New Dog Park

Park District land on Old York Road offers optimal space for Elmhurst’s first off-leash dog park, an amenity many of our neighboring communities already have. Based on your Vision 2020 input, we’ve formed a master plan with conceptual designs that include separate areas for small and large dogs, a walking path, shaded space and agility equipment.
