A little over five miles south of Chicago's bustling center, East Hyde Park draws everyone from families, young professionals, and students to its quarters. A mostly residential area with cheaper rent prices than downtown, East Hyde Park is a quaint, cozy South-side neighborhood that has just as much to offer tourists as it does residents. 

Some common attractions are the Museum of Science and Industry, the University of Chicago campus (which is sprawling, full of green spaces and historical architecture), Lakefront Trail, historical homes and buildings, and access to the beautiful sandy beaches of Lake Michigan which serves as an eastern border to the neighborhood. 

While there's plenty to do and explore in East Hyde Park, you can easily head north to see central Chicago by any method of transportation in twenty minutes or less. If you plan to travel by bus, CTA allows small, contained dogs as well as service animals.

East Hyde Park is a relatively small region of Chicago which is defined by its two most prominent borders: Lake Michigan (east) and the Metra Electric District and South Shore Line railways.

The execution and success of the World's Fair meant that several residential and commercial buildings had to be built, many of which make up East Hyde Park today. That's why when you and your pooch are walking around the neighborhood, you'll find that the blocks are long and wide, due to the apartment buildings that take up their footage. 

Small and with a grid infrastructure, walking around East Hyde Park will require little mapping out. Due to the proximity of the University, there are ample crosswalks and sidewalks so you and your pet can stay safe. The closeness of the railway can make it a little noisy and can be especially harrowing for dogs frightened by loud noises, so steering clear of S. Stony Island and S. Lake Park avenues will help keep your pup in a cheery mood.

Located in southern East Hyde Park in Jackson Park, Jackson Bark is a space designed with dogs in mind. Watch your canine companion foster friendships with other dogs of the community while you sit comfortably in the shade or soak up some sun. Jackson Bark has a plethora of toys that entice as well as training equipment that can prep a pooch for competition or simply exercise both their muscles and their mind. 

Close to the bark park and also residing in Jackson Park is the Garden of the Phoenix.  With over 100 cherry blossom trees, peaceful koi ponds, and a public art sculpture designed by Yoko Ono, this garden offers miles of footpaths with plenty to see along the way.
