Grant Skate Park

In 2014 Chicago debuted Grant Skate Park, one of the city’s largest skateboard parks. Located in the southwest corner of Grant Park adjacent to the famous Agora art installation, Grant Skate Park is made for skateboarders, not dogs. We don’t suggest you try to get your dog on wheels, instead surrounding the skate park is more than an acre of open grass.

While the sound of skateboarders can be loud and distracting to some dogs, the ample grass surrounding the skate park allows for plenty of space to run around.


  • Popularity:
    The skate park is popular and tends to get more crowded the later in the day you arrive so it is suggested that you get there early if possible. This park is best used before noon if you want to avoid crowds.


Officially located at 9th Street and Columbus Drive, Grant Skate Park is easily accessible from any direction. The corner of South Michigan Avenue and Roosevelt is just 100 yards from the skate park.
