Description
Looking for the perfect spot to take Fido and the fam for a day of fun? Plan a trip to Barrett Park! Located in the quiet neighborhood of Pilsen on Chicago's famous Lower West Side, this pawsitively awesome recreational area is worth stopping by for a visit. Barrett Park welcomes your pooch to join you at this pawrific play haven. Just remember that you will need to bring a lead with you and to keep Fido on it at all times, as Chicago observes strict leash laws. Staying on the furiendly side of the local paw patrol is always  a good idea!


This woofderful park was originally founded in 1900, and at that time bore the name of Dr. Walter Christopher, a beloved Chicago-area pediatrician. In 1928, the park was renamed Barrett Park to honor local lawyer and Republican party member Mr. Charles V. Barrett. At 0.76 acres of property, this park is small in size, but big on personality. There are lots of doggone amazing things to be found here, with something to suit each member of the family.

Barrett Park is home to a pawpular playground which features slides, climbing structures, and swings. It is important to note that while your pooch is permitted at Barrett Park, the playground area is strictly off-limits to pupperonis. This furrifc park also offers both basketball courts and a soccer field. There is even a large grassy area which is suitable for picnicking, a rousing game of fetch, or even just a spot to cop a squat and people watch; all with your best canine pal along for the ride. Limited bench-style seating is also provided, giving you a terrierific view of the grounds. You'll need to be sure to bring bottled water and some cleanup bags with you.

One of Barrett Park's most wooftastic features is a colorful mural which was handpainted by students in the After School Matters program. It provides a barking great backdrop for family photos to commemorate your pawrific day of adventure. 

If you're looking for a pawsome spot to explore, consider a visit to Barrett Park. It's a woofderful place for a visit!
