Pulaski Park is located just west of the north branch of the Chicago River, in the West Town Community Area of Chicago. The park is just under 4 acres, and features some lovely greenery and recreational activities for all in the family to enjoy, including the family dog. Pulaski Park is named after a Polish soldier who fought in the American Revolutionary War, and the park, along with the fieldhouse, are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. So grab your canine companion, and come check out this charming and historic park!
Entrances to the park can be found along all four sides of this rectangular park, but you’ll need to find street parking. Parking can be tricky, so if possible, why not walk to the park? Your doggo will thank you for it! Once you arrive you’ll see that the indoor amenities are plentiful, including an auditorium, two gynmaniums, a kitchen, multipurpose meeting rooms, and restrooms. Seeing as only service dogs are allowed inside, you and your best pal are no doubt more interested in the outdoor features! There are paved pathways, and big open athletic fields where your pupper is welcome to sniff and play as long as there are no sports in progress.
