Sheridan Park is a small neighborhood on the northeast side of Chicago. This primarily residential neighborhood is a historic area full of unique architecture. In the 1980s, it was established as a historic district to protect the unique architecture of the neighborhood. Many of these homes are from the early 1900s and walking among them is very pleasant.
This neighborhood is bordered by two cemeteries and is only a few blocks from the lovely natural area along the coast. The Pensacola Dog Run is only several blocks from the southeast corner of Sheridan Park and provides a pleasant tree-covered area where your dog can run off-leash with her friends. Farther towards the coast, miles of parkland provide unlimited exploration for you and your dog and the Clarendon Dog-Friendly Area offers another great place to let your dog run off-leash. This space has sand, concrete, and grass for a diverse off-leash experience for your dog.
Most of the homes in Sheridan Park are large houses with beautiful architecture. Homes and apartment buildings are set well back off the sidewalk behind wide grassy lawns. Yards tend to be fenced, but there is a good divider between sidewalk and road and many streets have planted dividers between traffic as well, so you will generally feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash.
While the interesting architecture and lovely tree cover make this a pleasant walk, if you are looking for something different, there are lots of great places to explore near Sheridan Park. The perimeters of both cemeteries provide a pleasant sidewalk on the outside where you can be on wheels with your pup without worrying about intersecting traffic. Extended park near the coast provides places to walk your dog on a loose leash and enjoy open green spaces as well as get your dog accustomed to water at Montrose Beach.
Sheridan Park is near enough for a long walk or an average bike ride to the lovely natural area around the Montrose Beach and coastline. The Pensacola Dog Run is on the way to the coast in case your dog needs a chance to run around off-leash with their friends on the way. Once you get to the coast, the Clarendon Dog-Friendly Area provides another great place to let your dog have fun off-leash. There are miles of trails interspersed with trees for you and your dog to enjoy, as well as a path along the coast where you can enjoy the cool breeze coming off of the coast.
The Montrose Dog Beach is a large area where your dog can get to experience the water. This is the perfect place for your dog to play off-leash with their friends in the sand and water. Your dog can wear themselves out while you are relaxing in the sand.
