Eureka Springs is a unique small town in northwest Arkansas. The entire town is on the National Register of Historic Places, with previous names being "The Magic City", "Stairstep Town" and even "Little Switzerland of America". Humans and dogs alike should take a moment to paws and look into all the dog-friendly areas in the city, with some special options like dog parks and one veterinarian.
It won't be hard to find the Eureka Springs Bark Park, a park recently created to allow dog residents to play off-leash throughout the park. With over an acre of land, the park is separated into two sections for smaller and bigger dogs, and Fido will get access to dog-sized water fountains, clean-up stations, trash bins, and free toys!
Residents and visitors usually come to Eureka Springs for the Beaver Dam Site Park, that sides along the shoreline of Beaver Lake and next to the dam. The park is dog-friendly to dogs who remain on a leash, and offers beautiful lake views, trails, and scenic mountains. There are benches and trash bins at the park.
Surrounded by mountains and natural land, it's no wonder Eureka Springs has become such a dog-friendly destination!
The City Center of Eureka Springs has a lot of historic buildings and is known for its twisting mountainous roads. Among the city life of Eureka lies another gem: The Lake Leatherwood City Park, a 1600-acre park that surrounds the 85-acre lake of Leatherwood. There are about 5.7 miles of trails that run throughout the park, with extra features including fishing areas, a small marina and boat launch, and paddle boat rentals. Dogs are welcome throughout the park to enjoy the scenic trails of the thick forests, but must remain on a leash. Dogs are not allowed in the water, but are welcome on the paddle boat rentals! Other features include water fountains and benches.
