South Side Dog Park Discussion

Still want a South Side dog park? Please come talk to the Chicago Park District and the Parks Foundation about moving forward with a dog park at Rainbow Beach Park. We are first on the agenda that day so come early to help make the point that the South Side deserves dog areas too!

Toni RojasI attended the meeting at the So Shore Country Club today. I attended, as a resident of the south side, to show my support for a DFA at Rocky Ledge beach. The discussion revealed that the South Shore Dog Beach committee has the park supervisor's blessing, the support of the community PAC and multiple residents voices their support of a DFA in the area. Marion Brown and Joan, members of the So Shore Dog Beach committee, discussed the positive aspects of a DFA to a community. The presentation was well done with facts as to the positive impact of a DFA to a community. Additionally, the committee provided a map with the locations of existing DFAs in Chicago. The inequity of south side vs. north side dog parks is very apparent. We are definitely lacking DFAs on the south side where our dogs can be off leash in a safe and secure area. Exercising and socializing your dog = a happy, better behaved pup at home! therefore a happier pup parent. I can tell you, from personal experience, that my pups take a long nap after spending an hour at the dog park! I hope that the So Shore Dog Beach committee is successful in their goal of getting CPD approval for a DFA at Rocky Ledge beach - it is a beautiful location in an underutilized area of Rainbow Beach.....a perfect location! My pups and I would love it!

  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?
