How can you say no to your furever friend who is wanting to be taken for a walk? Since that is not so easy to do, why not pack up your pup and head to Dunham Park in the bustling city of Chicago, Illinois, for some great fun and well-deserved fresh air.
Dunham Park is located in the Portage Park community of the city where you will find on-street parking along any of the side streets! Make sure to grab their leash and you are ready to enjoy some time in the great outdoors!
There is plenty for you and your pawtastic pup to do on these 14 acres of land. It will seem like you are far away from the city without leaving the area! Lots of open, grassy sections of the park offer you and your pup a place to take a walk and let them romp on an extended leash! There are paved paths within the park to meander along, and you can also walk around the entire perimeter on the adjacent sidewalks. These are all perfectly suited for any pup-ability as they are level and offer a smooth footing. There are plenty of park benches which will do your feet good, so relax and take in all the sights. Don’t forget to bring a blanket to place under the shade trees for some much-needed relief from the hot, summer sun.
Other attractions at the park include a children’s playground with a water-spray feature, lots of sports courts, baseball fields, and a fieldhouse which offers community programs, a fitness center and gym. You will find restrooms in the fieldhouse, and drinking fountains operating outdoors during the warm-weather months of the year. Be sure to keep your puptastic friend on leash throughout your visit, and bring mutt mitts to keep this park pup-friendly.
Dunham Park offers you and your best friend some great outdoor time in the city of Chicago.
