The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Franklin Park
Southwest Oak Park
The southwestern region of Oak Park borders with Franklin Park and offers access to two dog parks within walking distance of each other. You will find Forest Park Dog Park on Lehmer Street, home to an extensive off-leash area split into two sections for small and large pups. Both fenced sections are covered in wood chips and mulch, and provide benches for owners. However, the park lacks shade, especially during hot periods. Maple Dog Park is located less than a 5-minute walk south of Forest Park, on Maple Street. This park also has plenty of space to run, romp, and enjoy some off-leash playtime. Benches and drinking water fountains are provided, but don't forget to bring some waste baggies!
Portage Park is a northwestern neighborhood of Chicago known for its amazing outdoor shopping district. However, your pooch probably isn't much of a shopper, so you'll want to head to Portage Park, a 35-acre park established in 1913 and the neighborhood's namesake. This is a great local spot with a friendly community of people enjoying their weekends or celebrating memorable events together in the park. The place features multiple walking trails, benches and picnic spots; pooches are always welcome, but should stay on-leash. Chopin Park is another great public park which is usually extremely busy on weekends. The park has walking trails and a designated fenced area for pups.
The busy and bustling Milwaukee Avenue crosses the Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois, and its dining and entertainment venues make for a thriving nightlife scene. Some eateries offer pet-friendly patios or outdoor tables, but before you try all the delicious delicacies nearby, work up an appetite in Wicker Park. This public park features an extensive playground with a fountain, grassy area and paved walking trails, as well as a designated dog park with a sufficient fence and a huge area to run off-leash with other barking buddies. The place is packed and busy even on weekdays. After working up a good sweat (or pant), and your new friends can migrate to Big Star, an atmospheric café serving mouthwatering tacos at outdoor tables.
Bucktown is a northern neighborhood in Chicago bordered by the stream of the North Branch Chicago River. If you're in the area and you're looking for a dog park, you're in luck! Churchill Field Park is a fully fenced doggy facility with benches and water fountains, as well as plenty of mutts to play with! Need more fun? You're also welcome to pay a visit to Walsh Playground Dog Park in Walsh Park, which has a spacious, shaded dog park and walking trails. However, the terrain of the trails can be a bit harsh for sensitive paws. Be sure to bring plenty of drinking water and waste baggies with you for your adventures in Bucktown!
One of the northwestern, remote boroughs of the Windy City, the community area of Norwood Park encompasses a number of small neighborhoods that include sleepy residential quarters and busy commercial areas. Your pup will thank you if you let him burn some energy, stretch his legs, and socialize with puppy peers at Norwood Park Dog Friendly Area! This is a fenced dog park with a playground, benches, and shade. If your bellies are growling after all the fun, end the day with excellent bar fare and a variety of courses at Mo Daileys, a cool local bar with outdoor seating and friendly staff.
