Another New Course???

My brother-in-law said that he was pretty sure he saw a crew of workers installing new baskets in the Skokie North Shore Sculpture Park east of McCormick Blvd around Dempster.

Anyone here have info on this possible new course?

Everyone that came up to me was excited about the course being put in. Granted they were about 4-5 dog walkers and a couple of joggers.
Are those damn hippies leaving there dogs to run wild?!?

Also if you guys decide to play, please bare in mind that there are two windows of time (6am to 9am and 7pm to 10pm) where off leash dog walking is permitted.

Be super careful. Play it while you can...
FWIW, I found the following "dog restriction info" on the Katherine Legge Memorial Web Site

March 1 through October 31
5 am to 9 am &
7 pm to 10 pm

November 1 through February 28
5 am to 10 am &
5 pm to 10 pm

Hopefully this info will also be posted on the DGCR info page for the course.

I heard about baskets on McCormick down toward Devon. Maybe they're putting in a course all along that bike path? :hopeful smiley: I'll be driving right by there every day this fall, it's 10 minutes from where I work.

I've only been on the weekends (and the mornings). They are usually crazy busy. However, majority of the dog "activity" is on the south side of the creek. I am not sure how much that side comes into play, if at all. Some of the dogs play in the creek though.

I don't think anyone on here needs to be warned or concerned about anything, I am very conserned about the other 33% of dgers though. It only takes one person to ruin it for everyone. It will be easiest played after 10am.

Thanks for the update John. Any holes on the east side of the river?
