New Dog Park Opens in Highland Park
Permits can be bought at Heller Nature Reserve.
The following information comes from the Park District of Highland Park.
Located at Larry Fink Memorial Park, the Park District's new dog park is open year round, dawn to dusk.
There are two fenced areas, one for larger dogs, and one for smaller dogs. Permits are required and can be purchased at Heller Nature Center.
Other dog parks in Highland Park include:
The Moraine Beach season begins April 1 and is open through late November.
Highland Park Golf Learning Center
This is the winter site and is available November through March.
*The fenced dog exercise areas are the ONLY Park District locations that dogs are allowed off-leash. A picture permit card is required to be allowed entrance into any of these off-leash areas. We want all of our guests to have fun and be safe; rules and regulations will be strictly enforced. Dog owner cooperation and compliance is the key to the success of this program.
