  • Dog beach heaven!
  • Feel free to remind people that this is a DOG beach. If you don't want dogs chasing your soccer ball/frisbee go to the human beach - even if it's crowded. Please don't set up tents/grills here.
  • Get ball, throw into water. Have dog retrieve it. Enjoy the moment. Repeat.
  • Come down here if you need a little joy in your life. Nothing quite like the sight of dogs having a great time together.
  • A very large stretch of beach that can get crowded on weekends. The fencing may be down in places, so keep an eye on your dog.
  • Dogs+Beach= : )
  • Frozen shoreline fun
  • DON'T BRING FOOD. Or be prepared to pay the consequences
  • An hour at the beach with your best friend, how fun.
  • Avoid the weekends in the summer. Lots of dogs without Dog Friendly Area tags. Plus it's packed.
  • Dogs will steal your dogs toys. Some will be nice to bring it back. Smile.
  • BYO(B)all.
  • Dogs are dogs. Don't get pissed when they piss on your stuff.
  • Fun beach for dogs
  • Fun, clean and friendly! Always a good time!
  • While they do all have medical degrees, refrain from asking the dog-ters for medical advice while they are relaxing.
  • The fence makes for a great improvised volleyball net for a casual game
  • Remember: food is actually NOT allowed in the dog beach area, not human or dog food. It's not a question of tempting dogs vs. controlling them -- it is simply against the park's rules! Check the link.
  • Wavefront Music Festival is a three-day electronic dance music festival returning to Chicago's Montrose Beach on July 5th, 6th, & 7th, 2013. CHECK US OUT online -
