Best park I've been to

2012 rates are going up, but still worth every penny.

Great park!!! Easy to get to. Great people.

Great dog park. I take my two dogs there every weekend. They have a small patch of small trees and brush that my bird dog enjoys. Great people to meet and a lot of regulars who treat everybody with respect. They provide waste bags to pick up after your dog. Everybody keeps it pretty clean. I have yet to step into anything. They have a pavilion area to sit down and let the dogs socialize.

Downside: I wish the Forest Preserve would occasionally wash down the pavilion area. It can get dirty. I would like to see them add a couple more benches and/or picnic tables in the area.
