Batavia, Illinois is less than a 15-minute drive from North Aurora, and in west Batavia, you'll find the Batavia Bark Park, and you and Rover won't want to miss it! This dog park is free to visit and doesn't require a permit. It has three-acres of open green space, a pavilion, trees for shade, and even a little beach area! Your dogs can run, swim, and play to their hearts' content in the company of other friendly pooches and their owners. There are also sports fields, picnic shelters, and a walking/jogging path in the surrounding park, where your dog can join you as long as they are on a leash.
