Known as “The River City” of Alabama, the city of Decatur is in both Limestone and Morgan counties. Decatur owes part of its success to the river because in the early 19th century the railroad and boating traffic gave it the boost it needed to grow. The city was founded in 1820 and has almost 56,000 people living there who have approximately 12,537 dogs as pets. With that many dogs in town, you can feel comfortable bringing Fido since there will be plenty for him to do.

Decatur has some great outdoor adventures for you and your furbaby. The city itself runs two dog parks. Fido Fields is in Fairview Park and has two acres, double fences, separated large and small dog areas, water, and benches. Nelson Park is a three-acre haven with an electronic gate and separated large and small dogs sides.

Mill Creek Dog Park on Balch Road has almost 1 ½ acres of fun, including separated areas for big and small dogs. There is also drinking water provided and dog-waste bags, trash cans, and dog waste dispensers.

Creekwood Dog Park has water pumps, big and little dogs sides, benches, picnic tables, and a great obstacle course for the pooches to exercise on. There are also walking trails, splash pools, and playground equipment for the kids too.

    If your pup is looking for an excuse to impress the ladies with his spiffy, new bandana and you happen to have just run out of organic kale, The Market at Pepper Place is sure to make you both happy. Meet other dogs (and humans) while perusing the finest selection of homegrown goods, crafts, and produce. Located in the trendy Southside district of downtown Birmingham, this lively farmer's market is the nose-bumping, tail-wagging, weekend event of the season, running April through December. Pick up a pack of Blind Dog Biscuits and stop at Railroad Park, just a few blocks away, on the way to your next adventure.

    Delano Park is located just east of downtown Decatur, offering lots of room for families to play. It's a great choice if you're looking for a family-friendly activity that will allow the kids and pets to have fun together. Walk your pup around the perimeter of the park while kids play on the playground or in the splashpad. The large open green space in the center of the park is great for a game of tag or fetch. The park also offers a beautiful sculpture garden, full or plants and thirsty butterflies. While dogs aren't allowed in that section of the park, it's just one more reason your friends and family will want to tag along.

    #3 Cedar Lake

    Safeguarding a 35,000 acre piece of land along the Tennessee River in an area of Decatur known as Cedar Lake, the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge is known for being a breeding ground for migratory birds like the Sandhill Crane. However, it's also open to the public for bird watching, wildlife photography, dog walking (wink-wink), etc. Humans are welcome to join their dogs as long as they're wearing a leash. Hike any of the 5 trails weaving along the shoreline. For a fresher perspective, bring a canoe and enjoy the sights and sounds of this pristine gem while paddling the westward flowing water. There are six designated launch sites approved for small boats and canoes.

    Why did the dog cross the river? Yes, we know... to get to the other side. But what's on the other side? The correct answer is Mill Creek Dog Park! Take a quick 20 minute ride over the Tennessee River to visit the closest designated dog park to Decatur, Alabama. The 1.4 acre fenced-in off-leash puppy playground offers free drinking water and picnic tables for parents. The park is divided into an area for large dogs over 25 lbs and one for small dogs under 25 lbs. Medium-sized dogs that weigh 25 lbs can either choose a side or work as ambassadors for the good of the community, digging holes on the left and sniffing butts on the right.
