Wag! Walkers know Lincoln Square

Lincoln Square is a Northside neighborhood that's steeped in German heritage and culture. Even today, it wears its multi-cultural history as a badge of merit, keeping several locally owned, German establishments in business for decades. The community hosts a number of music festivals, particularly around the time of Oktoberfest. While it's not uncommon for Chicagoan neighborhoods to be prideful of their immigrant cultures, Lincoln Square is arguably one of the more German-influenced neighborhoods. 

Walking around Lincoln Square, you and your pup are sure to see a number of relics to Chicago's early history with old houses and apartment buildings, but you'll find just as many restaurants and shopping centers. The locality of a Catholic school, U.S. post office, and ethnic grocery outlets give Lincoln Square appeal to young families, singles, and seniors alike. A major part of its appeal may be its distance from the city center, which gives the area marginally cheaper rent costs but also the ability to travel to downtown by car or public transit. 

What is the terrain like in Lincoln Square?

Older, less affluent neighborhoods typically experience cracking sidewalks and roads with potholes. This is especially true in the northern Midwest where the winters are harsher and therefore naturally wear down asphalt and concrete more quickly. While walking your dog through Lincoln Square, you may find a few spots that are less than well-maintained, but never anything dangerous or challenging. In the summer when warmth and longer days give way to construction, you may find some roads or sidewalks closed.

Due to a number of geographical factors, hills aren't typically present in Chicago, so don't expect any huffing or puffing up inclines. If looking for an added challenge in order to exercise yourself and your pup, try walking longer distances. If your dog is wary of lots of traffic or suspicious of anyone they don't know, you may want to avoid W. Lawrence Ave. and N. Western Ave. where a number of bus stops make for added traffic and strangers lining the sidewalks. 

How many greenways are there in Lincoln Square?

Although small in size, Gross Park offers a playground, basketball courts, and athletic fields for children and their families to enjoy. Dogs are welcome here but must be leashed.

Walk ten minutes directly south of Lincoln Square and you'll come across Welles Park. Complete with multiple recreational opportunities and an indoor pool, Welles Park is a public space for athletes but also musicians and music-lovers. There are also open, grassy lawns, giving your canine friend the perfect opportunity to run, roll, sniff, and fetch. 

Lincoln Square is unique in the fact that although it isn't laden with many parks, it is between two larger ones: Winnemac and Ronan. Ronan Park stretches up and melds together with both River Park and Legion Park, creating a long green spine that runs through Chicago's north and northwest neighborhoods. This trifecta of parks is along the Chicago River, giving its visitors serene views of the water and the wildlife that calls it home.
