Orr Park is a school/park complex located on the West Side of Chicago that is a great environment to take your pooch for a day out. Orr Academy High School and an adjacent recreational building (with restrooms) are on one end of the park, while the rest of the area is surrounded by mostly green space. If you bring your pooch to this park, just make sure that you keep them on a ten-foot leash and always within your immediate control.
The setting of this park is quite unique for most people and their pups because of the calm, yet full of life atmosphere created by a several sporting facilities and the people they attract. The facilities are on sizeable open land, bordered by trees and covered mostly by grass. The park includes a tennis court, a basketball court, and facilities for field and track events, including a straight-away running track. You and your furry bestie will definitely have lots to do, whether you decide to walk or play, or watch others have fun. There are several benches scattered all over the park for you to take a rest.
Since the park shares the same space as the school, it is a good idea to keep your doggo away from the school area, and with plenty of space available, your pup will have lots to explore! Take a stroll on the grass, or just take some time to let your dog play. Also, since the park has lots of grass all around, you can easily choose a spot to have a picnic with your furry buddy. Be sure to bring water and clean up bags, and pick up after your pooch.
