The Forest Park Dog Park has been closed for a number of weeks due to the risk of spreading canine influenza. Cook County Department of Animal Control still warns that caution should be used when grouping animals together as the virus can pass easily and a carrier may not show signs of infection. As such the Village will be posting the following notice upon reopening its park:
WELCOME TO THE FOREST PARK DOG PARK
The Village of Forest Park takes no responsibility
for the transmission of canine diseases passed from one animal to another while enjoying the confines of the park.
Although the Village requires standard vaccinations
before issuing licenses for the park use,
we cannot guarantee, nor prevent the spread of canine influenza
or other canine diseases.
ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK.
