BarkPark

Notice: We will be closed from January 31st to February 1st for maintenance. We are understand that property has been muddier than usual, so we are adding more playground mulch to spot. Sorry for the inconvenience! BarkPark sits right across the street from The Salvation Army Freedom Center. This spot is fully fenced (chain link and wood) with the side facing the sidewalk being 5ft and the rest of the fence being 6ft. There is a dual-gate entrance to the spot for a safe entry and exit. Street parking is available. Plenty of seating at this spot with shade throughout the day. There's a rain barrel filled with water for dogs to hydrate and cool down. We have water bowls available. GIANT sandbox that's great for digging and playing; no digging allowed elsewhere. Trash can onsite. We have poop bags available in two different areas for easy access. Half of this spot is covered with grass and the other half with playground mulch. This spot is big enough to get a good fetch session in or to just let the zoomies out. We also recently added agility equipment. We hope you and your four-legged friend/s have an exceptional time during your visit and choose to come back. Lost toys and items: due to the amount of visits we get we aren’t able to track which items belong to which visitor. If you’ve lost a dog toy or other item, please reach out and we’ll do our best to retrieve it and save it for you. If you don’t reach out, we’ll add it to the Lost and Found Toy Box. Update: Due to the colder temperatures we won’t be adding dog drinking water until early Spring. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Tiva's Green City Space(FREE private parking)

**We have added OPEN reservations from 8:30am to 5:30pm weekdays for people that would like to visit the yard prior to deciding if they would like to become full access Members.** We LOVE sharing our space with multiple dogs from the community however, it is hard on the grass. For this reason, we have limited our evening & weekend availability to Members Only to decrease the wear and tear on the yard. With the fluctuation in weather please be aware: If outdoor parks are wet and muddy ~ areas of our yard will be also. We cannot control the effects of rain. Please always use the provided carabiner to lock the gate as pictured after you and your dog(s) enter. We have installed multiple methods of LIGHTING for evening reservations. Easy instructions for use will be sent when you make the reservation. We do have a SHADE/RAIN SHELTER! :) WATER: We provide fresh water every 24hrs located in(or next to) the CORONA Cooler. PARKING: One FREE private parking space located at the entrance from the alley at the back of the lot. Since some guests were having a tough time with the parking space, we did finally WIDEN the entrance. We park 2 Honda CRV's back there daily without issue. Fully fenced 6 foot secure and private green space. Large open lot with seating and plenty of room to play fetch or just relax off leash. Easy street parking, no permit required. Any Extras will be located in the storage bin on the east wall of the lot. We have evening hours 6:00p to 9:30p for Members Only, 7 days per week.

Riverview yard in Albany Park

Update: Bad news: The weather is making the front gate wonky. Sometimes it closes perfectly, sometimes not. There’s a bungie cord to help close it, but if this is a concern for you and your pup, wait a bit until I figure out a good fix. Good news: new adairondak chairs and new toys added! Chairs should hopefully sink less into the dirt and are a bit more loungey. New tug toy and chuck it ball to the box of toys. Large yard right on the river. No access to the river (yard is fully fenced), but human views of the water, ducks, other birds, and wildflowers on the bank. Plenty to sniff for dogs. End of dead end with decent privacy. Chain link fence on most and iron fence at front. Not ideal for small dogs or escape artists that can squeeze under or through fence. See photos for details of fence and if your dog would try to squeeze through. Pesticide, herbicide, and fertilizer free lawn but various flowers, shrubs (and weeds) on the edges. There are 3 big dogs at the house across the alley, but also well fenced. They’re out on occasion, but usually not for long and I can’t guarantee their schedule. The view is mostly, but not completely blocked, so this may not be the place if your pup is super reactive. There are 2 chairs, feel free to move around into sun or shade or lay out a blanket or whatever you need to be comfortable. There is stainless steel water bowl and some toys.

We will definitely be back! My 60lb doodle and I loved the space. It was clean, quiet, had lots of different places to explore/sniff and had coverings on the fences that made it feel totally private. The host also left out everything I could have forgotten—lots of fresh water, sanitizing wipes and fun toys—which was a total bonus!

Tivas place has been my favorite sniffspot in the city. Amazing yard, seating for people that lights up automatically when it gets dark, variety of toys (and sanitized) and extra special with a care package for my pup (and my car!). Would recommend over and over again.

This was perfect for my foster dog who wanted to play fetch and run off leash. Quiet neighborhood and the hosts include all of the amenities you might need, including toys and water etc. Lots of free street parking. Would definitely return!

Easy to find, easy lock/unlock system, safe-feeling area, lots of street parking (private parking is a bonus, my Jeep doesn’t fit but plenty of close street parking!), the toys and water availability was a great add-on, and nice size space with privacy. We will be back!

Parking everywhere. Neighbors were so nice! The yard was perfect size and lots of open grass. The access gate was easy to see and enter, there was a sign on the door that said “sniffspot” so you weren’t confused. They offered water and phone chargers too! There’s a sitting spot for owners and lots of things for the pup to sniff. There was a dog 2 houses over but he seemed unbothered by mine. This was a great experience and worth the drive!! Can’t wait to come back.

I’ve visited this spot several times and love it! This was our first time going after sunset and the space was set up so beautifully! There were little tiki lights and fairy lights that set a wonderful mood for a summer night. also really appreciated the bug spray left out for humans!

Amazing spot! Some noise, but felt very private. Honey loved the sanitized toys left out for her, and we loved the patio seating. The private parking entrance is REALLY narrow; would recommend just parking on the street nearby. Can’t wait to return!

Their space is great! Louie had a great time running around nonstop. Of note in classic Chicago alley way fashion that the parking spot in the alley is tight to pull into if you have a wider car like mine (a RAV) so keep that into consideration as there is a wooden gate opening that you have to be able to turn into but not much room with a garage behind you, there’s also street parking too.

Parking spot in the back is a bit tight, but the space for the dogs is awesome! I love that my dogs couldn't see through the fence, it created a more private experience for us. There were also lots of toys to choose from and water/bowls for the pups!

Great massive space with tons of bells and whistles. The toys, provided water & water bowls plus a shaded seating area makes this a wonderful place for both four legged friends as well as their humans. Greatly appreciated all there was to offer (including the convenient parking!)

FAQ about our Blue Island dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.

All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 95% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Blue Island area are 5 stars.

You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 219 fully fenced dog parks in the area.
