Wag! Walkers know Heart of Chicago

Heart of Chicago is a small neighborhood that is part of the greater community called the Lower West Side. Originally a community of immigrants, this area is a mix of commercial and residential. Not far out of downtown Chicago, this area is mainly urban. You won鈥檛 have to go far for grooming, pet supplies, and veterinarians, as there are many different dog-related businesses within easy walking distance in this area. There are also plenty of resources for walkers should you need a drink or suddenly get hungry on your walk.聽

Weather in Chicago can have some extremes. Winters can be brutal, but you may find that with some bundling up that walks may be possible at least part of the winter. Summers are often hot and humid, but because the Heart of Chicago is not too far off the water, breezes may make walking tolerable. Early morning walks on the hottest days can help as well.聽

What is the terrain like in Heart of Chicago?

The heart of Chicago has a very urban feel to it and as such, you won鈥檛 find a lot of grass or trees. There are a few trees on some of the streets but very little in the way of grass. Walking here will be mostly on concrete sidewalks with your dog鈥檚 biggest distraction being other dogs passing by.聽

Chicago is flat, so you won鈥檛 be able to make your walk a workout without planning in extra steps or picking up your pace. This is perfect for dogs that are not used to exercise or elderly pooches who may need to keep an easier pace. If your dog needs more exercise, there are some options available such as finding the local dog park or heading to a park where there may be trails for jogging. You will also find that there are a few parks in the area, and even more, if you are willing to venture a little further.

How many greenways are there in Heart of Chicago?

Greenways in the Heart of Chicago are limited. Harrison Park is mostly sports fields but offers some grass that might be available for you and your pet to enjoy. In addition, there are two smaller playgrounds but both of these offer little but a bit of shade for a hot summer day. If you want to get out and enjoy a bit of nature, you would be better off leaving the neighborhood for some of the adjacent greenways including Addams Medill Park which has some walking paths and McGuane Park which is a 20-acre park with grass, walking paths, and a fishing pond. Both parks are a short distance by car or walking, as well as a number of other greenways around the city. Finally, a couple of miles away to the east of Heart of Chicago, you will find two dog parks that will really allow your rambunctious puppy to burn off some energy.聽
