Nestled along Old Cleveland Highway is Laurel Dog Park, a dog park that caters to the needs of its canines by having separate areas for large and small dogs. Owners will love the plentiful benches and shade, as well as access to fresh water for their pups and potty bags to make cleaning up after their dogs a breeze. Dogs will love rolling in the grass and meeting new friends.
Two Mile Creek Park on Bethel Road is a beautiful park embroidering Lake Lanier. Two Mile Creek Park has spots for picnicking, fishing, boating, swimming, and walking. Dogs are welcome, but they must be under their owner’s control at all times and cleaned up after. Lots of wildlife can be spotted at Two Mile Creek Park, so dogs who like to chase other critters should be kept on their leashes.
Just a hop, skip, and jump away from Gainesville is the city of Flowery Branch, which is where Hall County Parks & Leisure is located. Hall County Parks & Leisure has indoor and outdoor facilities. The indoor facilities have basketball courts, dance rooms, small gym, and an indoor track. The outdoor amenities are where your dog will have a blast. There are two completely fenced-in parks – one for small dogs and one for large dogs. There’s no admission fee, and the park is open from sunrise to sunset. If you want your dog to play with other dogs at the dog park, the best time to go is on weekdays between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
