Good News, Bad News! Which do you want first?     


Good news:  Phase II drawings are officially out for bid! The Chicago Park District will review the bids when they are returned in two weeks and hopefully have a contractor selected by early October with construction ready to start soon after.  

Bad news:  When construction starts the dog park will be closed for a period of time, so please keep checking our Facebook, Instagram or Website for updates. 

Good news: This means that we may be getting a paved entryway, water fountain, water play area, small dog area, turf play fields, benches and other improvements to make your dog park experience even more enjoyable in every kind of weather. 

Bad news: We don’t yet have the money to pay for all of this. We are about $40,000 short of estimated costs, and we only have another few weeks to raise it or risk having the project reduced or postponed. 

Good news: We still have time. Help us get the funds we need to get everything built this year! Venmo, Paypal, Mail a Check and other options for donating can be found here https://hornerparkdogpark.org/donate/  If everyone who uses the dog park gave a one-time donation of just $20, we would reach our goal. Please share this information with people you meet at the dog park–many people still don’t know–and encourage them to donate as well so we can build our new dog park, togethertoday

Dog Park & Covid-19

At the time of this writing, Saturday April 4, 2020 5:15 pm, the dog park is open. The Dog Park is on Chicago Park District property and it is therefore their call on whether to keep it open or close it during this time. We know they are monitoring the area and we will await their guidance. We will share, on this page and through our social media outlets, any new information that becomes available. Thank you for your continued support.
