“Fun area for pups. There is a water pump and kiddie pools (when I was there) for dogs to play in. A great place to let the pups get out some energy!”

“Great large fenced in place to run. Can get muddy in the rain and our white dog turns a shade of grey during dry conditions. Only concern is no way to separate dogs not as socialized and owners don’t always pay attention to the way their dog is behaving (it’s a dog park what can you expect?). Overall super fun for the doggies..”

Puptown Dog Park, Chicago

“Pup town is great. It is big enough to accommodate maybe 50 dogs. Yet it’s small enough that you don’t have to chase your dog around a huge space when it’s time to go home. There are dog fountains, bowls and a kiddie pool for your pup to cool off with a dip. Dogs and owners are generally really friendly..”

Edgewater Dog Park, Chicago

“This place was beautiful, and huge. I spent a while here and I feel like I didn’t even scratch the surface. I mostly spent my time in Robin Williams Feild reading, but I also strolled around for a while to take on the beautiful landscape. I definitely have to come back to see what else this wonderful place had to offer…”

“I love wiggly field, even when we didn’t have a dog, we would stop and watch the dogs play. It’s not great if you have a smaller senior dog who needs a slower introduction, but if you have a doodle that has lots of energy and is ready to run with some rowdy dogs, he/she will wear themselves out here. People are generally watchful of their dogs. Please pick up after your dog, keep wiggly field fun for all the pups!….”
