Hands down... the Best

Hands down, the best dog park in Chicago.... but don't take my word for it; compare all the dog parks by size, features, amenities, photo-ops, community events and overall review site ratings.

Simply put a 'Doggie Wonderland'.

A beautiful location with lots of room, features and amenities, that you're not likely to find anywhere else. A truly unique dog park that has many great photo ops.

From spring through fall they have open playdates everyday (weather permitting) 7-9am and 5-7pm. Like, share and follow on social media for news of their special events, last summer they had a 'Pupicnic' and in October a 'Howloween Pawty'.

More than a 'Dog Park', a 'Pup Amusement Park'.

My Noah loves this place and i in turn do too. Weather permitting, we go every morning and evening. Most of the dogs and their puparents are very social/friendly. In the event, no dogs are present to play with, there are a large variety of toys and agility features to keep your pup busy til someone shows up. For the puparents, there is free parking in the nearby parking lot, a water fountain, a community board and active community online via their website/social-media-sites... plus they have many benches and sun shades to sit under. 'Dog Park' is an inadequate descriptor for Jackson Bark, 'Pup Amusement Park' would be more like it.

We love Jackson Bark

So happy to find a place where Jacs and I can enjoy ourselves safely and freely. We met a lot new pup families here and Jacs has more new lovely friends. Hope to see more dogs here!

Not your typical dog park

This dog park has your typical safety and accommodation features plus a well rounded agility course, designed for young and old pups too. Free parking is open from 6:00 AM-11:00 PM but the dog park is open/accessible by foot 24/7. Lights come on at dusk.
