The Lake in the Hills Dog Park requires dog owners to register and pay an annual fee of $40 for residents and $60 for non-residents. Interested dog owners can purchase a membership at the Lake in the Hills Village Hall. But the fee is worth it because this park offers ample space for Skurry to run in a large and natural setting.
The 10-acre park has three spaces. One is for new dogs to adjust to the area, and the other two sections are so there is always one space open during routine maintenance. The park is also open year round, but the water is turned off in the winter, so bring your own during the colder months. This unique dog park also has solar panels that help visibility when it’s getting dark.
There are many shady trees and greenery in this park that will remind doggy owners of hiking in the woods with their furry pal. Past visitors rave about the friendly atmosphere and well-maintained space in this park. This park also stresses the importance of cleaning up after your pup by placing pooper scooper stations around the park with doggy doo bags.
Visitors must heed to the posted rules which include no children under six entering the Lake in the Hills Dog Park, dogs in heat are not allowed, and there is no smoking allowed on the premises. Also, dog owners are responsible for any harm their pooch does to any other dog or person, so your pooch needs to have a decent temperament.
This impressive park even allows visitors to buy a commemorative dog plaque in memory of their late furry friends. Dog owners can view these plaques inside of the park for years to come. If Skurry loves immersion in nature and dog owners are okay with forking up an annual fee, the Lake in the Hills Dog Park in Illinois will have Skurry panting and tuckered out (for a little while).
