Would it be possible to put turf over the pavement in Grant Bark Park? If so, how much do we need to raise? ... See MoreSee Less

We are looking into this. We don't know how much it would cost yet. But we are trying to organize an initiative to gain support for this based particularly on the likely increase in dog owners in the new buildings at the south end of Grant Park that should occur over the next couple of years. We presented the idea at a Chicago Park District 'court-meeting' last year (officials sit at a table at the front of a room; poor supplicants are allowed two minutes to present their concerns) and were pretty much blown off. However, we're going to be circulating our ideas over the next year and have some support from a group trying to regain community control over Grant Park. We will definitely need our own community involvement (bodies, energy, ideas) in order to move it forward!

Filled the bag dispensers at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park and put up new signs with our number to let us know when they need filling!

And thanks for the kind on-the-spot $20 donation from a park user!

We need your help!

Thank you for posting this. This is incredibly sad. ❤️ South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative (SLDogPAC) will be taking steps to make sure that this sign stays up.Save another dog’s life by ensuring one gate is always closed before entering and exiting the park. Would hate for anyone else to have to endure what my husband and I are going through after the tragic loss of our baby. ... See MoreSee Less

I would also like to reiterate that conversations are NOT to be had while standing in either doorway. I witnessed this whole horrible incident that happened due to a dog owner standing for an extended period of time propping open the inside gate while having a conversation.

Didn’t know where to post, but can we organize a volunteer cleaning day? Just people and no dogs? There is residual poo and diarrhea that would be good to clean out, particularly since 1000 South Clark and Pooch Club just notified people of giardia. Or pitch in to pay for a power-washing?

Inattentive owners are why I had to stop going to the park too. Either it was gate related issues or actually watching their dogs so they don’t get into fights.

I took my dog there twice and stopped going. I have to agree that the atmosphere is not great due to some owners who don’t pay attention and due to some dogs who seem to have no training or social skills. It is such a shame because it is a great park.

I am so sorry for the loss of your doggie people should use the dog park with their pets with the same caution we use playgrounds with our children. I would hope flyer with precautions and guidelines are being spread throughout the community. I know this is painful as I have lost a puppy but please share with the Park District PAC Facebook page so that all dog park will use this as a warning or at least a cautionary tale. My sympathies to you.

That's infuriating. IIRC, signs are prominently posted stating that this should be done, but failing that, a little common sense would have prevented this tragedy.

Someone opened both gates once and my dog got out too. People are horrible.

I’m so sorry and I had this problem multiple times at that park. Sadly we stopped going as a result.

Horrible. Sorry for ur loss. With u in spirit

I am so sorry for your loss.

By saying the dog costume contest and parade is after the children’s, you confused many people who showed up at like 6:45-7 and were told they couldn’t compete in the contest. Please have a clear time frame next year and stick to it. We had some disappointed pups!

Matthew - take a bit to walk before out meeting tonight? 🧜‍♀️

Micah Dorfman 1 hour!!

Should make a puppy cheer station on the route instead to cheer on runners!

  1. Bill, we forwarded your comment to the Chicago Park District for advice and their recommendation is yes – call 911.

    First line is to call 911 if you feel threatened. We have a major issue with dogs off leash at this park. Security and myself deal with this ongoing issue. I will notify our CPD security but they should call 911 immediately.

    Note that Roosevelt Park is not a city-sanctioned off-leash dog area!

  2. I was confronted by a thug in the dog park at Roosevelt Road today. Muscle bound thug, his dogs had nothing to do with him. We were talking, at his invitation, about American football, and how the players of that sport do or do not deserve medical payments for their injuries on the field. I insist they do and I am entitled to my opinion. He insists I have no right to an opinion since he played for Penn State.

    He became very threatening to me with his size and when that didn’t work he insulted my wife. I saw this quickly escalating situation was going to end in violence, so we left.

    I restrained myself, and I wonder if there is a way of banning someone from the park. This man was clearly looking for a fight. Should I call the police?
