Wag! Walkers know Jackson Park Highlands

The Jackson Park Highlands District is a walkable district located in Chicago, Illinois.  This community is located just a few blocks from Lake Michigan. This district is considered to be an upper-middle-class residential neighborhood with main thoroughfares of 71st Street to the south and Stony Island Avenue to the west where there are commercial areas with shops, restaurants, and other services for residents to walk. 

The weather in Chicago can vary widely between seasons and even within a season. Winters are cold with snow and summers are hot and humid while spring can be unusually rainy. Fortunately, temperature extremes are somewhat moderated on the Lake Michigan coast where Jason Park Highlands lies, and it can be a few degrees milder due to the effects of the lake in this community. Residents along the lake and their dogs will be a little warmer in winter and cooler in the summer while walking than residents further inland.

What is the terrain like in Jackson Park Highlands?

Jackson Park Highlands is located just a few blocks off Lake Michigan and is a mostly residential neighborhood that has been designated a historic site. Homes in this region have distinct architectural features that reflect the time periods in which they were developed. Houses vary and have characteristics of Classic Revival, Dutch Colonial, and Prairie School amongst other styles. Although most homes are single-family dwellings, there is some low-rise walk up apartments in the area. There are lots of large trees and grassy spots between pedestrian ways and roads. The area is relatively flat and streets are set in a simple grid pattern. Residents and dogs of all abilities can easily walk the neighborhood with little chance of getting lost or having to climb steep hills. Busy streets to the west and south have more traffic, however, the residential streets that make up the bulk of the region are quiet and park-like.

How many greenways are there in Jackson Park Highlands?

Jackson Park borders the Jackson Park Highlands on the community's north side. This large park is over 500 acres and features beachfront, a golf course, athletic fields, and a Japanese garden. However, pet owners will be most interested in the park's access to an 18-mile multi-use greenway and an enclosed dog park. The greenway runs along the shore of Lake Michigan and cyclists, joggers, and locals with their pets often use the Chicago Lakefront Trail. The park also has woodland trails and hosts a variety of plants and animals, especially birds. Keep your dog leashed in the park so as not to district local critters. The Jackson Bark is located here where your furry friend can play off-leash with other local pets. This park is the largest enclosed dog park in Chicago and was created from unused tennis courts with recycled materials. There are canine water supplies, agility obstacles, tether balls,  and wading pools for a cool day out with your pup.
