Northport is a larger city on the north side of the Black Warrior River, and 60 miles from the major city of Birmingham. The first building in the city was erected in 1850, and is still standing today. The area brings in a lot of tourism and visitors thanks to the annual events and festivals that welcomes pups. Northport also provides 5 animal hospitals, and lots of natural and developed parks.
Kentuck Park is the largest developed park in the city, and has over 30 acres of open space and recreational fields that are surrounded by thick woods. There are 3 different fenced-in baseball fields, enclosed tennis courts, paved walkways, restrooms, picnic pavilions, and grilling facilities. Dogs must remain on a leash while inside the park, but can play safely in the fenced-in fields or in the open spaces, with access to water fountains, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, and benches.
The Van De Graaff Park and Arboretum is on the west side of town, and features over 50 acres of protected woods, swamps, lakes, and open fields. This natural area offers multiple trails made from dirt and concrete that wind throughout the park. There are fishing spots, a boat launch, and picnic area for park goers and leash pups, with additional features like water fountains, benches, and trash bins.
Not only will Northport provide residents with plenty of parks and trails, but also a safe and fun place to play and walk Fido.
