Forestry and the lumber industry brought prosperity and people to Blytheville in its early days of its founding in 1879. As forests were cleared, cotton farming grew, with soybeans and rice following later. The area’s hot, humid and long summers, mixed with extremely mild winters make it an ideal place for growing such crops. Blytheville also has five veterinary clinics to help your pooch stay in furrific shape!
One furrific Blytheville outdoor area to visit with your pup is Nelson Park! This newly renovated community park is a pawsome place to spend time with your leashed pooch! The park has lush, manicured grass where you and your dog can play, plus there are tons of mature trees that make this a cool place to hang out even in the heat of the summer! Two-legged kiddos will love all the playground equipment, too! There are picnic tables around the park in both the sunshine and the shade, plus barbecue grills.
Traveling through the area? You and your furry companion are welcome at Blytheville’s Comfort Inn and Suites! The hotel has fur-iendly rooms where your pup can curl up with you for the night for a nominal fee.
Visiting and local dogs agree, Blytheville is pawsitively pawsome!
