Pets in the Parks
Don’t leave Fido at home! Dogs get cabin fever in any season, not just wintertime. All Metro Parks have pet-friendly trails for dogs and cats.
Parks with fenced-in dog parks are a great place for your best furry friend to meet and greet other four-footed canines. A few of the dog parks feature agility equipment if you just want a fun, challenging activity to do with your dog. We’ve not mentioned felines, but leashed domestic cats are also welcome on the pet trails.
