Ohio Place Dog Park Temporary Closure – Monday 5/13 for three weeks

Message from Alderman Brendan Reilly

Based on resident feedback, Alderman Reilly has allocated a portion of the Aldermanic Menu to fund improvements at the Ohio Place Dog Park.

Last fall, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) installed sod throughout the Park at the Alderman’s request. Unfortunately, residents allowed their dogs to play on the sod while fencing and “Keep Off Grass” signage was in-place. This ruined the sod because it wasn’t able to take root.

On Monday, May 13, CDOT will close the park and conduct hydroseeding. The Park will be closed for three weeks to allow the new grass to grow uninterrupted.

Ward 42  encourages you to use the Larrabee Street Dog Park during the closure.
