Chicago may not seem like the most dog furiendly place with all the high-rises and businesses, but right here in the city, you will find some of the most pawpular trails and parks that love our four-legged friends as much as we do. The Norwood Circle Park Trail starts at Norwood Park on North Neva Avenue and continues along the outside of the Old Norwood Park Historical Area with houses that date back to 1880.
You and your canine kid will meander past several parks and green spaces, as well as large groups of houses and other buildings like the Taft High School, Norwood Park Train Station, the picturesque neighborhood of North West Circle and North East Circle Avenues, and the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House, which is the home of the Norwood Park Historical Society. Norwood Park has three acres of wooded and grassy land with some pawesome places to sit and enjoy the view or have a bite to eat.
While traveling along this five-mile walking path, you and Fido will likely see plenty of friendly neighbors and children, as well as others walking their dogs if the weather is good. You can also expect to come across some amazingly colorful and vibrant patches of wildflowers, and even some planted gardens that are cared for by the city and the residents of the town.
Be sure that you and your furry buddy have enough water, and bring along some plastic baggies to clean up after your pupster along the way. The Norwood Circle Park Trail is a furrific walk that you and Fido will love, and you can learn some history along the way about the fabulous city of Chicago.
