Dog Walking in Dwight

Located just 80 miles southwest of Chicago and 65 miles northeast of Bloomington, Dwight is a place full of local hospitality and several historical landmarks. One such landmark includes a railroad station designed in 1891, which was in use until 2016! 

The village doesn't boast any pet-friendly facilities, apart from one park (Renfrew Park) in the town center, where leashed pups are welcome to stroll with their masters. Don't fret when it comes to vet care, though -- Dwight may be small, but it certainly has room for a veterinary clinic. You'll find more options for specialty and emergency care in the surrounding areas.

Godley Park District, just north of Dwight, is a wonderful spot with picnic areas and seasonal events that welcomes you and your leashed dog to find a retreat in the shade. Join the tourists on a guided trip around the area, or pay a visit to friendly deer and donkeys in the special enclosures. No matter how cute they are, don’t feed them! (It's against the rules.) Pooches are always welcome, too! Keep your mutt on their leash while exploring the facility before finally letting him run free in the designated dog park. This spot is open to the public year-round and is just amazing for making new friends and playing with some pup peers!

The Kankakee Community College area is nestled on the southern bank of Kankakee River, away from the downtown area and its shopping and dining facilities. While you're passing through, you'll come across River Road Park, a public facility that's extremely popular among students. Just west of the park, you'll find Ice Valley Center, and a few blocks north of there is a place that your pup will adore: River Run Dog Park! This dog park, like most, has two separate enclosures for small and large breeds. You'll need to obtain a permit before Fido can play here, which will require you to supply proof of current vaccinations.

Downtown Morris is located at the corner of Bedford Road and North Division Street. You'll find a variety of shops, eateries, and entertainment venues in this area -- some of which are Fido-friendly! Looking for some good ol' fashioned off-leash fun? Paw on over to Tag-A-Long Dog Park! This recently opened dog park was built entirely by volunteers so the local pups would have a place to play. The park has plenty of grass for your precious pooch to sniff and roll around in. It's also fenced and provides benches, but you'll need to bring some drinking water and bags with you.

If you and your pooch really consider yourselves outdoorsy types, it'd be a huge faux paw not to make the short trip to Shorewood's village center. This area offers some restaurants and cafes, but the real gem here is Hammel Woods Preserve. This is a furrific lush area with walking trails and challenging hikes for advanced walkers. Pooches are welcome in the area on-leash, or they can play together in the dog park! You'll need to get a permit first, though. You can choose from a daily, monthly, or annual pass, so this park is pawfect whether you're a resident or just passing through. The park is fenced and fully equipped with benches and water.

Lily Cache Road parallels Lily Creek in the southern part of Plainfield. Apart from shops and local businesses, this street is also home to Van Horn Woods. Located on a creek with easy access to the water, the park has an extensive playground, sports fields, and a wonderful dog park! Time to run off-leash and make new friends! No need to worry if your mutt considers himself an escape artist -- the dog park is fenced, and there are so many pooches around to play with that Fido will want to stay put! Rumor has it that Van Horn Woods is haunted... can you and Scooby solve the mystery?

Warwick is a residential neighborhood in the northwestern corner of Joliet, Illinois. Essington Road animates the area with local cafes and small shops, but if you want a bit of peace and quiet, travel along Theodore Street. Here, you can visit Bright Dogs Day Care. This is a boarding facility which has a designated dog park that's open to the public! Play and exercise with your buddy here, free of charge, any day you like! The single fenced area is great for well-behaved dogs who love playing with pups of all shapes and sizes. Don’t forget to bring some water!
