Pet Friendly Duck Creek
Duck Creek Duck Creek is doggie (and people) heaven. It is a very large and completely natural off leash park that people enjoy just as much as their dog. It consists of several acres of an easy hike which can be done in a 1/2 hour or so loop through woods and meadows. A wooded trail meanders along a year round creek which runs fast in winter and slow in summer for dog swimming. There is also an open meadow to play ball or frisbee or chase the dog, and grassy areas under big shade trees to have a picnic if you dare -- doggies will almost always join in! It is paradise year round for dogs and dog owners alike. See Details
