Located in north-central Chicago, Old Town Triangle is an area in what is referred to as Old Town, and often the two district distinctions are blurred. The area gets its name from being one of the first areas to be rebuilt after the Great Fire. This neighborhood is residential, however, due to its central location, tourist attractions, and thriving arts and theatre scenes, there are many nightclubs, theatres, clubs, museums, restaurants, and hotels present in the neighborhood. These areas are walkable and the park can be reached on foot by area residents. 

The weather in Chicago can be severe with spring thunderstorms, winter blizzards, and hot, humid summers, however, the lake moderates temperatures for pedestrians in Old Town Triangle, making temperatures a few degrees cooler in summer and warmer in the winter. Check the forecast before venturing out with your dog for a walk, and adjust plans if severe weather is imminent.

This fascinating area has high rises and residential and commercial buildings along the eastern border near Lincoln Park. The residential area, complete with apartments, single-family homes, and townhouses is very heavy tread and vegetated, obscuring sight lines to many homes. The region is flat, and streets are narrow, reflecting the era in which this community was developed but not presenting any ground where hiking is an ideal activity. Residential roads are relatively quiet, although there can be traffic from sightseers taking in the sighs and narrow streets are lined with vehicles in this densely populated district. There are commercial areas with many service oriented establishments along main streets and near the park with heavier traffic and activity.  Keep your dog leashed and close to your side while walking as vehicles on narrow, crowded streets and accessing restaurants, bars, and hotels may not be the safest for people and pets on foot.

Lincoln Park sits adjacent to Old Town Triangle on the neighborhood's east side between the commercial and residential area and the Lake Michigan shorefront. This park is part of a Chicago initiative to preserve the natural areas and parkland which has resulted in 1200 acres of greenways and green space being available to Chicago residents for recreational use. This initiative includes the 18-mile Chicago Lakefront Trail that runs through Lincoln Park and provides pet owners in the area with a magnificent greenway. Lincoln Park features many historic monuments, a famous zoo, a rowing canal, museums, beaches, and sports facilities. Walking trails weave throughout the park and its features, providing canines and their people with plenty to explore and watch in this busy park. Several other parks are located in and around Old Town Triangle and include Eugenie Triangle Park, Hudson Chess Park, Old Town Triangle Park, Ella Jenkins Park, and Sedgwick Park.
