Located in Waukegan, this cool new spot is one of five designated off-leash Dog Parks operated by the Lake County Forest Preserves where dogs can run and play off-leash. This Dog Park is part of Waukegan Savanna Forest Preserve.

The 11-acre area is entirely fenced and features a large open area, a separate enclosed area for small dogs weighing less than 25 pounds, shade shelters with seating, drinking water for dogs and people, toilets, and a large parking lot.
