Located in Lake Forest, this special place is one of five designated off-leash Dog Parks within the Lake County Forest Preserves where dogs can run and play off-leash.
The 44-acre area is fenced and features training enclosures, large fields, trails, toilets, water and a drinking fountain. Dogs can swim in a pond located through gates at the east end of the park. Please pay close attention to your dog in this open swimming area to make sure it does not stray.
