Is your pooch using their big brown puppy dog eyes to beg for a walk? You may as well give in and treat them to an afternoon stroll in Senka Park. Located in the Chicago Lawn Community, this furrific green space was once an old rail yard. Furtunately, the land was purchased from the Grand Trunk Western Railroad and a pawsome park was created.
Senka Park shares its grounds with Solorio Academy High
School. In fact, the park’s aquatic programs are held in the high school’s
indoor pool. There’s also a fieldhouse. For those who prefer outside
activities, the park has plenty to do. Two legged visitors can take advantage
of the ball diamonds, basketball courts, soccer fields, and playground.
Even though your four legged friend isn’t allowed in the
buildings, they’ll still have a furrific time at Senka Park. This place has a
pawsome walking path that your pal will be anxious to try out. Take a couple
laps around the main loop so they can get their four legs moving. There are some
off shoot trails and a smaller loop. To keep things interesting, let your pooch
be the guide and create their own route.
There is more than enough lawn space for your doggo to
check out. If there are no games in play, they can romp around the ball fields,
on leash, of course. In the southeast corner of the park, you’ll find a nice
patch of grass for them to roam around. Mature trees provide much welcomed
shade and a place for your pup to leave their mark.
While you are out and about in the park, be sure to have
a couple clean up bags and pick up after your pooch. Also, it’s a good idea to
bring some water, just in case Fido gets thirsty. Your pal will agree, an afternoon is Senka
Park is time well spent!
