Rosemoor is neighborhood between Roseland and the marshland around Lake Calumet. Rosemoor encompasses Chicago State University with homes in the area tending to be single-family homes with lovely architecture. Most buildings are one or two stories and are set back from the sidewalk behind grassy yards that may or may not be fenced, so you'll need to be wary of property lines.

The divider between sidewalk and road is wide, which provides plenty of opportunities to use the space for working on heeling with your dog or simply allowing her to roam back and forth on a long leash. 

For some more open environments, you can head into the forest around North Pullman and cross into the marshland around Lake Calumet. This area offers an incredibly diverse natural habitat for you to explore with your pup. By following the Calumet River, you can find even more space to explore in Hegewisch Marsh Park and the Beaubien Forest Preserve.

Walking through Rosemoor is suitable for walkers of any experience level. The wide grassy divider between sidewalk and road makes you feel comfortable either allowing for looser leash walking or participating in more strenuous activities such as biking or skating with your pup at your side. Remember to practice your usual safety protocols, however. 

If you are bored of neighborhood walking, it is easy to find more space to wander in the marshland around Calumet Lake. These spaces may offer opportunities to exercise on wider pathways. A diverse terrain like this will give your dog an opportunity to explore marshy and wet settings as well as heavily forested areas and dense shrubbery. Such extensive exploration through varied terrain will exercise your dog's body and mind much more thoroughly than simple neighborhood walking can do. It will also develop her creative thinking and impulse control as she picks her way through unfamiliar footing and encounters new smells and creatures.

Rosemoor is fortunate in being near a natural environment for you and your dog to explore. This incredibly ecologically diverse habitat will provide you with the opportunity to see all sorts of interesting wildlife and natural scenes. You can start your walk around Lake Calhoun at the big Marsh Park, where walking trails provide you with paths around the marshy terrain. You can also take a canoe or kayak through areas where it is allowed.

You can also venture into the Indian Ridge, where water areas are separated by narrow land bridges that you can walk with your pooch. Following this marsh to the Calumet River will bring you to the Hegewisch Marsh park,  which is drier, more forested, and may give you the opportunity to see a few larger animals. Following the river even further down will bring you to the Burnham Nature Preserve which is mostly natural grassland with the Grand River running through it.
