Out and About: Illinois' Chicago Park District

Out and About: Illinois' Chicago Park District

Welcome back to PetSugar's Out and About feature! After two weeks of holidays, we're starting up again in the midwest with the state of Illinois. Even though it's pretty chilly in Chicago at this time of year, pet owners still make the dog-friendly areas of the Chicago Park District full of life. With twelve official spots listed on their website, doggies need a permit and tag to play at all parks including hardtop hit, Wiggly Field, and warm-weather standout, Montrose Beach. The rules require all shots and vet visits be up to date, and a purchased seasonal tag ($5) that's valid from 1/1 to 12/31 with no sliding scale offered. While it's great that the city wants to keep pets safe, visitors must plan ahead to get this documentation for their pals to avoid a $500 fine!
