Who comprises a family? Parents? Children? Is that the sum total of a family? Not at all. There are grandparents and other extended family members, of course. And in Skokie, IL, they recognize that not all family members walk on two feet. So when they were building their beautiful parks, one was a pooch park. At Pooch Park, the whole family can play---Fido can even be let off the leash for awhile.1 Everyone can also go to gorgeous McNally Park. While the younger children play at the playgrounds and the teenagers play baseball, Mom and Dad can set up a campsite. Yep, this park has all of those amenities. Talk about one stop shopping. It just doesn't get any better than this.
