The Homer Township Board is pleased to announce the opening of the new Dog
Park located on the south side of 151st Street between Cedar and Gougar Roads.
The park is a component of the Trantina Farm, which is the first parcel to be
developed as part of Homer Township’s Open Space Program. Funding was made
possible in part with an OSLAD Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural
Resources. The Board and Trantina Farm Committee have established the posted
rules and provided waste receptacles for park users.
The southern portion of the Trantina Farm site is about 20 acres with the Dog
Park comprising about 2 acres. The canine park is fenced and divided in two
sections: one for smaller dogs less than 15" at the shoulder or 30 lbs. or less
and the other for larger dogs. Parking, benches, a pavilion and a mowed, looped
trail surrounding the Dog Park are available for horses, dogs and humans. The
view from the trail offers wonderful vistas of the rolling terrain and
wildlife. While the southern part of Trantina Farm site caters to our domestic
friends, the northern approximate 30 acre portion is better suited for humans
offering a playground, picnic area, limestone trail, restroom, fire pit,
interpretive center, gardens, native prairie restoration, wildlife viewing and
