The northern side of Chicago is probably the most pretty part of the city, with large forests, rows of quiet residential homes, and views of Lake Michigan. Norwood Park East is especially a quiet neighborhood and features the dog-friendly Pleasant Point Park.
The park itself is only of medium size, but is popular thanks to its amazing playground for kids and numerous amenities that makes going to the park great. It was once called Imlay Park and is surrounded by residential homes and a large number of trees that provide shade and privacy. Parking is on the road next to the park, with a sidewalk that covers the east and north edges of the park. That sidewalk curves inward at the top, encompassing the playgrounds for kids. Although the playground is ideal for kids, the southern portion of the park is perfect for pups.
With nearly an acre and half of the open space, the well-maintained grass makes a great terrain to play and run around on, whether socializing with other pups or just playing fetch. Besides a large amount of open space to play in, there are trees with shade, picnic tables, benches, water fountains, and trash bins to use, although you will have to bring your own clean-up bags to pick up after Fido. There are spray nozzles that are open to everyone in the summer which can be used to cool off or to clean your pup up and get the mud off their paws after playing. Keeping your pup leashed is required here.
With numerous features that are perfect for you and Fido, this park is a great choice to head to for an afternoon adventure with your best furry pal.
