Streamwood is a suburb of northwest Chicago with a population of more than 40,000 people. What is now the Village of Streamwood was once mostly populated with farms, but gradually those farms turned into suburbs. Today, Streamwood is primarily a residential community, but it also has a thriving business district, and there's plenty to do in the area for the whole family. The Village of Streamwood has its very own animal hospital, and there are other veterinary clinics just minutes away in the greater Chicago area.
Chicago has a stellar parks and recreation system, and Streamwood itself is home to hundreds of acres of parks and recreation space within its two parks districts. Streamwood doesn't have a designated off-leash dog park, but there are parks in the community where your dog is welcome to join you on a leash. One such park is the 19.5-acre Sunny Hill Park. There are playgrounds, a skate park, a splash pad, a disc golf course, and many more fun activities at this local park.
The Village of Streamwood is a great place to live if you're a dog owner, and the surrounding areas provide even more opportunities for having fun with your canine companion.
