Dog Areas in Harvey, IL

Originally a manufacturing town, Harvey, Illinois has plenty for you and your pup to do. Although there aren't many parks within the city, there are many other parks in nearby towns and cities. However, to truly have a good time in the area, you will most likely need a car.

Even though Harvey is a small town compared to large neighboring towns like Chicago, there are still plenty of attractions here. The city is home to many historical sites, shops, and restaurants. The bustling city has a much different feel than others because it features a mixture of commercial and residential real estate. This makes it a great place to run some errands with your pup on foot.

When you've explored all of Harvey, consider heading to one of many large state parks nearby. You and your pooch will never run out of terrain to explore in the parks, guaranteeing a great time! Or, if you're not in the mood to explore nature, head to one of the large cities in the area where you can enjoy a delicious meal or afternoon of shopping. Just be sure to keep your pooch leashed at all times, and make sure you have doggie poop bags.

    Drive only fifteen minutes from Harvey to find Forest Preserves of Cook County. This large forest preserve is pretty bare bones (pun totally intended!), as it only contains a forest -- no playgrounds, no sports fields. This is the perfect destination if you want to spend some time alone with your pooch in the wilderness. Consider taking a few hours to have a wonderful picnic with your pooch. Take a picnic blanket, plenty of food, water, toys, and doggie poop bags. And don't forget to take a good book to read when your pooch is tired and napping after a long day of playing!

    Technically, Kickapoo Meadows is in another city, but lucky for you, it is still only a five-minute drive from Harvey! This large forest preserve is a giant stretch of land where you and your pup can run, relax, and play. The park also has its own landing strip for small planes, so you may even see a plane or two land. This bare forest preserve doesn't offer any amenities for pups or their parents, so you will have to take your own doggie toys, water, waste bags, and leash. Trust us -- you both will have a pawtastic time here!

Plus, if you're looking for a volunteering opportunity, the park invites people to volunteer to clean up and maintain the park. Since this is not a dog park, you will definitely have to keep your pooch leashed.

    Although the trip to Wolf Lake Memorial Park will take you about half an hour, it is well worth it. This park has two large lakes surrounded by parks and greenery, and is located in two states -- Indiana and Illinois. This park has a ton of activities for you and your pooch! You can walk around the park, run, or bike and get plenty of exercise. You can also spend the day out on the water with your pooch! Soak in some sun, read a good book, or catch some fish. You can even cook it up on the grills in the park!
