The city of Chicago offers quite a number of things to do each day, but your pawtastic pup might not be as interested in walking down the city’s shop-filled streets as you might be. Instead, why not take them to puptastic Franklin Park to spend some quality outdoor time together?
You will find Franklin Park in the North Lawndale Community of the city of Chicago, Illinois. It comprises 8.4-acres of outdoor fun for you and your furry friend, and was named in honor of Benjamin Franklin. Be sure to take advantage of the free street parking with runs along all sides the park for an easy access to this piece of nature.
Here you and your pup can stroll along the paved paths which connect all the amenities of the park. Lots of green space is located here where pup can enjoy a leisurely walk or a run on an extended leash. Trees are situated throughout the park which offers welcome shade during the humid Chicago summers. Why not sit on the park benches and enjoy watching passersby or the neighborhood children frolicking on the park’s two playgrounds?
Other amenities of Franklin Park include a large, indoor field house which can be rented for events, an outdoor swimming pool, and lots of sports courts and fields. There is also a water spray feature for the kiddos to keep them cool during the summer months. Restroom facilities and drinking fountains are provided, but you may need a bowl for your doggo to use. Also be sure to bring mutt mitts to keep this park pup-friendly for all.
Take a walk or drive to Franklin Park for some great outdoor fun with your furever friend in the heart of the city. You won’t want to head back indoors!
