Round Lake Beach is a lively area, with a large downtown center and large plots of homes. The area is a suburb of Chicago and is located surrounded by lakes, offering lots of watersport activities to residents. There are also plenty of parks along the shore of each lake and throughout the city, most of them dog-friendly with room to run, play, and enjoy a gorgeous day outside in the city.
To the west of the city is the lake known as Long Lake, with gorgeous beaches surrounded by residential homes. On the southern shore is Long Lake Park, an area with rolling hills and grassy fields. There are forested trails that lead to open space next to the lake, with a picnic area featuring views of the lake and space to run and play in. Water fountains and benches can be found throughout the park and can be enjoyed by you and your leashed pups.
For a change, Orchard Park is not around any lakes, but still offers smaller bodies of water like ponds and a stream that cuts through the park for fishing. Around the ponds are open spaces too, with places to sit, play, and enjoy a nice picnic next to the river. There's a pool, a trampoline, a scenic fountain, and paved walkway for residents. Pups can walk along the sidewalk and enjoy additional amenities like clean-up bags, water fountains, benches, and trash bins.
Despite the nearest vet being .5 miles away in Round Lake, Round Lake Beach offers even more dog-friendly parks like Greenview Park, Whitewood Park, and Fairview Park.
