Filled the white bag dispensers at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park today.

We've switched to roll bags for the time being; it seems that our previous vendor dogpoopbags.com is no longer active. Let us know how you like them - we'll be trying out various types of roll bags in the coming months...

And please remember to join the SLDogPAC (membership is only $40) at southloopdogpac.org/join so that we can keep buying bags!

Reposting from South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative (SLDogPAC) -

Bad news! The Chicago Park District has NO update about the WATER FEATURES at the Fred Anderson Park Dog Park - After a month of back-and-forth all we've gotten from the Park Supervisor is "We have to wait for the plumbers to return and fix the mechanisms once the parts come in." But she doesn't know what is broken, how long the parts will take, or when it will be done. "Will try to have it moved up on the priority list but of course can't make any guarantees."

Also finally put away the two hoses at Fred - if you donated the nice hose that was in the small dog area, it's stored safely in the storage bin for the season!

Thanks to everyone for picking up poo and keeping things clean!

Piles of leaves at Grant Bark Park?

We've confirmed with the office at the Chicago Park District Maintenance Building next to the park - If you're in the mood to help clean up GBP and you want to start sweeping up piles of leaves - Yes, it's OK to dump them in the trash bins when you're done, the park district guys will take care of it!

Thanks for your help keeping our parks clean!

There sure is a LOT of poo out there waiting to be picked up...

Remember, bring your own bags please. Use the dispenser bags when you really need them!

And if you see a fellow dog lover looking around sheepishly... offer them one of yours! 🙂

You may have noticed the mess at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park

For the last few weeks we've been trying to contact the Park Supervisor about the flooding at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park.

We've been sending them the pictures some of you sent us (thank you!).

Nothing happened...

Finally, today after another email and a frantic message from a park user, the Supervisor decided to 'expedite' the work order!

She tells us "Someone will be out tomorrow morning."

Yay?

In each of the SLDogPAC parks, the Board has purposefully removed any and all plastic pools from each of our dog parks. As the signs indicate, it is an issue of disease. We have been contacted many times by people whose dogs have gotten sick from the still water.

As dog owners, each member of the Board totally understands that this is not a popular move. Our dogs love those pools, and the SLDogPAC and park visitors have provided pools for our collective enjoyment. The challenge is that pups urinate or leave feces in the pools, which can contain parasites like Giardia (read up on it - it's no fun).

It's hot out there, and it is important to have water available on these hot days for our pups, which is why we are so pleased that the Chicago Park District has finally turned on the water features at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park. There is less risk of exposure when the water is moving. We waited to remove the pools until CPD turned on the water features this summer. Hopefully, this move will see a decrease in the spread of disease.

If you want to make a difference and get involved. Join the SLDogPAC!

Hi, I was wondering if the water fountains at Fred Anderson dog park can be turned on easily? It’s super hot and semi just think it’d be fun and cool for the dogs to play with that. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Amy, We've been in contact with the Chicago Park District supervisor about this multiple times and have been getting nowhere - they claim there's a "policy" and it

's out of their hands. We'll keep trying.

You might want to reach out the alderman, Pat Dowell, ward03@cityofchicago.org to see if she can help. There more people raise the issue, the faster we'll get it done. Thanks!

Park District Supervisor informed us today that the water feature will be/is turned on at Fred Anderson DFA

Fixed the drainage, too!

Support our friends at Lakeview Dog Park!We have been making progress to bring a new dog park to Lakeview. We have good news to report and a simple request of everyone reading this…

First, the good news!

Our community has passed the 2,500-member mark thanks to many of you who have been encouraging friends and neighbors to sign our online petition and write letters of support to local political leaders.

We want to build on this momentum and have raised our goal to 3000 people to sign.

Here’s how you can help.

(1) Cut out the “card” shown here.
(2) Take them on walks with your dog.
(3) Share them with friends and neighbors.
(4) Ask them to sign our petition if they haven’t already.
There’s even a QR Code for those who prefer “contactless” access to the petition via their cell phones. So you can encourage them to sign up right on the spot!

Meanwhile, we continue to work on final siting. As many know, the Chicago Park District approved a site near Briar and (inner) Lake Shore Drive. But neighbors to that site suggested other locations, including our original site at Barry and (inner) Lake Shore Drive, might be more amenable.

Getting agreement on a site is critical to the next step in our process: preparing design and cost options. We’ll report more on that in a future report. Meanwhile, keep encouraging friends and neighbors to get behind us. And thank you for your continuing support.

  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?
