Trebes Park is a pawsome community park in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago just south of DePaul University. Dominated by a large, luxurious grass field, it also features a playground and community gardens. Thanks to its location and size, it's a hotspot for neighborhood pups whether they like to run or lounge. Expect to meet new four-legged friends here! While simple, the park is lovely and elegant. The Sheffield Neighborhood Association, which maintains Trebes Park, takes particular pride in the park's award-winning gardens.
Trebes Park was established in the 1940s, and more recent renovations have added trees, benches, and an ornamental iron gazebo and prairie-style iron fence. The park is a popular spot for community events, especially in warmer months. Check out the Sheffield Neighborhood Association's website to see when the next concert is scheduled. Any outdoor event in Trebes Park welcomes leashed dogs. In addition to making sure your dog is well-behaved and under your control, always remember to clean up after them. You will need to bring your own waste bags and water, but can dispose of any waste in the trash cans in the park. If you need to take a bathroom break of your own, the park often has a port-a-potty available for use.
The Lincoln Park neighborhood is bustling with dining and shopping options. There are several excellent bakeries right off of the park if you want to stop for a cupcake or a croissant. Make sure to include Trebes Park in your plans if you're looking for a picnic spot on a nice day. After a fun day of munching on treats and making new friends, your pup is sure to go home with a wagging tail!
