Description
Adventure lovers, there's a pawsome place in town that you won't want to miss! Stop by Gross Park today for a pawsitively awesome day of fun. This Lincoln Square area recreational haven offers people and their pooches the best in indoor and outdoor activities in the Chicago region. A property originally purchased for use by the Department of Sewers, it was later turned into a playground and underwent several name changes over the years, including Washtenaw Playlot and Lawrence Playlot. In 1952, this furrific play space was renamed Gross Park to pay homage to Mr. Theodore A. Gross, a park developer as well as the Superintendent of Playgrounds. 


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!
