Marynook is a little neighborhood on the far south side of Chicago within the Avalon Park Community. Marynook is a primarily residential neighborhood with businesses clustered along East 87th Street and South Stony Island Avenue which also border Marynook on the south and east. Right on South Stony Island Avenue, within the borders of Marynook, the Pet Salon can have your dog looking great in no time right on your neighborhood walk. If you would like another option, the Dogs Only Grooming Salon is only a little bit north. Training is also available via a dog training center on the coast a little further north. There is also Avalon Park in the northwest corner which is a great place to walk with your dog in a more natural setting and enjoy the grassy areas. On the coast, Jackson Bark is a great place for your dog to play off-leash with their friends safely.

Marynook is a lovely neighborhood to walk through with your dog on a loose leash. Homes are closely spaced but they are set back behind little grassy yards that are rarely fenced. Homes have unique architectural design and attractive landscaping while intermittent mature trees provide pleasant shade on hot Chicago days. Within the park area, there is a small separate community  with two or three story townhomes. If you have access to this gated community, it is a lovely place to walk your dog on a loose leash as there is very little traffic and the terrain is mostly flat.

Avalon Park is a great place to walk on the pleasant trails under mature tree cover or enjoy an on-leash game of fetch. If you want to explore more wilderness than the city park, Van Vlissingen Prairie is a short car trip south and offers a wide variety of terrain including forest, grassland, and ponds.

Avalon Park is a large regional park within Marynook that has tree-lined paths and large grassy areas to explore with your dog. If you are willing to travel for more exploration, you can head south to the Van Vlissingen Prairie. Forested areas are great to hike through and the open grassy areas of the prairie let your pup follow their nose through the open country. Several bogs in this park also are a wonderful place to catch a glimpse of wildlife.


If you follow the prairie south, you will find the Railroad Marsh which has a nice path through marshy terrain. South of this area is Marsh Park and The Harborside Marsh Pond. All of these areas offer your dog a unique opportunity to test their footing in marshy terrain. Lake Calumet is a gorgeous area to explore as well, especially the West Shore and Gull Island where you are guaranteed to see exciting bird life.
