Lollapalooza is in violation of the terms of its permit with the Chicago Park District by closing off access to Grant Bark Park on the days before the event.

We have been in touch with the CPD Supervisor for Grant Park about this.

Whether they will be able to correct this today, who knows. But, yeah, GBP is supposed to be open. There will be no access to Grant Bark Park from 8/2-8/5 (Thursday-Sunday).

ATTENTION FRED ANDERSON DOG PARK GOERS!

The owners of the terrain in front of the park, usually used as a parking lot by dog owners, decided to make it a tow zone, and the sign alerting about that is kept in a hidden spot. My car got towed last Friday and I ended up paying a $216 fee.

Please alert everyone that uses this park about this new “borderline racket”. Don’t fall to this trap!!

It's that time of the year again. Many of our pups will be fearful this week as fireworks will be going off everywhere, and all the time. If you don't have a Thundershirt, give this a try. You can use many types of fabric to make this kind of wrap, think about the tightness as you are wrapping them, especially if it is a stretchy material, you want the dog to just feel 'hugged'.

My pups were not complaining at all about the BBQ sauce flavored sidewalks on Wabash. 🍗

Hi South Loop neighbors, I had some friends in town and we spent a few hours today working at the South Loop Dog Parks cleaning up a bit. Looks like someone got to Fred Anderson before we did, but we did haul out about five bags of weeds and other trash from Grant Bark Park & d'Angelo Dog Park.

We swept the watering area out to get as much of the dirt out of there that washes toward the drain. Hope this will keep if from getting clogged for a little while.

Hope your four-legged friends enjoy a little less clutter in their communal spaces.

Thanks for posting this cute video Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital! Sometimes everyone can use a little encouragement to get in the car and go to work 🙂

  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?
