Cook County Public Dog Parks

Dog Parks are typically located on land owned by the Cook County or local government, often as a dedicated area within a larger public park. In other cases, the land may be purchased by a citizens' group or donated by an individual, business, or organization for the purpose of creating a Dog Park. The maintenance and operation of Dog Parks located on public land is usually a shared responsibility between the Cook County or local government and a citizens' group or non-profit established for that purpose. The Cook County government will sometimes pay for water, electricity, and garbage removal from a Cook County Dog Park, while a citizens' group or non-profit provides regular cleaning, cutting of grass, repairs, and other maintenance activities. Other Cook County indoor dog parks, which are usually private, provide safe and clean places for dogs to socialize with other animals and even practice agility training.
