La Junta is a small town in Arizona, and despite its small size, it holds a lot of history within its borders. The city's name is Spanish for "The Junction", since it was located on the crossing of the Sante Fe Trail and a pioneer road to Pueblo, 60 miles to the west. Dog lovers and pups will fall in love with this small town thanks to its large dog-friendly spaces and 3 animal clinics.
City Park is the most popular place to go to in the city. With 16 acres of open space, a perimeter trail, fishing lake, and shaded sitting areas, pups and their humans are constant visitors. There are enclosed tennis courts that dogs are allowed on, restrooms, a gazebo, a playground, and a picnic area. Pups have to remain on a leash at the park, but can enjoy water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.
Potter Park is on the northern side of the city, and has a large area not just for playing and walking, but for other recreational activities, like ball games, swimming, and picnics. The park's trail wraps around the park over .6 miles, with grassy areas, shaded sitting areas, water fountains, and clean-up stations. Leashed pups are always welcome in the park, but must be cleaned up after.
