Walk Score in Groveland Park

Groveland Park is located on the south side of Chicago on the coast of Lake Michigan.  This neighborhood is part of the Douglas Community Area. This community has multi-family residences, walk-up apartments, townhouses, and high rise apartments. There is a large shopping mall on the west side of the community within easy walking distance for area residents. Pedestrian pathways on apartment complex grounds and in parks encourage locals to walk the neighborhood, which is undoubtedly appreciated by local canines who always enjoy a walk with their owners. 

When residents are venturing out on foot with their dog, they should be aware that weather in the Chicago area is not always cooperative for pedestrian travel. Winter can be very cold, springs rainy, and summers hot and humid. Because the community is located adjacent to Lake Michigan, some of the more extreme temperatures experienced by Chicago are moderated, making the climate in Groveland Park a little more bearable.

Most residences in the area are multi-family walk-up apartments, high rise apartments, townhouses, and condominiums. Groveland Park, named for the community, is a historic oval, remaining from the original developer. Homes are built around this park and quiet laneways and footpaths wind around and through this green space. Located just to the south of the Groveland Park oval, a high rise apartment complex has also been built around the Woodland Park oval, following a similar development pattern. There are some large undeveloped tracts of land in the area that provide natural spaces and apartment complexes have sprawling green properties with pedestrian paths while many other complexes are built on, or around parks in the area. A large commercial area and mall is situated on the west side of the community. The terrain is relatively flat with no steep terrain to encounter when walking, but natural areas may have rougher ground.

Groveland Park and Woodland Park provide beautiful green spaces with trees, lawns, and footpaths right off the doorstep of many adjacent apartment buildings. Larger complexes have extensive lawns and grounds while open undeveloped land in the neighborhood provides more greenways for locals strolling the neighborhood with their furry friends. 

The large Burnham Park along the coast of Lake Michigan sits to the east of Groveland Park and can be accessed by the 35th Street pedestrian bridge. This large park has 6 miles of open lawns, trees, and pedestrian trails right along the shore of Lake Michigan. The park also contains a skatepark, access to several beaches, and facilities including an aquarium and museum. You can also access the 18-mile greenway along the Chicago Lakefront Trail that extends north to Lincoln Park. This trail is a fantastic opportunity for Groveland Park residents with dogs who want a nice, long walk with views of the Lake.
