Albany Park Dog Park

Has there ever been a push to get a dog park installed in Albany Park? Eugene Park and Jensen Park seem like they could accomodate one, and there are a lot of dogs in the area as well. With the slight uptick in the crime around this part of the neighborhood, perhaps something like this would be one way to bring the neighborhood together more, so collectively we can take back the neighborhood.

  • There is an active effort to get a dog friendly area built at Horner Park.

    https://hornerparkdogpark.org/

    Dog parks not only need approval from the Park District, they have to be substantially community funded as well as maintained by volunteers. See the FAQ section for more details on this process - it’s not rapid.

  • The horner park group had all the money they needed they recently found out they would need to install turf in the entire area which just increased their costs. They are continuing to raise money. https://hornerparkdogpark.org/

2-3 gunshots just now at Montrose and Kimball

Called 911, dispatcher said officers were already on the scene. Saw a couple guys walking out of the alley.

  • What time did this happen?

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the gang graffiti that was put on the building on the southeast corner of Kimball and Belleplaine? Gang graffiti was wrote in big letters with an arrow pointing down all down the Kimball side of the building. Terrible that someone thinks it's OK to shoot and wreck property!! I think the gang graffiti was already removed. It was disgusting to stand by it to catch my bus. It looked so ugly. This building gets this every year and nobody sees anything as it would have taken quite a while to write the side of this building.
