When Fido is looking to go outside, and you are in need of a break as well, a great place to enjoy some outdoor time in the city of Chicago, Illinois, is Russell Square Park. Exercise is an important part of every day, so head on out with your furry friend to have some fun together.
This lovely park is situated in the South Chicago neighborhood of the city and offers plenty of on-street parking for all. Park your car and you and your pup are ready for an adventure without ever having to leave the city!
With almost 12 acres of ground to cover, you will have plenty to see and plenty to do. Your pawtastic pup will love taking a stroll on the dedicated walking trail which meanders throughout the park amid open grassy areas as well as under the shade of the many mature trees. Offer them a break in the action by sitting on one of the numerous park benches scattered along the trail or many paths which are found in the park, or take a blanket to spread out under a tall tree. Here you can relax and unwind a bit before heading back to your regular routine.
Before leaving, be sure to check out all that Russell Square Park has to offer including a large fieldhouse which accommodates a workout gym, fitness center and community gathering rooms. Restrooms can be found here as well. A swimming pool and sports fields and courts round out the outside amenities. You and Fido can grab a cool drink of water from the water fountains which operate during the summer months. Be sure to keep your pup on leash during your visit, and clean up after them with your own bags is a must.
Russell Square Park offers residents and visitors a place to connect to nature in the midst of a large, metropolitan area.
