Wag! Walkers know West Woodlawn

West Woodlawn lies to the west of the Woodland neighborhood which borders Lake Michigan. The neighborhood was historically home to many of the professors who worked at the University of Chicago. This is a primarily residential neighborhood divided by E. 63rd St.

This neighborhood has lots of churches and schools for its size and green space is common at the edges of blocks. Businesses in the neighborhood are mostly limited to corner stores and gas stations. Along S. Cottage Grove Ave., you can find several small restaurants, mostly for casual quick bites.聽The Dogs Only Grooming Salon is not far from West Woodlawn, and offers excellent grooming services for your dog, especially if she does not do well around cats. North of West Woodland, Canis Sapiens Dog Training offers training services.

From West Woodland, you can walk onto the campus of the University of Chicago and enjoy strolling the grounds, especially around the charming Washington Lagoon.

What is the terrain like in West Woodlawn?

West Woodlawn is a flat, primarily residential neighborhood. Homes tend to be closely spaced with small fenced front yards. There is a good divider between sidewalk and street and lots of tree cover, but because the fences of the yards face directly onto the sidewalk, there is not much room to walk your dog on a loose leash.

For variety in your walk, head towards the campus of the University of Chicago where pleasant paths wind around Washington Lagoon and through open and grassy fields as well as small forested patches. Your dog will love the chance to walk on a loose leash and it is a good idea to expose your dog to water in this safe area. For a great, long walk with your dog on a loose leash or on a bicycle, go from the campus to the Midway Plaisance Park and follow it to the natural terrain around the coast including a wide, sandy beach.

How many greenways are there in West Woodlawn?

West Woodland benefits in green space from its proximity to the University of Chicago. A beautiful natural area borders the neighborhood with well-maintained trails running through beautiful grassy fields studded with intermittent trees and around the lovely Washington Lagoon. The shoreline is natural, as is Bynum Island, which has a trail running through its dense forest.

Your dog can wade in shallow areas of this lake and the smaller Casting Pond. To keep the exploration going, follow the beautiful Midway Plaisance Park on the grassy space in between topiaries. This park will lead you to the Garden of the Phoenix and surrounding park which surrounds the East Lagoon.

Miles of natural shoreline and beach, as well as little islands and shallow areas, provide a wonderful playground for you and your dog on hot Chicago days, as well as an excellent chance to expose your dog to water in a safe and fun way.
