Our Favorite West Loop Dog Parks
While you’re staying with us, make sure you bring your pupper to some of the dog parks in our neighborhood.
Skinner Bark Park
Just across the street from Skinner Park, the Bark Park is a large, pro-dog zone with artificial turf and kiddie pools for cooling off. When the summer heat hits, relax on a shaded bench while chatting with other dog owners.
17 S. Loomis St | 0.5 Miles from Hotel Chicago West Loop
Mary Bartelme Park
This park is a big hit with the furry set due to the ramps, ledges, and steps available for climbing, jumping and generally getting all that energy out. Water-loving pups will enjoy the hoses available for filling up kiddie pools and water bowls.
115 S. Sangamon St | 1.0 Miles from Hotel Chicago West Loop
This public dog park is the largest in the city at half an acre. If your furry friend likes to play fetch or run free, he’ll find plenty of space here!

Beaches Aren’t Just for Humans
While this next park isn’t technically a park and isn’t technically in the neighborhood, it’s worth a visit. Mostly because it’s one of Chicago's absolute favorite places to play with your pup!
Montrose Dog Beach
Your dog can roam free, go for a swim, catch a frisbee, or socialize with other puppers right on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. Open during regular Chicago Park District hours, Montrose Dog Beach is a must-see for pooches and owners alike! The area is fully fenced and offers free dog waste bags and even a dog wash area. While it’s free to get in, you’ll need a Dog Friendly Area (DFA) tag which costs $5.00.
