Best Dog Park: Danny Jackson Family Bark Park

Nestled just barely inside the Loop is one of the more unique little parks in the city. A narrow set of trails runs for several blocks along busy Westpark with the best feature: the Danny Jackson Family Bark Park. The whole thing is tucked quite conveniently into a relatively small patch of green space that may have otherwise gone unused. No doubt the neighbors at the nearby apartments love the convenience for their pups.

It's got multiple pools for dogs big and small alike — there is a separate area for smaller dogs — as your canine companions are free to run off leash and splash about with other doggos. And, for the adults who would prefer their car to not be completely destroyed by wet, dirty dog, there is a rinse off area to help get your buddy cleaned up for the drive home.
