The dog owners of Chicago have spoken: Montrose Dog Beach has taken the reigns as the city's very best dog park. Last week we asked readers to vote for their favorite dog park, and it was hardly a contest. Uptown's Montrose Dog Beach received over half of all votes cast, beating out Winnemac Park, Challenger Playlot, Grant Bark and Wiggly Field. Chicagoans love to spend their summer days outside at the beach, and apparently their pet friends do as well. And although the human-only side of Montrose Beach may be one of the dirtiest in Chicago, the dog-friendly area allows pets to roam free in the sand in the safety of a fenced area and is kept rather clean. The park now offers free Wifi and is open year-round.
