Located in northwest Chicago, Kilbourn Park is a quiet residential neighborhood set away from the bustling downtown area. The neighborhood is known for being clean, quiet, and, most importantly, dog-friendly. The Chicago Pet Clinic, located on North Cicero Avenue, sits on the western border of the neighborhood. Despite its relaxed reputation, Kilbourn Park features a variety of restaurants offering international cuisine as well as an extensive list of entertainment options. 

Kilbourn Park is a quieter area in Chicago to enjoy a peaceful walk with your dog while exploring different sights. While winters in Chicago are harsh at times due to lake-effect snow from Lake Michigan, the rest of the year is pleasant and perfect for walks with your dog. Be wary in the summer months though, as the heat of the sun raises the temperature of cement and asphalt and could hurt your pooch's paws if he steps on the hot surface.

Visitors to Kilbourn Park experience a mix of sidewalks, roadways, and green areas. While it is a city with artificially constructed walkways, many of the tree-lined sidewalks feature grassy borders with the road. Your dog won't have a problem finding a place to sniff around and explore. The neighborhood's playground and main green area, Kilbourn Park, sits in the center of the community and stretches to the northern border of the neighborhood. 

Kilbourn Park is about three miles in circumference and about 1.5 miles in diameter, making a long walk across the neighborhood easily attainable. The streets and greenways are mainly flat, so your pet won't be out of breath during the walk. At most, expect a 15-foot gain in elevation. If you're looking for a steep hike or challenging terrain, this area is not likely to be the place to find it. Instead, it provides walking terrain for walkers at any level.

The main greenway's central location offers a perfect spot to explore different attractions. Dutifully named after the neighborhood it resides in, Kilbourn Park features a playground, several courts and fields for sports, a running track and field house, and the neighborhood's organic greenhouse. The Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse is a community location dedicated to sustainable gardening. The park is about a quarter-mile long and offers a green grassy area to walk through with your pet, though keep in mind that you may need to keep him on a leash throughout this area to ensure the safety of your pup and other pedestrians.

While there aren't any other significant parks in the neighborhood, the tree-lined streets offer some green space, and the Merchant Park Community Garden off of North Milwaukee Avenue borders the northeast side of Kilbourn Park. There's also a grassy stretch of land on the southern border of the neighborhood off of West Belmont Street, stretching down Kolmar Avenue.
