When your Highland Park pup gets the winter blues, head to the Highland Park Golf Learning Center Dog Park! Between December and March, depending on the weather, the golf center closes for golfers and opens its doors to neighborhood doggoes.
At the Highland Park Golf Learning Center, your dog can romp and play in off leash freedom in two indoor, fenced in dog runs. One run is set aside for pups 25 pounds or less, while the other is for bigger dogs. With enough area to tire out your restless dog, this pupperdise is the pawfect way to provide your dog with some needed canine socialization when its too cold to be outside. And with clean-up bags and trash cans on site, its easy to pick up whatever your pup lays down and help keep this indoor park pristine.
To access the park, you'll need to get a membership. Along with a filled out registration form which can be found online or at the Heller Nature Center, you will need to provide current City of Highland Park rabies tag and license tag numbers, and a picture your dog by email, fax or in person. Your dog should also be fully immunized. Membership fees are $50 for one dog, and $25 for each additional dog for residents, and lasts for one year. The membership will also grant access to the Debbie Gottlieb Beitler Dog Park at Larry Fink Memorial Park which is open year round. Non-resident fees are $150 for the first dog, and $75 for additional pups. Once you meet all the criteria, you'll be issued a picture permit, a keyfob and a parking sticker which you will need for both dog parks.
The indoor park is open from dawn to dusk every day during winter months. Your dog must wear their collar with tags when visiting the park at all times. A maximum of two dogs are allowed per owner per visit. Please keep all food out of the park, but do bring water and a bowl for your thirsty pup.
