Wag! Walkers know Near NorSide

The Near North Side is one of Chicago's community areas comprised of several neighborhoods. Located just north of the downtown core along Lake Michigan, this affluent residential neighborhood also hosts exclusive retail boutiques and restaurants, car dealerships, offices, and has a thriving nightlife, arts, and theatre scene. This area contains what is referred to as the Magnificent Mile: a stretch of commercial and high-end stores, an upscale mall, exclusive restaurants, luxury hotels, and office towers. Shops, eateries, and services are distributed throughout the neighborhoods, along with the waterfront parks, and riverside trails, making this area highly walkable, and many residents with pets take advantage of the many attractions that can be explored on foot in the district.聽


Chicago experiences severe weather which can impede walking in the city, however, this district's proximity to Lake Michigan can moderate some of the more extreme temperatures in summer and winter, making it an overall enjoyable atmosphere for walks.

What is the terrain like in Near NorSide?

This highly urbanized community has many major thoroughfares and traffic. This district is the second largest of the downtown communities of Chicago and features the most skyscrapers and the densest residential population. The lake is located to the east and is a dominant feature of the landscape. Some sections do not conform to a traditional urban grid pattern in this neighborhood. The north branch of the Chicago River runs through Near North Side communities and contains it鈥檚 only island, Goose Island. Also marking the landscape of this neighborhood is the Magnificent Mile: a聽stretch of skyscrapers where the famous Water Tower landmark and clock are located. Although the Near North Side is a large community, it is relatively flat, and pedestrians and pets can walk for long distances in the neighborhood without difficulty. 聽There are so many attractions to take in walking in the area that it is easy to lose track of time!

How many greenways are there in Near NorSide?

There are numerous parks and greenways located throughout the affluent neighborhoods of Chicago's Near North Side. Two notable greenways are the Riverside Walk along the north branch of the Chicago River and the Lakefront Trail on Lake Michigan鈥檚 shore. The Riverwalk is a 1.5-mile pathway along the south bank that features restaurants and boat rentals. The Lakefront Trail extends 22 miles north and south along Lake Michigan. It is open to pedestrians and cyclists, so watch out for bicycles when walking your dog along the trail.

Lincoln Park is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and encompasses the 22-mile Lakefront Trail, The Lincoln Park Zoo, and Ohio Street Beach. There are also playgrounds, spray parks, and recreation facilities. Dogs must remain on leash.

There are several dog parks in and around the neighborhood with fenced off-leash areas for pups to play. Some of these include Larrabee Dog Park, Ohio Place Dog Park, and Lakeshore East Dog Park.
