    This is not the park for dog owners who want to let their dog off-leash. The rules are clear. It is illegal. Go to a different park if that's what you want.

    It's great for running, exercising and dog-walking, and it's very safe.

    They've xerascaped large sections of the park with Prairie grasses and shrubs, making it very hospitable to wildlife, especially on summer evenings.

    An unofficial dog park. You 'can' let your dog off leash, be careful it's not legal, but the police won't hassle you if you clean up poop, stay out of the forbidden areas

    One of the nicest parks I've ever been in. When the wildflowers are in bloom late spring/early summer in the natural prairie areas is the best.

    Head over after your day at the park for some hummus, baba ganoush, gyros or coucous. Get $10 off the purchase of 2 entrees with your 1st Foursquare check-in.

    40 acres of terrain features a fitness center, track and field, cross training and more. The park is home to the Chicago United Runners and various community clubs that run the trails year round.
