Located in Lake Villa, this special place is one of four designated Dog Parks within the Lake County Forest Preserves where dogs can run and play off-leash.
The 48-acre fenced area features open fields, grass trails, toilets, water and a drinking fountain.
An annual or daily permit and a dog are required for entry. Permits allow access to all four Dog Parks. Daily permits can be purchased in advance online or at a self-pay station located in the parking lot of each Dog Park.
