Dog Walking in Hampshire

Hampshire is a village of more than 6,000 people in Kane County, Illinois. It's only 60 miles from Chicago, but there is plenty to do within the village limits in Hampshire, which boasts an excellent parks and recreation system. Hampshire is a close-knit community, and you'll often find community events taking place at its local parks. One of these parks is called the Ralph Seyller Memorial Park, and it's located slightly east of central Hampshire. Ralph Seyller Park is ideal for large gatherings, sporting events, or a trip to the playground. This park is nestled along a walking path where you can bring your dog for a lovely stroll, but they must be on a leash.

After a day at the park in Hampshire with your dog and your family, you can refuel at a local restaurant called Red Ox. Red Ox Restaurant and Bar is a popular family restaurant in central Hampshire that allows pets to join their owners for a meal at their outdoor tables. They serve meals like BBQ baby back ribs, steak dinners, pizza, burgers, seafood, and pasta. Not only does Hampshire have pet-friendly parks and restaurants, but there is also an animal hospital in town, and several more beyond the borders of the village. Hampshire is a wonderful place to live with your dog, and you'll find plenty to do in the area that doesn't require leaving your pet at home!
