Ever want to take your dog for a walk or a run near Luxury Student Living? This is not a problem in Edwardsville. You need to have your dog on a leash on city streets, according to municipal law. However, the city also offers a dog run at Joe Glik Park that allows Mitzi or Pooch to be off-leash as well. Joe Glik Park in total is more than 42 acres of lovely property on East Lake Drive. In addition to the dog run, it sports 2500 feet of walking, biking, skating trails, two fishing lakes, concrete fishing deck, picnic pavilions, a comfort station, playground, sand volleyball courts, and areas for open play.
The city does not require dog permits to use the dog area in the park. The park is open from dawn to dusk year around.
If you want another place to frolic, walk, and run with Mitzi or Pooch, the Madison County Transit Goshen (MCT Goshen) Trail is just minutes away. The MCT Goshen Trail is one of the former railroad beds that have been transformed into trails by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. (There are more than 1,600 of these trails nationwide.) Because of their former use as railroads, they are both scenic and maintained, and offer a great place for dogs! And of course no permits are needed here either.
How to get there – you need to be on I-55. From there, take Exit 18 to Illinois Route 162 West. Drive 1 mile and turn right onto Old Troy Road. Parking will be 500 feet ahead, on the right.
