Fully 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!
Paris's Palatial Playground was perfect for us! Easy to find and park. It was just the right size for our smaller dog. Great communication from host.
Me and my dog Mac had a great time hanging out here. Instructions for getting in were easy and the yard is clean and as described here. We’d love to come back sometime
Parking was convenient and the space was perfect! The pool and toys were great additions that my dogs enjoyed.
Just what we were looking for to let our girls off leash! They had a blast and got to release so much energy. They are now out cold on the couch. 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!
This spot is amazing!! Full of grass to sniff and the host is very sweet. She greeted me before coming in to have a conversation and make sure everything was perfect for our visit!
Perfect summer location with plenty of shade in a pretty quiet neighborhood. Pamala was very accommodating and they always love they’re time there!
Highly recommend and will be going back! Very nice, clean and spacious outdoor area — my dog loved it! Pamela, the host, is incredibly sweet and accommodating. Great communication too!
This spot is wonderful! Billy enjoyed running around with his human brother. Pamela is very welcoming and she is there for you needs. This location is very clean and quiet. 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!
I 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.
Great sniff spot! My dog wasn’t bothered by it, but an FYI for others who may be reactive to some noises - there is a train literally directly over the street.
Payton’s place is a fantastic spot to let pups out to play, and is super convenient for us as west loop residents. Lots of room, well kept, and is as private as you could ask for a fenced in area within the city, and under the L.
