This is funny.... but unfortunately true. Keep doing your best to pick up what your pups leave, and if you find another one, be a 'poo angel' and pick it up, too, so you or your dog doesn't step in in later πŸ™‚

Be careful out there, dog lovers! πŸ˜€

South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative (SLDogPAC)We agree! And as a regular user of Grant Bark Park you probably already know about the lengthy closures during Lollapalooza while they use the area north of it for golf cart staging and communications towers and trailers, and use our water fountain as their water source. We have tried to appeal to event organizers in the past to give a financial gift to help with maintenance and improvements of Grant Bark Park, but were only successful once. At the time Lollapalooza organizers said "Lolla loves Dogs", so now, we're not sure if they love dogs anymore...

Filled the bag dispensers at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park today. Also put up some annoying 'reminder' signage - your feedback (hate 'em, love 'em, they're stupid, whatever!) is welcome. We're responding to reports of people not understanding that the park is not maintained by anyone but the dog community that uses it, which means, among other things, 'pick up your poo!' πŸ™‚ Guessing our fans on Facebook know this already, but there seems to be a cohort who don't. πŸ™ ...

Harold GordonThank you volunteers of SLDogPAC. Fred Anderson is such a splendid place for our pups. It is a shame so many can't pick up after their own. Instead of sitting on the sidelines glued to their screens, they should be enjoying their dogs and the park. Others are just plain stupid.

Bernadette CoppolaThanks for restocking and for the reminders. I like to give some people the benefit of doubt in the small dog area that sometimes they just don't see their dog poo - I'll see a dog go but the owner is on the other side. Usually helps to point it out to the owner.

Amy WilkSad I'm no longer in Chicago, but I had no problem calling people out who weren't paying attention to their dog. Big thanks to the sldpac for all the work you do!

We have received reports that the water is not working in the Big Dog Area at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park and have notified the CPD Park Supervisor.

Thanks for letting us know!

OK, eight hundred bags at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park today, and four hundred bags at Coliseum Park Dog Run!
So, that's good. Thanks for letting us know!

We're also hearing complaints about people leaving their dog poos behind, apparently expecting that the 'dog park janitorial service' will pick up after them. Seriously? WTF?

Any thoughts on this?

  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?
