Wag! Walkers know Wicker Park

Wicker Park is a highly walkable place - as many neighborhoods in Chicago are. Within this trendy neighborhood, you can walk to multiple locally-owned bookshops, fashion boutiques, vintage stores, restaurants, community gardens, and coffee shops. Off of the main strips of Milwaukee and Damen avenues, you'll find cozy, historic family homes resting shoulder to shoulder along sidewalks.聽

And while Wicker Park is known for its charm and聽youthfulness,聽there's plenty聽more to聽explore聽in the Chicago聽area. Walking access to the train station off Damen Avenue will get you to the blue line, which connects in a hub downtown to several other lines, getting you to your next urban adventure: Navy Pier, famous blues taverns, Michelin-Star restaurants, Wrigley Field, and award-winning art and history museums.聽

In fact, getting from Wicker Park to downtown will cost you less than three bucks and take less than 30 minutes, frequently beating out car traffic. There are, however, regulations to follow if you don't own a certified service animal: only small dogs are allowed on CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) routes, must be contained in a carrier, and while inside the carrier, cannot take up a seat.聽

What is the terrain like in Wicker Park?

Even though this area is not central Chicago, it is still a mostly urban neighborhood. A main highway聽cuts through its middle and locals and tourists alike mainly get around on foot, that makes walking your dog around Wicker Park semi-chaotic, especially if your dog is skittish or reactive towards noise, movement, or strangers. It's not uncommon for locals to walk their dogs throughout the busy sidewalks, so if your dog is aggressive or overly excited by other canines, you may want to be wary of heavily-trafficked areas, such as Damen or Milwaukee avenues.聽

This region is very flat. A few slants or slopes may present themselves, but it's hardly anything you or Fido will notice. Parks within the area offer both grassy lots, shaded by mature trees, as well as paved walking paths. Because a lot of residents rely on walking or biking for everyday commuting, Chicago's neighborhoods cater to the pedestrian with plentiful sidewalks, bike lanes, and protected crosswalks.

How many greenways are there in Wicker Park?

Polonia Triangle is in the lower right corner of Wicker Park. It's a busy area due to the concentration of train and bus stops lining its triangular shape. If your dog is excited by lots of movement, this may not be an ideal place for walking. If they aren't, however, this is a great place to stop, rest, and people-watch while on a leisurely walk. A water fountain offers a bit of a view and it's well lit at night. There's not much for your dog to sniff at, however, as its footage is covered by pavement.聽

Dean Playground Park is exactly what it sounds like: A playground. This may be a great spot to stop with the kids, but dogs are not allowed within the park. Plan accordingly if you're out with the family four-leggers as well as the kiddos.

Wicker Park is centrally located within its namesake. It has picnic tables, but also open grassy areas which would be perfect for foregoing a table and picnicking on a聽blanket.聽The grounds are well-maintained and you'll see many blooming beauties during the spring and summer.聽Mature trees line the park, giving you the option to rest in the shade when throwing the ball around leads to you and your pup panting. There's also a water feature, playground, and designated dog park where you can enjoy watching your聽pet socialize. It's not covered with any grass, however, so during rainy seasons, be prepared for mud.聽

Walsh Park,聽a two-acre park located along the Bloomingdale Trail (part of the interurban 606),聽聽is just a little north of Wicker Park. A popular spot for young families and teens due to its favorite amenities - basketball hoops,聽open field for sports, and playground - it's also a great place for dog-owners because of its designated DFA (dog-friendly area).聽
