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.

Water at Fred Anderson Park: as many of you have noticed, although the drinking fountains are off (and will remain so, for health and safety) the spigots inside them are accessible and on. Today we attached hoses to those spigots in both the small and large dog areas. So fill up those pools and spray your water-crazy dog buddies!

We also filled up the bag dispensers today. Please let us know (text, call, write) when they are empty!

The CPD says that they will not turn on the water features. We are still working on that.

Every time we walk by people are not social distancing in the park it’s more of a social hour for humans water is not going to help that there will juts be too many people in a small area...and why would the CPD be responsible for turning on the water?

Pauly Telz Jimmy yay they're open!

Chicago Park District - today:

"Update. Unfortunately as for now there is no plan to turn on the water features or even decorative fountains in the parks."

Our dogs need to cool down in this hot weather!

WHY?!

No reason given. This is CPD bureaucracy at work, with layers of responsibility so that our CPD contact can say that THEY didn't make the call. We're trying.

Will the water at our DFAs be turned on soon?

We've been in touch with the Chicago Park District and the answer is:

Probably not, for the time being!

The CPD position (as of 5.26.20) is that they need to take precautions so that disease "can not be transmitted to patrons and pets".

We agree with you - our dogs need water in this heat!

We're working along with the Grant Park Advisory Council to try to get the water features at the DFAs turned on!

I’m looking to get some help in identifying or reaching a dog owner whose dog attacked my dog in the Grant Park dog “bark” park on 12/20/19 around 2:30 pm. Unfortunately, I didn’t think at the time to get the owner’s picture or dog’s picture- it all happened so fast.

The dog was tall and large, mixed breed, I believe light brown and white colors. The owner was a middle aged Caucasian male with light brown or dark blond hair, stated his name was “Sean”. He immediately left after the attack, and I believe he gave me a fake phone number when I ran after him to confront him after making sure my dog was stable.

Pictures attached of my puppy’s injuries. Laceration and puncture to the face and inside of her right upper jaw, puncture to her left facial bone so now she gets air under the skin of her snout when she exhales through her nose. Not to mention various other scrapes and cuts to her paw pads, legs, etc.

If anyone knows this person or was there that day and can provide more info, please contact me at (314) 960-4762. Thank you

  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?
