Chicago’s Very Posh Bark Avenue

barkave.jpg

Chicago is slated to get the creme de la creme of dog parks. The drawing above is a rendering of the new 13,000 square foot dog park that’s being built at the south end of the city’s Grant Park. The Chicago Tribune reports:

[The run will] include a doggie drinking fountain. Plumbing will also be installed for a future decorative fountain for warm-weather frolicking… The dog park, slated for spring construction at a cost of about $150,000, will be larger and more elaborate than any other district dog park…It will have two asphalt paths winding from wrought-iron gated entrances.

(From the article O, You Lucky Dogs.)

I’m not a Chicago denizen, so I can’t speak about the choice of its location and/or the community the park is being built in. I’d love to get the inside scoop though (yes, pun intended, duh)… please share your dog park knowledge with the UnBeige community: email jen AT unbeige DOT com.
