The sun is shining, and the birds are singing, and that is your cue to take your puptastic friend for some outdoor time in the city of Chicago, Illinois. And the perfect place to get a bit of fresh air is pup-friendly Rogers Park.
You will find this park in the West Ridge Community of the city. Featuring ample street parking adjacent to this land, you can easily park your car, grab your pup and start exploring! If you are close by, then head over on foot for a bit more exercise!
Take some time to explore the park’s 13 acres with your furry friend in tow. Take a walk on its many winding paths which offer you both someplace to stretch your legs. They are perfect for any pup-ability as they are level and won’t tax your not-so-young pup, and they are wheelchair accessible. Benches provide a must-needed place to relax – pick out one under the shade of the tall trees to get a bit of relief from the hot Chicago summer sun! Let your furever friend roll in the lush grass of the landscaped grounds to expend some pent-up energy during the summer, and the wintertime is always a great time for your puptastic dog to have fun playing in the snow!
The park features a small fieldhouse with restrooms and drinking fountains. There are also outdoor places to get a cool drink which operate during the warm-weather months,just bring a bowl for Fido to use. Pups must remain on leash here as per city ordinance, and be sure to bring clean up bags to keep the park pristine.
Rogers Park is a great place for the community to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Head over there today to offer yourself a break in your regular routine, and to let your pup do what pups do best – have a good time with their human friend!
