Dog Walking in Stone Park

Illinois is known for a multitude of things. The state is mainly flatland, and is full of farms. However, it also has a coast with some gorgeous beaches overlooking Lake Michigan. Stone Park is located very close to one of the largest cities in the country, Chicago. Chicago is nothing short of magical all year round. It is full of dog parks, food, and plenty of furrific activities. 

Just because Stone Park is primarily a residential neighborhood doesn't mean there isn't plenty for you and your pooch to do in the area! There are plenty of dog parks around the neighborhood, so your pup will have plenty of op-paw-tunities to sniff out some new furry friends! If you are looking for something a little more adventurous than a dog park, head to Thatcher Woods, Jerome Huppert Woods, or Fullerton Woods Family Picnic Area. There is a park in the vicinity for every day of the week and every mood you and your pup may be experiencing. 

One important thing to keep in mind while visiting Stone Park is the weather. No one is exaggerating when they say the area has some of the worst weather in the country. In fact, some days in winter, it is colder than Mars! If you are visiting in winter, make sure you take a sweater and booties for your pup!
