Hyde Park is probably one of the green neighbourhoods of the southeastern Chicago area. Not only does it offer lots of green spaces and shade from tall oak trees, but it also offers not-so-busy streets. Matching the neighbourhood's easygoing space, Sycamore Park is a relaxing place to go out for a walk alone or with your four-legged best friend.
Sycamore Park is a small residential park, primarily used for walking and playing in the nice and new playground, and offers some great opportunities for other activities for you and your dog. The park has one entrance on the west side of the park and is otherwise completely fenced-in, with off-street parking on the road that runs next to the park. A small sidewalk allows for entrance into the park, and from there, you and Fido will first see a concrete loop.
This path is actually about 6-feet wide, although its short as it only loops around the playground. It is still friendly for leashed pups to walk on, and after a couple of loops, you and Fido will be sure to get a bit of a workout. There are large trees in the park that create plenty of shade, especially over a concrete sitting area with benches and trash bins. There's a water fountain at the south point of the playground, and along the outer edges of the park, there is green grass and open space. There is enough space to run and play a quick game of fetch with your pup.
Although space is limited, this park still has a lot of great opportunities for you and Fido to enjoy yourselves while outside, providing a safe and dog-friendly space to enjoy some green space.
