Dog Walking in Visalia

If you live in Visalia, California, you’re no stranger to the area’s many dog-friendly attractions! Whether you’re looking to score some off-leash time in one of Visalia’s fenced-in dog parks, or hit the trails and see glimpses of the surrounding mountains and rivers, you’ll have options to enjoy the day with your four-legged best friend.

The Cody Kelly Bark Park is located in Plaza Park, which features a golf course, two playgrounds, a fishing pond, bike path, horseshoe pits, and so much more. The Bark Park section is fenced in and often full of friendly people and pets! Featuring shade from the hot California sun, a water fountain, tennis balls, and a sanitation station, the Cody Kelly Bark Park has everything you need.

Visalia’s smaller dog park is called the Seven Oaks Bark Park. It does not have separate large and small dog areas like its larger counterpart, but this 1-acre fenced-in park is perfect for dogs of all sizes which might want a less crowded place to play. Sunset Park is also noted for being dog-friendly towards leashed pooches.

For the best hikes in the area, you’ll need to drive out of the city, but the views are well worth it. King’s Canyon is an easy, 4.5-mile trail that offers amazing views of Redwood Canyon, as well as local wildflowers and wildlife. For something longer, try the 13.5-mile Twin Lakes Trail – be sure watch out for bears, and if camping overnight, check out the lakes full of brook trout. One thing’s for sure – your pooch is bound to have a blast in Visalia!

Don’t make the faux paw of not visiting downtown Visalia; there’s much to do! If you want to bring Fido along, make sure you check out Pita Kabob, which serves Mediterranean classics such as falafel, kabobs, and gyros. Your dog is more than welcome to dine with you on the outdoor patio, but a leash – and a strong willpower to avoid those adorable puppy-dog eyes – is required. If you just need a quick power-up, check out the nearby Starbucks, which also has a dog-friendly patio. Ask for a “puppoccino” to receive some whipped cream for your pet. Your dog will definitely thank you.

If your dog is on the smaller side and gets nervous around larger dogs, you’re in luck; there’s a separate section of the park where small dogs can enjoy some stress-free fun. Other features of the park include benches for pet-owners, running water so that your pet can stay well hydrated, and plenty of shade so that your pet can cool down. Your dog is sure to have a blast!

Located in southern Visalia, this neighborhood is sure to be fun for you and your pet! Dogs are welcome in Mooney Grove Park, which features walking trails, a playground, and a historical village. Admission to the park is six dollars per vehicle, and your dog must remain on a leash at all times. After exploring the park, head over to Panera Bread, where your four-legged fur-iend can join you on the outdoor patio. If Fido’s been a good boy during your day out, don’t let it go to the dogs; swing by the local pet store and grab him a toy or two.
