Here are some reviews listed on Google:

“Enjoy walking my dog here. I like that they have poop bags and garbage cans scattered around. I LOVE that they have drinking fountains for dogs!!!!”

“Didn’t go to the actual water park but loved the lake, the trails, the dog park! We had a picnic and watched soccer and it was tons of fun for my kids, husband, and myself!”

“Great place to bring the whole family and the dog. Kids enjoy the playground. Everyone here is friendly. There’s so much the kids could do here. All around nice, safe park.”

ORLAND GRASSLAND

Address: 167th Street & S La Grange Road, Tinley Park, IL 60487

Enjoy 13 miles of trails that overlook 750 acres of open prairie. This area was converted from farmland after habitat restoration efforts began in 2002. If you are a nature lover, you’ll definitely appreciate the unique wildflowers, native grasses, special plants, rare birds and many other beautiful butterflies you can only find in this grassland complex.

However, reviews online have mentioned tick issues, so please be aware of this, especially if walking through any tall grass.
