Wag! Walkers know Golden Gate

Located in the Community Area of Riverdale on the southeast side of Chicago, the neighborhood聽of Golden Gate features a park of the same name. This neighborhood聽is mostly residential. There are also two schools in the neighborhood聽and a park with athletic facilities. Pet owners in Golden Gate can get around the area with their dogs and visit facilities, schools, and the few businesses located here easily as the community is not large.聽


Because of its inland location, temperatures in Golden Gate are not moderated by the lake and the mercury can plummet in winter to sub-zero temperatures. Wear warm winter gear when walking your dog in the cooler months. Summers tend to be hot and humid, however, this neighborhood聽is very shady and will cool pedestrians and pets walking the blocks in the summer. Rain is frequent in the spring, so remember to take an umbrella on an overcast spring day so you and your pup don鈥檛 get wet!

What is the terrain like in Golden Gate?

Golden Gate is bordered by 130th street on the north and the Calumet River on the south. The Union Pacific Railroad tracks run along the western border and Langley Avenue sits on the east. There is a green strip with an electrical towers running through the community. However, pedestrians should avoid areas with high voltage equipment.聽

The bulk of the community consists of single-family residences with large trees, lawns, and gardens. On the east side of the community, there is a multifamily housing complex. The terrain is flat and roads tend to curve in the area so pedestrians in the neighborhood do not have to concern themselves with steep hikes and can experience a different vista as they travel with their dogs through this tree-lined neighborhood. There is a boat launch and docks at the riverfront and many residents enjoy the river located adjacent to the community. Large schools and a park provide open areas within the region.

The Golden Gate Park is located in the northwest corner of the Golden Gate neighborhood and this park provides baseball fields, basketball courts, and water spray facilities. You can visit the park with your dog on a leash, however, keep your dog off athletic fields when in use and be sure to clean up after him. Heavily treed lanes in the residential areas make for a green space experience right off most residents front doorstep.聽


The Beaubien Forest Reserve is located adjacent to Golden Glen and this preserve provides a large natural area and park with trails that many locals take advantage of for strolls with their canine companion. You will find local wildlife here, some of whom may not appreciate your dog as much as you do!
