Tiva's Green City Space(FREE private parking)

**We have added OPEN reservations from 8:30am to 5:30pm weekdays for people that would like to visit the yard prior to deciding if they would like to become full access Members.** We LOVE sharing our space with multiple dogs from the community however, it is hard on the grass. For this reason, we have limited our evening & weekend availability to Members Only to decrease the wear and tear on the yard. With the fluctuation in weather please be aware: If outdoor parks are wet and muddy ~ areas of our yard will be also. We cannot control the effects of rain. Please always use the provided carabiner to lock the gate as pictured after you and your dog(s) enter. We have installed multiple methods of LIGHTING for evening reservations. Easy instructions for use will be sent when you make the reservation. We do have a SHADE/RAIN SHELTER! :) WATER: We provide fresh water every 24hrs located in(or next to) the CORONA Cooler. PARKING: One FREE private parking space located at the entrance from the alley at the back of the lot. Since some guests were having a tough time with the parking space, we did finally WIDEN the entrance. We park 2 Honda CRV's back there daily without issue. Fully fenced 6 foot secure and private green space. Large open lot with seating and plenty of room to play fetch or just relax off leash. Easy street parking, no permit required. Any Extras will be located in the storage bin on the east wall of the lot. We have evening hours 6:00p to 9:30p for Members Only, 7 days per week.

BarkPark

Grass and rain: Please keep in mind that during moderate to heavy rains the area without mulch can get muddy. Beginning May of 2024, we will post pictures daily to our Instagram account showing the condition of the spot. As you can imagine, due to the wear and tear the spot gets, it’s difficult to keep the grass alive. However, we do our best to reseed during the spring. BarkPark sits right across the street from The Salvation Army Freedom Center. This spot is fully fenced (chain link and wood) with the side facing the sidewalk being 5ft and the rest of the fence being 6ft. There is a dual-gate entrance to the spot for a safe entry and exit. Street parking is available. There is plenty of seating at this spot with shade throughout the day. There's a rain barrel filled with water for dogs to hydrate and cool down. We have water bowls available. GIANT sandbox that's great for digging and playing; no digging elsewhere please. On hot days, we do our best to keep the sand wet. Trash can onsite. We have poop bags available in two different areas for easy access. Half of this spot is covered with grass and the other half with playground mulch. This spot is big enough to get a good fetch session in or to just let the zoomies out. We also recently added agility equipment. We hope you and your four-legged friend/s have an exceptional time during your visit and choose to come back. Lost toys and items: Due to the amount of visits we get we aren’t able to track which items belong to which guest. If you’ve lost a dog toy or other item, please reach out and we’ll do our best to retrieve it and hold it for you. If you don’t reach out, we’ll hold onto it for a week and then add it to the Lost and Found Toy Box. Water: The dog drinking water gets changed 1-2 times per week, depending on the temperature/usage. During the winter months we empty the water barrel. If your dog/s require water during the winter months, we ask that you please bring your own. Food: You’re welcomed to bring food but we ask that you please clean up as a courtesy to other guests. Future additions: We hope to add more amenities over time. Our plans are to add more sand to the sandbox in late April or early May of 2024. We’re also hoping to have on-site parking around mid summer of 2024. If you have any suggestions for amenities, we’d love to hear your feedback.

Riverview yard in Albany Park

Update: Bad news: The weather is making the front gate wonky. Sometimes it closes perfectly, sometimes not. There’s a bungie cord to help close it, but if this is a concern for you and your pup, wait a bit until I figure out a good fix. Good news: new adairondak chairs and new toys added! Chairs should hopefully sink less into the dirt and are a bit more loungey. New tug toy and chuck it ball to the box of toys. Large yard right on the river. No access to the river (yard is fully fenced), but human views of the water, ducks, other birds, and wildflowers on the bank. Plenty to sniff for dogs. End of dead end with decent privacy. Chain link fence on most and iron fence at front. Not ideal for small dogs or escape artists that can squeeze under or through fence. See photos for details of fence and if your dog would try to squeeze through. Pesticide, herbicide, and fertilizer free lawn but various flowers, shrubs (and weeds) on the edges. There are 3 big dogs at the house across the alley, but also well fenced. They’re out on occasion, but usually not for long and I can’t guarantee their schedule. The view is mostly, but not completely blocked, so this may not be the place if your pup is super reactive. There are 2 chairs, feel free to move around into sun or shade or lay out a blanket or whatever you need to be comfortable. There is stainless steel water bowl and some toys.

My dogs love this spot and we will keep returning. The train does run right overhead, but that’s the city. Parking is easy and it’s always very clean.

55We love coming here! The space is huge and in a quiet area (other than the train but doesn’t bother my pups). We love the fake grass since it can be hard to find non-muddy spaces. Great parking right out front.

55I have a large and small dog (german shepherd and pug mix) and they loved the spot. Living in downtown, my dogs and I definitely miss being about to just roam or run around the yard. This was the perfect spot to do so. It is close enough from the city for me to access but in a pretty quiet neighborhood.

We rarely saw people or dogs walk by. There's plenty of street parking and she also offers complimentary parking by the gate entrance to her yard. Cannot wait to visit again!

So thoughtful to leave toys, water/bowl, treats, towel and wipes. Pamela also set up the kiddie pool which our youngest loved. Super safe and secure (my two are escape artists) and we will definitely be back!

There’s also a kiddie pool and while my dog is not a fan of water it’s a great addition for those that do. I would recommend bringing insect repellent though as I did walk out with some bites

55Fully fenced front/side yard. Host was friendly and left water and otherwise left us to play. The space is sort of in two connected sections. There is an open space in the front, and the side yard is narrow and has a fire pit and plants and other normal yard things you’d have in a yard you use. If you have one smaller dog, this would be perfect; plenty of room to run off leash. It’s on the smaller side for bigger dogs or multiple dogs; it’s not a wide open space with distance to really pick up speed. But, the sniffing seemed to be first rate 😀 and frankly ANY space to be off leash for a reactive dog is awesome and so needed around Wicker Park. And our 2 50-ish lb dogs still ran a bit, and they were definitely playing and happy and stimulated. Location is terrific. We saw a couple of people but generally quiet and no major triggers for our reactive dog. We will be back for sure! Thanks!

FAQ about our Chicago dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 95% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Chicago area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 240 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 40 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
