dog-Friendly Area.
