    Gateway Arch National Park

    A lot of park paths and city streets to walk near the arch. You can also take them down near the river.

    A Very Dog-Friendly Park

    Gateway Arch National Park was the first park I took Gizmo and Stormy to on our road trip this past summer. It was a great place to walk them with minimal crowds and great photo opportunities.

    Beautiful Spot

    This is a great place to hang out with your dog if you’re in St. Louis. The views are great and seeing the arch up close is worth it at least once. We paid $10 to park near the river and then we were able to walk up the steps to the huge grassy park underneath the arch. I would recommend a retractable leash even if you don’t normally use one, because there is a ton of space. I saw a dog or two off-leash, which is against the rules of the park.

    A must see in a busy city

    We took our 2 dogs and viewed the arch from the park. It was a beautiful park. Only service dogs are allowed in the building and up into the arch.

    Great views, clean park

    So many directions to walk and take in all the views. Definitely wish i brought a retractable leash because there is the space to let them explore

    Lots of space to walk

    Beautifully kept park and your dog can go everywhere with you (aside from inside the arch).

    Beautiful park

    Seeing the arch up close was really neat. The surrounding park area has lots of grassy areas and plenty of walking trails.

    Very Dog Friendly

    there are lots of paths to walk your dog gone as well as lots of grassy areas to relax and play with your pup. There were even clean up stations and the vendors had water bowls for your dog. Very beautiful park!
