Not only are all of this park's eight acres of land dog-furiendly, they've really gone to the doggoes by including a fully fenced 0.16 acre zone where off-leash play is the name of the game! Fido can join you while on his leash in the family-centric portions of Hamlin Park, but he is completely free to roam in the on-premise designated dog zone. Just leave the lead right at the door because this pawpular spot is a play haven where Fido and his best canine buds can show off their best zoomies, roughhouse, and play to their hearts' content! But do remember to bring a lead with you as your pooch must remain leashed when not in the dog play area. The Chicago pawlice do patrol the area on the lookout for canine escape artists.
While the fieldhouse and pool are off limits to pups, there are lots of pawsome outdoor activities to be found at Hamlin Park, including baseball diamonds, a soccer field, a basketball court, tennis courts, and even a wooftastic playground. If an outdoor concert sounds like a trip to paradise, there is also an outdoor assembly area which includes a stage where public concerts and other events are held during the summer months. Fido may join you at any concerts or festivals, but just be sure he doesn't try to join in with a serenade or two of his own!
You won't need to bring a single thing with you to Hamlin Park. There is drinking water provided to keep your pooch well-hydrated, and the dog play zone is also complete with cleanup bags.
Thinking of heading out for a day at Hamlin Park? You won't be disappointed. It's a doggone great place!
