Formerly known as Avenue M Park, this pawrific playground was renamed to honor community activist Ms. Marlene Wesolek. Ms. Wesolek dedicated her life to bettering the community of Hegewisch by championing programs to rehabilitate juvenile delinquents and reduce vandalism and crime in the neighborhood. Your pooch can tag along with you for your day of park fun, but in keeping with Chicago leash laws, you will need to keep Fido on a lead at all times. This will allow you to stay on the fur-iendly side of the Chicago pawlice, for sure!

The wooftastic playground on the property has swings, slides, and climbing structures. The grass areas are a pawpular spot to kick a ball around or to play a rousing game of tug. If a picnic lunch tops your wish list, plop yourself down on the grounds and enjoy! You can even close your eyes and simply breathe in the fresh air while Fido catches up on his people watching or takes in a few zzzz's of his own. You'll need to bring along a few things from home to make your woofderful day at Wesolek Park complete. Don't forget to pack drinking water, toys, cleanup sacks, and a treat or two!
