Wag! Walkers know Portage Park

Portage Park is a large neighborhood on the northwest side of Chicago. Homes in Portage Park tend to be single family homes of two stories with interesting architecture and cute little arched entryways. Yards are small, but unfenced. The divider is wide and studded with plenty of trees, so walking along the neighborhood streets throughout most of Portage Park is very pleasant. You may even feel comfortable enough to allow your pup to ride alongside your bike or skateboard on your outing.

Portage Park encompasses or is near several regional parks with ballparks as well as shady walking areas for you and your dog to enjoy. Portage Park also has ball fields in the center, but around it are attractive walking paths as well as grassy fields where you can play fetch or frisbee for some additional exercise. A large forest is also situated nearby where you can enjoy more natural exploration.

What is the terrain like in Portage Park?

Walking through Portage Park is generally very pleasant. The small but grassy yards and wide divider provide enough room for you to feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash or being on a skateboard, bicycle, or rollerblades at his side. There are a variety of regional parks for you to explore, including Portage Park with its wide fields and lots of trails for you to enjoy with your pup.

If you are looking for more extensive natural space to wander with your dog, there is a huge natural area not far from Portage Park. This forest encompasses miles of natural woodland with trails so that you and your dog can get in touch with nature. The North Branch of the Chicago River runs through this forest and offers interesting terrain for you and your dog to explore. It is especially important to expose your developing puppy to water in a safe way so that she will enjoy it for years to come.

How many greenways are there in Portage Park?

A large forest is relatively near Portage Park and is encompassed of several parks including LaBagh Woods, the Forest Glen Woods, and going further into the Thaddeus S. 鈥淭ed鈥 Lechowicz Woods. This forest is large enough to allow you hours and hours of exploration through a variety of terrains from forest, to bog land, to pond. A forest of this size is large enough to support a range of wildlife, from birds to deer, raccoons, and foxes living in the forest.

Even if you don't see the wildlife yourself, your dog will enjoy smelling the trails left by wildlife and listening to the sounds of animals in the underbrush. A dog that is exercised out in the woods in this way will tire out mentally and physically faster and the exercise will help develop her mind and creative thinking skills as well as her self control, as opposed to neighborhood walking which too often encourages over stimulation and bad behavior.
