Wag! Walkers know Downtown Oak Park

Oak Park is a village just west of Chicago, Illinois. The Downtown Oak Park area is just 10 miles from the Chicago Loop district and is the central business district of this community. This area is highly walkable comprised of several blocks with dozens of restaurants, eateries, cafes, pubs, unique retail shops, and other services all within close proximity. Residents can enjoy walking to access the many offerings of this active neighborhood. There is even a special pet boutique located here that you can stroll to with your dog for a treat! 


The weather for travel in this area is usually cooperative in summer with sunny weather and warm temperatures, although thunderstorms are always a possibility. You don't want to get caught in a torrential downpour or thunderstorm with your pup. Winters are cold and snowy and pedestrians traveling the area will need warm outerwear and footwear. Even your dog may benefit from a coat and booties!

What is the terrain like in Downtown Oak Park?

Like much of the Chicago area, Oak Park is flat and it is easy to get around with your pooch as there are no steep climbs while walking. The south side of the downtown area has train tracks and should be avoided when walking with your dog. Harlem Avenue borders the area on the west and there is a high school located on the eastern end of the district with spacious grounds and sports fields. Most commercial and residential buildings in the area are low rise and there are many historic buildings in the area including the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway!  


Commercial corridors do not have a lot of landscaping, however, residential areas on the north side consist of low rise apartments and condominiums with beautifully landscaped grounds. Buildings have unique architecture specific to the period they were developed in, and along with huge shade trees, the area is beautiful and interesting for walking with your dog.

How many greenways are there in Downtown Oak Park?

Austin Gardens is located near the downtown business district, tucked away in the residential district to the north. This woodland oasis has just over three and a half acres of green space.  An environmental education center is located here as well as an outdoor ice rink. Residents can enjoy the park with their dog on a leash. 

Scoville Park is home to the Horse Show Fountain, a war memorial, and an open area that hosts outdoor concerts in the summer. There is also a playground and tennis courts located in the park. A paved walking path allows access to the park's natural areas and is a shady greenway on a hot summer day.

Just outside the downtown area to the east is the Ridgeland Common Park which features a pool and recreation center. This landscaped property with pedestrian paths is another greenway destination for area residents with pets to enjoy trees and open lawns in Oak Park.
