    Amazing place, we will be back!

    Great place for the girls to run and wrestle. Artificial turf is great, lots to climb and jump on. Good water access even on a cold, windy Chicago day. There were dogs right on the other side of the fence so it may be a problem if your dog is fence protective.

    Great spot! Easy to access. Be mindful if you have a reactive dog, that this is under the train line.

    Very clean space with various surfaces and activities for dogs, including 2 separate sitting areas for humans to watch the play time or to have some breaks for the dogs. There's some agility equipment that was fun for the dogs to explore, and provided opportunities for training fun too. We enjoyed our time and would come back! It's nice to have a spot to come on a muddy day and not worry about muddy dogs.

    I will preface this by saying that I have come here many times and in the past have loved it, but the park has had some pretty big issues recently. In addition to the broken equipment other people have added pictures for the lock on the gate also is broken, which seems to have led to people in the neighborhood using the space. When I came here this week there was a large empty glass liquor bottle in the concrete area of the park, as well as other trash. Luckily it hadn’t broken- if it would have it would have been a nightmare in terms of injuring the dogs. Additionally, I’ve tried to reach out the team via messages a couple of times recently regarding questions on bookings and never heard back on either. Bummer of an experience, especially because this is a 40 minute drive from my home.

    Fun spot for my dog! There was a big hole in the middle that looks like it used to have a jump rail in it, might cause injuries if a dog stepped in it while running around. I covered it with a water bowl. Otherwise, great space with nice amenities!

    Great place with plenty of room for my dog to run around and get some good training in. Will definitely be back!

    Area is well kept. Staff and Tara were easy to get a hold of. I will definitely be bringing my dog back! All around great experience.

    The spot needed a little love — there was a broken obstacle, the bar in the middle of the park and the turf had several poop stains, but overall my dog still enjoyed it and was a good experience.
