Pet Friendly Walnut Woods State Park in West Des Moines, IA
Walnut Woods State Park is pet-friendly. You are welcome to bring Fido with you to enjoy the 260 acres of woodland along the banks of Raccoon River. The two and a half miles of trails that weave through the black walnut trees, the largest surviving natural stand of these trees in the country, are a great attraction for dogs and their owners. Dogs are allowed on the trails, as long as they are on a leash under six feet and you clean up any mess they make after them. Walnut Woods State Park is open every day of the week from 6am to 9pm.
Pet Friendly Brenton Arboretum in Dallas Center, IA
The Brenton Arboretum is a 143-acre landscape in the heart of Iowa agricultural land. We have thousands of trees (all labeled, of course), beautiful prairies and wildflower meadows, streams and ponds, and miles of grassy trails. Our mission is to bring joy through the beauty and knowledge of the natural world of trees. Well behaved dogs (who respond appropriately to voice commands) are allowed to be off leash. It is up to the owners of the dog to use their best judgment and accept full responsibility when deciding whether or not to let their dog off leash. Dogs are allowed to swim and play in streams and ponds; humans are not. Dogs of non-members are allowed for $5 per dog, per night. Open 9am to sunset.
