Wag! Walkers know West Lawn

West Lawn, Chicago is a community area located in the southwest section of Chicago. This community area is primarily residential with industrial activity associated with the railroad tracks on its perimeter. There is a large commercial area located just south of West Lawn. However, it can not be accessed on foot due to railroad tracks and industrial activity in the area. 

Smaller thoroughfares, such as 63rd Street and Marquette Road, have businesses and services that residents who live near these streets can reach on foot. The main thoroughfare in the community, Pulaski Road, has plenty of restaurants, retail shops, grocers, service stations, and other businesses that many residents of West Lawn can walk to. 

Winter weather in Chicago may not be cooperative for on foot travel with your dog as it can be quite cold with snow while spring tends to be wet and rainy.  If you decide to brave Chicago's inclement weather be prepared with warm, dry outerwear. 

What is the terrain like in West Lawn?

This large community area covers 2.98 square miles. The terrain is flat, and streets are laid out in a grid pattern. Walking in the neighborhood with your dog is easy for pedestrians and pups of all ability levels with no rough terrain or steep inclines. Residential properties have large lawns, yards, and trees and most residential streets have grassy verges separating sidewalks from roadways. The neighborhood is surrounded by railroad tracks and railyards on the west, south, and east sides that do not allow for pedestrian traffic in those directions. 


West Lawn's main thoroughfare, Pulaski Road, has lots of commercial activity and traffic associated with it. Residents walking their dogs in the community can enjoy quiet residential streets with little traffic. If walking your dog down alleys, watch for residents backing out of garages and keep your dog leashed and close to you to keep him safe from any nearby cars or traffic.
