Park Forest is a far southern suburb of Chicago. This community is a wonderful place where dogs and their owners can get out and explore the outdoors. There are over 400 acres of parkland, including an off-leash dog park, located here. For your pup's healthcare needs, you can find a veterinary clinic in town.

A great place to take your furry friend for a walk through the forest is the Thorn Creek Trail, located just east of town. You can park off West 26th Street to connect with the 3.5-mile paved pathway. Leashed dogs are allowed to join you here. Make sure you bring waste bags and some water.

Another puptastic place to go walking or jogging with your special pal is the Old Plank Road Trail. This asphalt pathway stretches through Cook and Will Counties and is part of the National Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. Pass through suburban and natural areas as you hike along the trail with your pooch.

Take a walk through the fields with your canine companion at Winnebago Park off Wildwood Drive. There's a nice walking trail that winds through this undeveloped facility. Dogs can join you here as long as they're on a leash and you clean up after them.

Park Forest and the surrounding areas offer a range of outdoor activities that you and your furry friend can experience together.
