The area
Address
Neighborhood: Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.

Excellent spot to sit back and let your dog play. Especially exciting for dogs who like to do agility stations (mine doesn't). Cons: there is no shade and the surface of the park is materials so no grassy options. Pro: there are places for humans to sit and watch and even a small library of books to look at while the pooch plays. Note well: be prepared for a walk since the park is a long way from available parking. Paid parking.

Wonderful community-run park with agility options, cooling pools and mist stations, and first aide! Plus the ability to section off half of the park if you have dogs with mismatched temperament. I have never been to a better dog park in the city of Chicago. Absolutely worth the trip to Hyde Park if you're not from the neighborhood

This was such a diamond in the Ruff! Thanks to the volunteers that keep this fun packed dog park safe, entertaining for the dogs and their humans - even had a DJ with some great music for all to enjoy.

Was looking for a dog park that had structure, not the run-of-the-mill open area park. Well we found it. This dog park had fun obstacles for the dogs, safety items and lots of bags to help keep it clean.

A Must Go!

Great, secured area for dogs, ideal for training or just playground and free!!! You just have to take a good care of the place because it only works thanks to everyone participating at cleaning. Really nice

The guy in charge makes sure you know everything in order for your pup to have the best play time including first aid, temperament separation, and even some history! Its worth the visit! I will DEFINITELY be back with my Dussé. She LOVED everything and everyone there!

Had our first visit here today- our 1 yr old Carin Terrier has had limit ability to socialize up until today- he had an absolute ball. The park is so much fun for dogs, but is great for the owners. Separated areas if your dog needs time out, lots of toys, clean (on an old tennis court so no muddy mess), lots of agility games. Great parking and totally FREE!

Great park with so many things for the dogs to stay entertained with. Our dog had a blast! All different kinds of dogs there. Isolated with free parking if you just keep driving by.
