Culturally rich and conveniently located, Hanover Park, IL definitely welcomes wagging tails with open arms. Just within commuting distance of Chicago, the area manages to maintain a village feel, even with a population of nearly 40,000. Hanover Park is well known for its diversity and many community events. Visit in July and you and your pooch can enjoy a movie together in the park! There’s a veterinary clinic in the village to take good care of your buddy, and an out-of-hours emergency service just a short drive away in Schamburg.
As Hanover Park has the youngest residents of any Chicago, it makes sense that it’s easy to find athletic entertainment for your pup! The Illinois Prairie Path trail surrounds the neighborhood, and the city has its own dog park. If you’re willing to drive a little, you’ll find a plethora of further off- and on-leash exercise options in the surrounding area. Keep in mind that many dog parks in the area require membership, but plenty of others are accessible with an easily obtained permit. However, there are no doggie dining options in Hanover Park -- you and your pooch will have to roam a little fur-ther afield to find somewhere to chow down!
