Gross Park is open to both people and their pooches. Park officials do ask that you keep your main canine squeeze on a lead at all times to keep the local pawlice at bay. Your fave pooch is welcome to join you for some park fun everywhere but the fieldhouse.
Gross Park offers multiple instructional programs for sports enthusiasts including soccer and basketball. If you fancy a leisurely stroll around the grounds, grab Fido's leash and head out for a "look-see." The grass areas offer the pawrfect location for a picnic lunch or even just to people watch. Feeling like getting in a little exercise? There are basketball courts and a soccer field where you can play a little b-ball or kick a soccer ball around for fun.
Gross Park also offers a playground for the kiddies to enjoy and a furrific sandbox where Fido can practice digging a hole to China should he so desire. When you pack your bag of park "must-haves," don't forget some bottled water and cleanup bags!
For a doggone great time at a tranquil Chicago spot, plan a visit to Gross Park. You'll be barking glad you did!
