Where the Chicago River and Lake Michigan meet, isn't just an ideal place for in-the-know Chicagoans to reside, it's the perfect place for their pooches, too. And what better location to live in than the luxury apartments at Cascade? Here, you'll find the utmost in city living, whether you have two legs or four.

The parks and trails surrounding Cascade are ideal areas for exercising, socializing, or simply relishing your lakeside surroundings. But if you happen to have a dog, there are custom-built spots within fetching distance that will keep your best buddy entertained and in prize-winning shape, too. Lined with paths and peppered with dog-only parks, the area around Cascade gives both pups and their humans a chance to experience the joy of living in Chicago.

Let's take a look at some of the spots where you and Spot, or whatever your furry bestie's name is, can run, play, and appreciate the dog-centric allure of Lakeshore East.

Lakeshore East Dog Park

Your dog can feel the breeze off the lake and the freedom of being off-leash at the Lakeshore East Dog Park. This dedicated area exclusively for pups allows your furry family members to hang with their best friends right in the neighborhood β€” and it’s just minutes from Cascade. Thanks to the park's contained area and pet friendly comfort, be prepared to spend a lot of time here as your dog sniffs around, insists on playing fetch, or simply lolls in the ample shade provided by the plentiful trees.

Grant Park

If your pup is less about lounging and more about moving, why not take them to Grant Park? An afternoon in this world-famous green space will be enriching for both you and your pooch! While much of this massive park is strictly humans-only, there is a lovely 18,000-square-foot enclosed area for dogs to play in. Watch them fetch, frolic, and sip from the fountains. Just remember: If you'd like to take your pet off-leash in this section of the park, you'll need to get a tag from your veterinarian.

Cascade Bark

Fortunately, when you live at Cascade, you can stay even closer to home for the closest dog amenities – like not leaving it at all! Cascade Park can be found at the base of Cascade Park. The space includes a dedicated area for Rover to roam, aptly named Cascade Bark. Residents have access to an indoor suite of amenities including a dog wash station, and indoor relief area ideal for cold weather dates. Please be aware of the automatic cleaning cycles that take place daily by visiting your resident app!

Finding shops and services for your dog close to home at Cascade is effortless, whether you're looking for a vet or a fancy pet store, like Kriser's Natural Pet, where you can stock up on the essentials β€” and maybe a few extra toys and treats.
