Wag! Walkers know Uptown

Once a hub for entertainment, Uptown's historical significance during the jazz and silent film eras still can be seen in its main square today. There's a lot to do in and around this cultured neighborhood with your furry companion. A number of restaurants and breweries welcome those on two legs or four, including a waterfront patio serving up everything from street tacos and聽seafood staples to classic American cheeseburgers.聽

Lucky for you and your pet, Uptown also boasts some of Chicagoans favorite dog parks, so when you're done sipping on a craft cocktail or enjoying delicious Vietnamese pho, you and the pooch can head to any number of dog-friendly parks. While this neighborhood was named after a corner store that was popular in its early years, its name also calls attention to the fact that it is less than seven miles north of Chicago's center, meaning trips to the exciting possibilities of the city's core are never too far away.

What is the terrain like in Uptown?

Chicago is naturally flat as it rests on the Chicago Plain. It's so flat that Chicagoans have to hunt for hills in the winter if they're craving fun winter activities聽such as sledding. That being said, it's unlikely your dog's walk will be interrupted by steep incline or knee-buckling decline.聽

What's more likely to be a challenge during a walk in Uptown is the presence and activity of pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles.聽Lined with old brownstones and sturdy red-bricked townhomes, Montrose Avenue sees steady traffic, especially during commuting hours. Marine Dr. and Clarendon Avenue also experience some traffic since their sidewalks are lined with CTA bus stops. Nothing compares to N. Lakeshore Dr. which melds together with Highway 41, arguably becoming more of an eastern border of Uptown than Lake Michigan's shoreline.聽

If working with an anxious dog, it may be best to avoid these busier areas or pack a lot of treats to reward them for approaching scary territory.

How many greenways are there in Uptown?

Although close to the highway and can experience traffic noise, Puptown Dog Park is a local favorite of dog-owners for its smart design. Multiple entries and exit gates ensure efficient traffic in and out of the dog park, while the center of the fenced-in area gives plenty of open space for dogs to play.聽

Margate Park Fieldhouse offers a lot to humans - basketball, yoga, soccer, and more - and the grounds surrounding it are dog-friendly. Dogs must be leashed here, however, so be respectful and keep your pet and others safe.聽

Montrose Dog Beach can be a beautiful escape for you and a fun-filled adventure for Fido. A lengthy fence recedes all the way from the sandy shore into the water, ensuring that your dog has a controlled, safe area to run, play, and swim. There's a free parking lot, which in the heat of summer can be crowded, but on early spring days will feel ample.聽
