Needing a break from your daily schedule? Then pack up your pup and head to Independence Park in the city of Chicago, Illinois, for some much-needed outdoor time together. The park is just what you need to let your pup stretch his legs and add some fun to his day!
Located in the Old Irving Park neighborhood, you can park your car anywhere along the surrounding streets that encircle the park. All you will need is your pup’s leash to begin your day together.
The park is full of open green space where you and your pup can take a walk. There are beautiful iron fences which encircle the park and run through it, making a lovely addition to your view. Stroll down the paved paths throughout, while your pup enjoys a bit of fresh air. These are perfect for elderly pups as they are level and offer a solid footing. There are lots of trees where you can sit and relax under on the provided park benches that dot the landscaped grounds, or throw down a blanket and share a snack with your furry friend in this picturesque park.
Other outdoor amenities the park offers include sports courts, baseball fields and a kiddie playground. There is also a fieldhouse which has an indoor pool, fitness center and gym for human residents to enjoy.
Be sure to keep your pawtastic pup on leash during your visit. Be sure to bring bags and clean up after them to keep this park pup-friendly. Restrooms can be found in the field house, and outdoor drinking fountains operate during the warm months.
Independence Park is just what you and your furever friend need to get out of the house and into a bit of nature.
