Juneau, as most know, is the capital city of the state of Alaska and is the second largest city in the United States. The city is on the panhandle of Alaska and the Gastineau Channel, where the cruise ships’ docks and the Mount Roberts Tramway to Douglas Island are located. There are an estimated 32,406 people living in Juneau with a few thousand dogs, and there are many dog-friendly activities in town.
The city revamped Cope Park on Capital and Calhoun Streets to make it more people and dog-friendly. There is a dog park the size of a baseball field (it used to be a baseball field), running water, barbeque/picnic areas, covered shelters, climbing structures, and a gorgeous blue lagoon. There are also restrooms, playgrounds for the kids, and so much more.
Point Bridget State Park on Willoughby Avenue is also a great park for dogs with tons of stuff to do for both of you. This park has over 2,500 acres of hiking and playing in the middle of an oasis of meadows, cliffs, and beautiful beaches on the sea. It even has an actual rainforest and a salmon stream.
Mendenhall Wetlands is a game refuge that is very dog-friendly and has a huge wildlife population that will give you and Fido a chance to see all kinds of creatures. Just at the end of Radcliffe Road along the shoreline in Juneau City. You and your furbaby will love it!
