55Nice big yard nothing fancy. Just what we needed. We’ll be back forsure.
55exactly as described- my dog had a lot of fun! thanks
55Accurate and reliable!
55Great spot!
55Nikkole’s place was great! There is one hole in the fence that a small dog could wiggle through, but I have two big dogs so it wasn’t an issue for us. There’s plenty of room to run and our pups loved to romp on the grass. Only suggestion would be a bench to sit, but we were playing with the pups and didn’t mind it too much. We’ll be back!
55This is a great spot! There was plenty of room for my dog to run around and he had a great time. If you have a little dog, then this may not be the spot for you because there are some areas a small dog could slip through. We do not have that issue, we’ve got a big boy. The back fence is also chain link, so you can see through and those neighbors do have a dog (see photos). I was nervous at first because my dog can be leash reactive, but the other dog was so chill- didn’t bark at all. They touched noses once and my dog went right back to playing. It wasn’t an issue for us, and we will be back, but I mention that in case you have a reactive dog that may not like being able to see another dog! Overall great space for us, just consider the above when renting!
55Location is perfect and my dogs had a blast running around. I’m looking forward to seeing the development of this space! My recommendation would be a chair or bench for people to sit.
55Great city-lot sized yard! Pretty much all grass. Both neighbors that share a fence with the lot have dogs so if your pup is reactive be warned!
45The long side yard is a great space for our greyhound to stretch his legs. This new Sniff Spot is a bit rough around the edges (literally and figuratively), but it’s a great location for us and I look forward to coming back and seeing how the owner develops the space! 💚
15The gate would not lock and my dog got under the gate twice and almost ran off. There was also some trash in the space — my dog found what appeared to be a license plate with a rotting mouse on it. We had to leave after 15 minutes because it did not feel like a safe and secure environment for my dog. Before this can be ready to be a Sniffspot the gate and fence issues need to be fixed.

Description

I did not know that this was a thing so please excuse the yard if it is not up to par. Right now it is just a grassy fenced in spot. As I learn more I will try to make upgrades.

Cleanliness

88% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

It's a side yard that we just let our dogs run around in. I didn't even know that this was a thing. So I'll try to make it better as I learn more.

Notice: We are closing the spot on May 23rd for maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience. 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.

**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.

Riverview yard in Albany Park

Cicada update: as of Thursday night? I’ve seen literally 3 cicadas, but I guess that could change any day. 🤞 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. Pesticide, and herbicide, free lawn but various flowers, shrubs (and weeds) on the edges. Lots of wildlife in the area. Birds visit, bunnies, squirrels, etc. more than your average Chicago yard. End of dead end with pretty good privacy. There are 3 big dogs at the house across the alley, but they are also well fenced. They are out on occasion, but usually not for long and I can’t guarantee their schedule. The view is mostly blocked by garbage cans and bushes, but not completely, so this may not be the place if your pup is super reactive. There are 2 Adirondack 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. Feel free to use the hose by the stairs to fill up the water bowl hose the dogs off or whatever. You can pull it out into the middle of the yard, just put your foot on top of the reel to get better leverage and please reel back in after use. 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.
