Since its founding in 1854, Omaha has grown into a city that draws in new residents and visitors alike. There are five Fortune 1000 headquarters based in Omaha, and the city’s Henry Doorly Zoo brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors annually, and is known as one of the most popular attractions in all of Nebraska, seeing over 25 million guests in the last four decades alone.

Omaha’s park system was ranked 12th in the nation on a 2014 list. The city’s oldest remaining park was established in 1872, and the largest single park covers more than 1,400 acres of land. The Lewis & Clark Landing is a park that sits just north of downtown and features open spaces, paved walkways, and historic exhibits based on the 1804 expedition. If you are looking for a nice place to walk your dog, take in the sights at this park or explore the trails that connect it to Miller’s Landing and the Heartland of America Park.

Canine park visitors will definitely want to stop by Hefflinger or Hanscom Dog Parks. These parks were created by the Omaha Dog Park Advocates in cooperation with the city, and they have everything a dog needs to have some fun in the sun. With two fenced-in areas for large dogs and one for smaller dogs, these parks ensure that all pups can play safely and happily.

Downtown Northeast has some pretty interesting pieces of history attached to it. The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail allows people to walk in the footsteps of the famous explorers, and it makes for a great place to hike with your dog! There are beautiful sights to see as you and your furry friend trek through the many hills and rivers that this path goes through. If you stay on it long enough, you'll cross over state lines into Iowa for an interstate adventure with your hound. Remember to bring along some water for both you and Rover, as this trail heads out of the city and into the wilderness!

Have a day on the town with man's best friend in Eagle Run! You can start at Hefflinger Dog Park, a totally pawesome dog run made out of what used to be baseball​ fields. This off-leash area features a section for small dogs, some smaller trees, and ample seating for human visitors. The spacious park has a tendency to get muddy, so you might want to bring a towel along for and after play clean up. Poop bags and waste bins are provided on site, and there is a water fountain--however, it is not always turned on, so it's a good idea to plan accordingly. After fun in the sun, you and your pup are welcome to enjoy Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom, an eatery that boasts over 100 beers, good eats, and a dog-friendly patio!

There are lots of lush, green spots worth checking out with your four-legged friend in Elmwood Park. The area itself is named after the large park located in the center of the neighborhood. You and your pooch can go for a walk on any of the paved trails that run through the grounds. There are also shelters and picnic areas if you're feeling more like taking it easy. Memorial Park is not far away, and offers a great area for on-leash outings. Take your pooch through the manicured gardens or walk past the large monuments that this park commemorates.

If you're looking for a fun way to spend the day with your pup, Westside has some great options. The entrance to Big Papio Trail can be found in Westside. This Rails to Trails funded railroad-turned-walking-path goes through almost 10 miles of city terrain. Leashed hounds are welcome on the paved pathway, that both starts and ends in a lush, green park! These grassy areas are perfect for pit stops or water breaks, but you'll have to bring your own as there aren't any public fountains. As with all Rails to Trails projects, the entrance has nearby parking and an info map available online. Why not get outside and enjoy the city scapes with your favorite furry friend in the Westside neighborhood?
