Beck Lake Dog Friendly Area
The Beck Lake Dog Friendly Area (DFA) provides a safe, friendly environment for dog owners to unleash their dogs legally. Allowing our dogs to run freely is essential. It not only allows us to experience the joy of seeing our dogs so happy, but gives them the exercise they need to stay healthy.
Beck Lake DFA is not only for dogs, it is a place where the whole
can spend time together or enjoy a nice walk in the woods with their
companions. A DFA is a place where people can recreate with their dogs,
whether going for walks in the woods, playing a game of Frisbee,
etc. A DFA is a place that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
The gate must NOT remain unlocked!!!!!! Cook County Animal Control ONLY
approved the dog park on the condition that the gate remain locked.
The entrance of our DFA can, at times, become congested. This can be frightening to shy or nervous dogs. For this reason we have moved the existing picnic benches away from gated area. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR DOG(S) TO RUSH AND MEET NEW ARRIVALS ENTERING THE DFA.
Beck Lake Dog Area Group gratefully acknowledges these individuals and organizations for their financial support in the early days, when it mattered most:
