Wag! Walkers know Galewood

Galewood is a suburban neighborhood in Chicago, located in the easternmost reaches of the city limits and part of the larger community area of Chicago鈥檚 Austin neighborhood. One of its biggest claims to fame is the fact that the first ever Mars candy factory was founded within its borders in 1929 and they continue to produce there today. Galewood has a good mix of residential and commercial areas with both major thoroughfares and quiet neighborhood streets. The community is tightly-knit and full of local people and businesses that have been in the area for decades.

Chicago can be a lovely place for dog walking in the summer, but it is known for its brutally cold winters. In the colder months, biting winds coming off of Lake Michigan send a chill throughout the city, meaning you will want to take all of the proper precautions for warmth if you decide to walk a dog on a cold day.聽

What is the terrain like in Galewood?

The terrain in Galewood is similar to most of the Chicago area in that it is flat and mild. You will not see any steep hills, inclines, or dramatic shifts in elevation while on a walk. This can make it more challenging for hikers to find ideal terrain to exercise. Because of the suburban atmosphere, the area has a mix of artificial and natural environments, leaning more to the artificial side. Most of the streets and sidewalks are lined with trees, shrubbery, or just general green space.

There are a small number of thoroughfares that run through Galewood, but these will likely be heavy with street and foot traffic during normal rush hour times. The area is pleasant, but almost deceptively populated. It will be best to stick to the residential areas of the neighborhood for walking, or to venture into some of the parks and green areas the community has to offer.聽

How many greenways are there in Galewood?

There are a handful of parks and green spaces in Galewood. Rutherford Sayre Park extends beyond the boundaries of the neighborhood, but a portion of it dips into the neighborhood鈥檚 northern side. This section is a nature and wildlife preserve with ample green space for walking and exploring. Just across the street is the other section of the park which has tennis courts, baseball fields, and more green areas.

The largest park in Galewood is Amundsen Park which stretches across 14 acres of the southeastern corner of the community. It has several baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and a large indoor facility with a gymnasium, club center, and fitness room. There are multiple organized events that take place at Amundsen Park including an after-school program for youth in the area. Between these two parks, there is plenty of good dog walking territory for you and your pup to cover in the wider Galewood area.聽
