Description
When you enter the Washington Heights community on the southside of Chicago, you'll enter a new part of the city that boasts a friendly and quiet neighborhood that's pretty different from the loud and bustling area of downtown Chicago. No matter where you go in the community, you'll find plenty of shade and places to explore, but nothing beats the loveliness of playing in Robichaux Park, a 13.3-acre park that has lots of grass, open space, and shade for park goers.


Bordered by rows of residential homes on the west and train tracks on the east, the narrow park has parking along the street of Eggleston Avenue right next to the park, and at a parking lot right in the center of the park. The most room is offered at the north end of the park, where acres of open space are available among the recreational fields. There are two baseball fields and a soccer field, nestled right next to a thick line of trees that separate the tracks from the park, although you'll still be able to hear trains running by in the afternoon.

Heading further south into the park along the narrow paved path that surrounds the interior, you'll notice basketball courts next to the trees, right before finding the fieldhouse next to the parking area. This is where you'll find public restrooms, water fountains, and trash bins to use to clean up after Fido. Do be sure to bring clean up bags though, as none are provided.

The southern part of the park is the most shaded, with trees surrounding all edges of the park and covering the rest of the trails that run past swingsets, picnic tables, a playground, and a large open field that's perfect for running around and playing some fetch with your pup.

The narrow park is open and wide, offering the option to socialize, or go off on your own to play with Fido. You'll be sure to get plenty of exercise with Fido at Robichaux Park.
