Which Dog Park is Right for You?

Edit Module
Which celebrity does your
dog most look like?
Your dog is ...
Your dog is spaced out. What is it thinking about?
What is your dog doing right now?
Do you have kids?
How would your dog respond to “Woof woof woof woof”?
Who do you like better?
Ed Sheeran
Dwayne
Johnson
Timothée
Chalamet
A werewolf, actually
My best friend
Sticking its face out the car window
Pooping with reckless abandon
Swimming pools full of peanut butter
Silently waiting at the door for no apparent reason
Chasing a squirrel and sniffing a butt (yes, at the same time)
Yes
No, thank God
My dog is an Art Institute curator and does not understand this.
“Woof. Woof woof woof.”
My dog
My kid

FRED ANDERSON PARK DOG PARK

It’s open and well lit after dark — perfect for the night-owl pooch. Bonus: separate small- and big-dog enclosures, a multilevel water fountain, and green turf and concrete to keep allergens at a minimum. 1611 S. Wabash Ave., South Loop

SKINNER BARK PARK

This popular park sprawls across nearly half an acre of turf, gravel, and concrete — ideal for the adventurous pup. 1331 W. Adams St., Near West Side

LOGAN SQUARE DOG PARK

With a colorful mural, this real-grass park is a delight for the artistically inclined pup. 2526 N. Western Ave., Logan Square

WIGGLY FIELD

If your dog is a natural socialite, Wiggly Field is bumpin’ with new friends, especially during peak hours (weekday evenings and weekends). There’s also a separate small-dog area, in case your dog doesn’t want big new friends. 2526 N. Western Ave., Logan Square

CLARENDON DOG FRIENDLY AREA

If you want to entertain both your dog and your kid, this spot is right beside kid-approved family fun, like a playground and a park with water features. 2526 N. Western Ave., Logan Square

CHURCHILL DOG PARK

Kiddie pool! Dog toys! Water fountain! This park has lots of options to keep your ADD-vexed pup entertained. 2526 N. Western Ave., Logan Square
