The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Grand Rapids
Pet Parade—Tall Timber Days
Celebrate the Grand Rapids area’s logging history at Tall Timber Days! The first weekend in August, thousands of festival-goers flock to see chainsaw carving demonstrations, a lumberjack show, and live music in downtown Grand Rapids. Leashed, well-behaved, social pets can enjoy the festivities with their fur-less pack leaders. And don’t miss out on the opportunity to show off your pooch—and win a prize—during the Pet Parade! Pre-registration is required and costumes are strongly encouraged. Prizes are awarded in the following categories: most unique, best dressed, best in show, cutest, and overall best.
From the Itasca County Fairgrounds in Grand Rapids, hop on the Mesabi Trail and hike, bike, or ski 130 miles from the Mississippi to the Boundary Waters all the way to Ely, MN! Leashed dogs are welcome on the trail, built mostly on retired rail lines. The Mesabi Trail passes open pit iron mines and lakes, through forests and meadows, and over rivers and streams. A daily or annual pass is required for wheeled devices—bicycles, roller blades, skateboards, and the like. Be sure to pack enough water for you and your pup!
The tap room at Klockow Brewing is dog-friendly to friendly pooches! So, there’s no excuse not to stop by and sample one (or more) brews from Grand Rapid’s only brewery. Owners Andy and Tasha Klockow want to create a welcoming, family-friendly tap room where people can gather to listen to live music, play board games, and enjoy good conversation. And that welcoming mentality extends to furry companions!
Grand Rapids Dog Park at Veterans Park
The Grand Rapids Dog Park provides pups of all sizes a place to play and exercise off-leash! The dog park is located within Veterans Park, where land was set aside by the city and $20,000 was raised by volunteers to fence in and develop the area. A special fenced-in area for small dogs makes this park accessible for canines of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments. Situated along the Mississippi—on the site of a former logging camp—Veterans Park isn’t just for the dogs! The playground is popular with human pups, and the picnic area is great for rest stops and lunch breaks.
