Karban Dog Park

Berwyn Park dog owners have requested that the Berwyn Park District designate a permanent off-leash dog area within its park system. These types of areas provide the opportunity for unstructured play and specific forms of dog training. They also allow for a form of interaction between dogs and owners/handlers that is not possible when dogs remain leashed; e.g., “off-lead” training or tracking, playing Frisbee or “fetch”, and socializing with other dogs.

As the Park District developed a Strategic Plan, a community survey response showed an interest by local residents to create a dog friendly recreational area. With the acquisition of Karban Park in 2010 and the subsequent petition presented to the Board of Commissioners by residents in 2012, the Karban Park site has been designated and is being constructed for use as Berwyn’s first off leash dog park area.

Permits can be obtained at Freedom Park by appointment only. Please reach out to Saray Carrillo at 708-788-1701 or scarrillo@berwynparks.org to schedule an appointment.
Permit Fee: $35/year for one dog. $5 for each additional dog, up to three total dogs.

Permits are only available for Berwyn Residents.


Dog Park Hours: Sunrise to Sunset.
