There’s a new dog park at Adams & Sangamon in the West Loop .
It’s a small park, but an interesting space, located on the west side of Bartelme park on Sangamon street:
Interesting that there’s no ‘pea gravel’ in the park, only the different concrete levels and several patches of artificial dog turf.
There’s a very nice self-filling water fountain located at the center of the park (it’s obscured by the tree at the front of this picture).
No poo bag dispensers yet. And there’s only one entrance, on the sidewalk at the far end in this picture.
Will the dogs get used to the space? Will they take to the artificial dog grass? Will they be happy fetching in the triangular layout?
The concrete levels do provide some interesting sitting space for the humans.
And, you can really tell it’s a dog friendly area – according to the Chicago Park District – because if you put a huge chain on your dog, then you can let her smell the flowers!
