The separate Dog Park entrance is on Waukegan Road (Route 43) south of Old Mill Road and north of Half Day Road (Route 22). An annual or daily permit and a dog are required for use.
Please keep dogs leashed and on trails at all times, and pick up after them.
The Prairie Wolf Dog Park is also located here, with a separate entrance on Waukegan Road. An annual or daily permit and a dog are required for entry.
In the early 1970s, the Lake County Forest Preserves moved to save 150 acres of land north of Old Mill Road. Additional land was purchased between 1976 and 1979.
