Spring is right around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to find some fun new places for you and Fido to explore. You and your pup can spend time at these new dog parks, dog bars, breweries and pet-friendly attractions that combine all three!
New Dog Parks and Pet-Friendly Attractions: March
Posted by Caitlin Tolliday
The extremely popular dog park, bar and restaurant combination, Bar K, has expanded to Oklahoma City. Featuring a two-acre off-leash dog park, a 10,000-square-foot indoor play area, and a bar and restaurant, this is sure to be the perfect stop for you and Fido to have fun and socialize. Locals can purchase a membership while visitors can opt for a day pass. While your pup romps around with his canine pals, you can enjoy handcrafted cocktails, draft beer and a wide variety of food options. There’s even a dog menu, because Fido is sure to be hungry after all that play.
After such a fun-filled day, you and your pooch can get some rest at Aloft Oklahoma City Downtown Bricktown, which is next to a self-serve dog wash and dog park.
Dogs & Cats Walkway & Sculpture Garden
Leash up your pup and gawk in awe at the artistry on display at the Dogs & Cats Walkway & Sculpture Garden at Maurice A. Ferré Park in Downtown Miami. This outdoor art installation features 52 oversized aluminum sculptures - 26 dogs and 26 cats - which are all painted by local artists. The bright and colorful sculptures have an educational component as well, allowing you to scan a QR code and learn more about each respective breed. This one-acre garden and permanent exhibit recently celebrated its official grand opening, so now is the perfect time to stop by.
Make a weekend out of your visit by booking a room at the ultra-pet-friendly Kimpton Epic Hotel. Dogs of any size are welcome to stay for free, and they have treats, bowls, toys and waste bags at the front desk.
Good Dog Bar & Dog Park - Tuscaloosa
Don’t let any spring showers stop Fido’s fun. Pups can play in any weather at Good Dog Bar & Dog Park’s covered turf play yard in Tuscaloosa. While four-legged friends sniff around the tunnels and climbing structures, you can sip on beer and wine while watching the big game on the numerous TVs. Don’t worry about getting too distracted, the trained staff, called Bark Rangers, are on hand to keep an eye on the pups.
Spend the night at Hotel Indigo Tuscaloosa Downtown which is conveniently located across from a large field for pet relief.
Woofs Canine Club & Indoor Dog Park
The weather can’t stop your pup’s playtime plans at the recently opened Woofs Canine Club & Indoor Dog Park in Webster, NY. As the first indoor dog park in the area, your pup can make new canine friends and enjoy 6,000 square feet of pet-friendly play space while practicing on obstacles and agility equipment. They offer multiple membership options to fit Fido’s schedule.
Once your pup is all tuckered out, catch some Zs at the conveniently located Super 8 by Wyndham Webster Rochester.
Adopted Dog Brewing
Share a pint with your pup at Adopted Dog Brewing, the first brewery located in the city of Lafayette, LA. Dogs are welcome on the patio and in the spacious yard outside this family-friendly brewery. Brews are crafted in-house, with options including the Doberman Dark Lager and the Oatmeal Creampie Porter. They also offer a food menu that features tasty items like Beer Cheese Nachos, Southern Fried Fish and Chips, and Brussels Bacon Balsamic Flatbread. If your pup is a rescue, you can bring a photo of them to add to the adopted dogs wall.
Head to bed at Staybridge Suites Lafayette Airport, where you and Fido can snuggle up after your exciting evening.
Pierre Community Dog Park
Bring Fido to the recently opened Pierre Community Dog Park in Pierre, SD for some off-leash play and exercise. At 1.95 acres, the city’s first dog park features three fenced sections, one solely for large dogs, another for small dogs, and a common area. There’s plenty of open space in each section for canine companions to run and play. Future plans include water fountains, canine obstacles and benches. A grand opening celebration for the dog park will be planned later this year.
Book a trip with Fido so you can attend the grand opening, and stay at this spacious and secluded lodge on a 3800-acre ranch. Dogs of any size are welcome for no extra fee. The property offers access to the Missouri River so pups can swim, and at night you can enjoy incredible stargazing thanks to zero light pollution.
