Gadsden may have the appearance of a small town, but it used to be one of the largest and most important towns in the state. The area was known for its industrial advances, and has since been honored as an All-American City and is known as the "City of Champions". Gadsden is also an all-dog city, thanks to its abundance in dog-friendly parks, trails, and walkable downtown.
The Central Recreation Area is the largest and most dog-friendly park in the city, thanks to its rolling fields, shaded picnic areas, and fenced-in recreational fields. There are tennis courts, 6 baseball fields, a pavilion for picnics, a playground, restrooms, and access to Black Creek for fishing and swimming. This doggy heaven is dog-friendly, but requires pups to remain on a leash inside the park.
Right along the Coosa River is the Gadsden's Moragne Park, a scenic area that has scattered trees and open space. The area is dog-friendly with lots of popular features like a playground, picnic area, shaded walkways, a pavilion, restrooms, and basketball court. Leash up Fido before coming here and remember to bring some water and clean-up bags!
With two animal hospitals and a large amount of love for its four-legged residents, Gadsden will show you how much it will love and take care of your fur baby.
