Wag! Walkers know Edgewater Glen

Edgewater, as its name implies, is located along Lake Michigan on the northeast side of Chicago and is one of Chicago's 77 community areas. This region includes several unique and culturally and ethnically diverse neighborhoods including Andersonville, Edgewater Glen, Broadway, Sheridan Road and Edgewater Beach. This community along with new immigrants, and people groups that have brought their traditions, culture and ethnic cuisines and shops to Edgewater make this neighborhood culturally diverse and provides character to the area. There is a wide variety of establishments, eateries, shops, and services located throughout the region that are walkable for area residents and many unique businesses. 


The appropriateness of the weather in Chicago for on foot travel depends on the season. Winters often see below freezing weather, while early spring can be chilly and wet. Cool summer breezes off the water are welcomed by hikers and their hounds on hot, humid summer days.

What is the terrain like in Edgewater Glen?

Edgewater is located along Lake Michigan and contains several distinct neighborhoods. The terrain is flat and most roads follow a typical grid pattern. Look for safe crossing points when negotiating main thoroughfares on foot with your furry friend. There is a large green space, harbor, and several beaches along the waterfront. Residential buildings include historical walks up apartments, townhouses, and multi-story apartments as well as some high rise apartments on residential streets. Some areas have single-family homes in the region including a handful of mansions along Sheridan Road. Sheridan Road is also lined in one area by a row of old growth locust trees that are unique in the area. 


Main thoroughfares feature commercial activity and plenty of traffic accessing businesses, waterfront, beaches, and harbors. Be careful when walking your dog in the region, keep your pet securely leashed, and be vigilant for traffic entering and exiting parking lots and at busy intersections.

How many greenways are there in Edgewater Glen?

There is a very large green space, Margate Park, along the lake on the eastern border of Edgewater that connects to Lincoln Park via the Chicago Lakefront Trail Greenway. Margate Park encompasses several beaches, harbors, and green spaces with lawns, plenty of trees, and walking trails that are ideal for area residents with canine companions for walking. There are even a few designated dog-friendly areas located here. 

Puptown Dog Park is a fenced off-leash dog park with facilities for local pups to enjoy. There is also a dog-friendly area on the waterfront known as the Montrose Dog Beach. Pups participating in beach play must have an inexpensive "Dog-Friendly Tag" which is available from local veterinarians, ensuring dogs are vaccinated and free of communicable disease. This is a unique opportunity for local pet owners to play in the water with their off-leash dogs that is not available in many urban communities or beaches.
