Wag! Walkers know Fernwood

Fernwood is on the west side of the Roseland community. This was a beautiful neighborhood that was known for a garden-like pathway that ran between 95th Street and 103rd Street and was known as the Fernwood Parkway. Now, this is a primarily residential neighborhood with businesses clustered along S. Halsted St. The R. Lewis Dog Training Center is only a few miles west if your dog is in need of some training, and pet supplies are a short distance south if you need any food or treats.聽

There are several pleasant regional parks in this neighborhood including Fernwood Park and Block Park where you can get a change from the typical neighborhood walk in. For more exploration, the wilderness around Lake Calumet is a long bike ride or a short drive east. South of Fernwood, Calumet River winds through some other natural areas for you to explore like the Whistler Woods Forest Preserve.

What is the terrain like in Fernwood?

This flat neighborhood is made up of small homes with little grassy yards that are rarely fenced. There is a good divider between the sidewalk and the road so you will feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash throughout most of Fernwood.

Blocks tend to be long and straight and you don't have to worry about intersecting traffic for miles at a time. For the longest distances without worrying about intercepting traffic, you can travel on the roads along Highway 57 where you can have miles of travel unobstructed by traffic as well as grass and woods on one side of the road.

There are a couple of small regional parks where you and your dog can stretch your legs, but for the most diverse terrain, head east to the wilderness around Lake Calumet. Miles of marsh, as well as open water, will let your dog get to experience a lot of diverse environments.

How many greenways are there in Fernwood?

Fernwood has several regional parks, but the most interesting wilderness in this area is around Lake Calumet. This lovely lake has open water that you can enjoy walking around or experience in a kayak or canoe. The West Shore and Gull Island have extensive bird life as well as other wildlife to interest and excite your pup. Big Marsh Park and Railroad Marsh are beautiful and ecologically dense environments full of wildlife and lovely views.

You can wear waders and hike through the marsh or stick to the raised trails. Either way, you will enjoy the views and your dog will get new experiences. On the northeast side of the marshy area, the Van Vlissingen Prairie has grasslands and forests for you to explore as well for a completely natural experience. If you are looking for even more exploration, you can follow the Calumet River down through the Hegewisch Marsh Park and the lovely Beaubien Forest Preserve.
