Plans are in the works for a state of the art, world class
dog-park at Maverick Park. The transformation of the park will be an exciting addition to River North and downtown areas which include over 1800 residential units. The first phase of the project will be primarily focused on the dog park. Features include a dog agility area, a creek for water recreation, a wash tub, separate areas for large and small dogs, and a terrain play area. The sustainability features are the driving force behind this project.  It will include a water filtration system and will strive to be a net-zero impact site. Plans for a future phase include an outdoor adult fitness area as well as a children’s playground and public art.

There is no question that Maverick Park is in desperate need
of a transformation. It such an amazing, important location and is currently under-utilized.  Apart from Madison Park, there is not a safe, public location for residents to take their dogs or to simply enjoy the open area due to the homeless population in the park. Activating this space will remedy that issue and open it for use of the general population.
