Athens Park is located on S. Broadway Avenue and is open from sunrise to sunset. Your furry pal will need to stay on his leash inside the park but the twenty acres feature baseball fields, a gym, a swimming pool, a community center, a computer lab, and seasonal activities for kids of all ages.  The park offers well-manicured lawns, trees, benches and tons and tons of fresh air. During the summer season, always be aware that the park will be more crowded than normal with children.  These areas are also jam-packed with other local visitors and pedestrians, you'll want to exercise caution in general.


Other greenways include Helen Keller Park and the larger, yet more exclusive Chester Washington Golf Course. While neither of these areas has specific avenues for dogs, they may be good places for a quick break. Just be sure to obey leash laws in each area to avoid any incidents with off-leash dogs.
