It’s time to take your furry friend out for a walk, and what better place to visit than Mann Park in the city of Chicago, Illinois? They will welcome the exercise and you can enjoy a break in your regular routine.
Head to the Hegewisch Community where this park is located. Either grab some on-street parking or find a spot at the on-site lot.
Almost 20 acres of land is at your disposable, so why not begin with a walk on the paved paths that meander throughout the park? You can enjoy the landscaped grounds for a picturesque visit, but your furry friend will most likely just like to roll in the lush grass! Check out one of the popular features of the park while you are wandering around - a community garden, called the Harvest Garden, nestled within the boundaries of this land. You can see lots of veggies growing which the area residents have planted each year! It is surrounded by fencing, so your pup won’t be tempted to sneak a bite! Make sure to take some time to relax on the park benches scattered throughout under the shade of the mature trees or bring a picnic to share.
Other amenities include a fieldhouse with two gyms, a swimming pool and woodshop. Outdoors, you will find a whopping seven sports fields, a playground for the kiddos and other sports courts. And no park would be complete without a spray pool for those hot summer days. Restrooms are inside, and seasonal drinking fountains are outside for your convenience. Please bring bags to clean up after your pup, and keep them on leash.
What more could you need in your day than a pup and a park? Head to Mann Park today and enjoy an outing with your furever friend!
