There is one pawsitively awesome thing that sets Coliseum Park apart from other canine fur-iendly Chicago hotspots. It has a dog run! Though the play space itself is quite narrow and consists of only 0.65 acres of property, pooches of all shapes and sizes can join the pawrty completely off-lead! Yes, that's right; your doggo can roughhouse, frolic, and play to his heart's content without the need for a leash in the one on-premise enclosure at Coliseum Park. Drinking water is provided to help keep your pooch from getting parched, and there are also cleanup sacks available on the premises for pawblic use.
But the fun doesn't stop when Fido steps outside of the wooftastic off-leash play zone, he is welcome and wanted in the other areas of Coliseum Park though off-leash activity is not permitted here. You will find lots of lush grass spaces suitable for picnicking, games of fetch, or just doing some people watching. There is also a pawrific playground and some doggone stunning gardens to explore.
A permit is required to enter the dog play area. The cost is $5 per year. However, there is no fee required to simply enjoy the pawblic park sections of Coliseum Park. Be sure to visit the your favorite doggy dog-tor to be certain your pooch is up to date on all vaccinations as proof of immunization is required to join the playtime in the off-leash area.
For a day of fun at a play space that's got it all, you won't want to miss a trip to Coliseum Park. It's terrierific!
