Kirby, Arkansas has always been a small town. It was a farming community before the Civil War and had the potential to grow, but the war took a lot out of the community. The opening of the first gas station in the early 1900s coupled by the job openings at the dam made it possible for more settlers to come in.
Today, Kirby is small, but it does have a lot to offer families with fur babies. The community is welcoming and doesn't lack Southern hospitality. There may not be a groomer within town limits, but there are four within twenty miles and three vets within that same distance.
Kirby is close to some special attractions that are worth checking out. Lake Ouachita State Park is about forty-five miles away, making it the pawfect place for a day outing or weekend getaway. There are hiking trails to explore, fish to catch, and birds to watch. You and your pup will have a barktastic adventure here!
The Arkadelphia's Feaster Trail is a 2.7-mile trail that's ruffly 30 miles away. It is part of the Rails-to-Trails conservation efforts. This trail follows the old railroad that used to run through here.
The tiny town of Kirby may not have much to offer pup parents, but dog-friendly fun is just a bone's throw away!
Daisy State Park features three trail systems with paths of varying difficulty to choose from. You can start here and walk as far as you want, even continuing your journey on nearby trail systems. The 103 tent sites are paw-friendly so that you can make your adventure last all weekend. If your pup likes the water, you can canoe and kayak. There is no limit on the activities that you and your pup can do. Just make sure you have your pup on a leash unless you are on the water. The only place you can't take your fur baby is inside the restrooms.
Do you love all things shiny? Would you like to collect diamonds of all colors and sizes? Then a ten-mile trip over to the Crater of Diamonds State Park is for you. There are multiple sites where you can look for diamonds on your own or with a guide! If you don't want to search for diamonds, you can enjoy the trails or cool off in the pool. Your dog is allowed to go anywhere but inside the buildings. Your dog must be leashed in this park. The short trip is well worth it for this diamond in the "ruff"!
When you need a good bark park, nothing else will do. The closest bark park is in Hot Springs, which is about forty miles or so away. The Hot Springs Bark Park is an off-leash dog park with all the amenities that you would expect from a great park. There are water fountains, cleaning stations, and plenty of toys. You can relax on the benches while your dog plays. The other pet parents are friendly and ready for doggie play dates! The only downside is that there isn't much grass -- the park is mulched, but it still gets muddy after a rain. The water is shut off in the winter.
Hot Springs National Park is known for its healing natural hot springs that make the stress melt away. Take a mutts-needed digital detox while your mind and body relax for a while.

Don't forget your binoculars because this is a great bird-watching site. This is an on-leash park and trail system. You will want to bring plenty of water with you.
