Wag! Walkers know River East

River East is a petite area contained within the larger neighborhood known as Streeterville. River East is only minutes north of Chicago's bustling downtown area, the Loop. However, you don't need to travel outside the bounds of this lakeside neighborhood in order to have a good time. Movie theaters, bars,聽clubs, and live performance venues are just around every corner, offering a wonderful line-up of entertainment every night of the week. When you're hungry, fine-dining restaurants, ethnic eateries, cafes, and coffee shops give you plenty of options!聽

River East isn't just equipped in the food and nightlife scene. Several grocers are just blocks away, making quick trips to the store a breeze. The proximity of major tourist聽attractions, however, can make summertime in River East feel a little congested. But it's nothing a little trip to the beach won't cure! Chicagoans love the tranquility Lake Michigan offers and there are beaches up and down the Windy City's east coast.聽

What is the terrain like in River East?

The usual challenge of hiking trails vanishes while roaming around River East. However, while there may be no hills to scale or differing聽terrains to adjust to, there will be plenty of other difficulties such as maneuvering around other pedestrians and watching for vehicles at crosswalks.

Illinois Street, Ohio Street, and Grand Avenue together create three rectangular blocks of high rise apartment and condominium聽buildings, many of which allow pets. This means that you may not be the only one walking a dog around this uptown neighborhood. If you don't get the chance to greet those on four legs, you're sure to run into those on two as Chicago, in general, is a highly walkable area.聽There are multiple bus stops and CTA entries which can add to pedestrian traffic and create the聽potential聽for congested sidewalks.聽People-reactive dogs or those that are fearful of strangers may do better walking the area at 'off' times when many may begin their commute to work.

How many greenways are there in River East?

Lakeshore East Dog Park is a quaint, quiet neighborhood park that dogs and owners alike can enjoy. A well-manicured lawn, water feature, and magical views of Chicago's glistening glass buildings give non-canines plenty to ooh and aah over. Small pup and large hounds can run and play in the fenced-in area without a leash, but they're not confined to this space. With leashes on, there are plenty of sidewalks to explore as the dog park is only a small portion of the encompassing Lake Shore East Park.聽

River Esplanade Park is a concrete expanse along the north shoreline of the Chicago River. Much like the nearby Chicago Riverwalk, Esplanade Park is a favorite for romancing couples looking for a sunset stroll along the water.

If your pup isn't interested in a leisurely stroll in the moonlight, try out聽Polk Bros Park. This public space is a popular destination for tourists and local families, especially those with smaller children.
