People with a furry family member will find many places to see and many things to do in the small town of Denville. Three veterinary clinics serve the routine and emergency health needs of canine companions. The town has dedicated so many green spots for a person and a four-legged friend to visit together for some outdoor exercise.
Six city parks make it easy to gets some free leisure time with a leashed pup. Cook's Pond has twelve acres of trees, grass, and landscaped spaces in which to walk and perhaps have a picnic or a family party in a rented pavilion. The pond is popular with area anglers and is stocked with several different species of fish.
Muriel Hepner Nature Park is an access point for one of the three walking trails in Denville. These trails are 1.5, 3 and 5 miles in length and are almost completely paved. Muriel Hepner includes a fishing lake and a natural walking path around it gives a person with a leashed pup an easy stroll and some fresh air.
In town, a person with a pup can try out one of the many dog-friendly restaurants. Thatcher McGhees, located at 53 Broadway, has some filling Irish-American pub fare. You and your leashed pup can relax and at one of the outdoor tables and enjoy lunch and dinner sandwiches and simple but tasty dishes like Shepherd's pie and burgers. Live music adds to the fun ambiance on the weekends.
