North Boundary Park is a little sliver of land that brightens up the community near Touhy Avenue. It used to have the plain name of Park Number 557. Furtunately, the neighborhood group called North Boundary Home Owners League requested its name be changed. Leash up your pup and head over to this pawsome park!
North Boundary Park is a linear space that only stretches 1.6 acres. It runs parallel to Kedzie Avenue and is on the east side of the North Shore Channel of the Chicago River. Even though you could probably throw your dog’s ball from one side of the park to the other, it’s still a furrific spot to visit.
Take a break from walking on the regular old city sidewalk, and wander
down the park’s paved walkway. It winds
through the park and is surrounded by nice patches of grass. Let your pup’s
nose be the guide as you wander around the lawn. There are plenty of trees and
shrubs that they’ll want to check out. When the weather changes, your pal will love
walking through the colorful fall leaves.
The park has a couple benches and street lamps. If your dog needs to rest their paws, stop for a minute and enjoy some people watching. You’ll also find some trash cans. Since this is such a small park, it’s super important to keep the limited space free of doggy debris. Bring a couple clean up bags and promptly pick up after your doggo. And even though they probably won’t get tuckered out by their walk in North Boundary Park, your pooch will be most appreciative if you bring some water along.
Whether you and your pup stop
by North Boundary Park for a visit, or are just passing through during your
regular walk, it will make your furry friend’s tail wag!
