    Huge And Fun

    This place is great. We usually go in the morning and there aren’t a lot of others. We love to take the large loop- takes about 35 minutes to walk around. There are woods, prairie and pond to explore. Sooo many critters to smell and exciting things to explore.

    Not good for visitors

    The park looks great it has a ton of room and and good looking lake, my dog would've had a great time here if we got in. This is a membership only park. So unless you're a member don't waste you're time.

    permit required

    You need a cook county park district canine permit with key to access the enclosed dog area. Warning: no one seems to clean up after their dogs, so keep your eyes in the ground at all times, for your and your dogs health!

    Dirty water

    I have been taking my two labs to Beck Lake Dog Park since October of 2012. My dogs LOVE this park and the amount of room they have to run and swim. My concern is the quality of the water in the lake/pond. Over the past 4 months my dogs have had serveral visits to the vet as a result of swimming in the water. They have had upsets stomachs, skin rash and conjunctivitis. Lately the water seems scummy and I do not know if it is ever tested to see if it is safe for dogs to swim in. With Labs if there is water at a dog park they are going in for a swim. I just wish the water was clean and safe for my dogs. :(

    Wonderful Dog Park

    Beck lake offers your dog everything it could want - massive room to run, play, sniff, hike, swim, or walk the entire perimeter for a mile and a half adventure. Lakes, trees, meadows - all fenced in so we don't have to worry about our puppies wandering off! Best of all, dogs must be up to date on shots, vaccinations, and have a fecal test in order to join - so no worries about comunicable problems! Cannot recommend this place enough - don't think twice, just join! (Oh, and have met many wonderful owners as well - alway someone to walk with!)
