In the most northern part of the Atlanta metropolitan area lies the small city of Kennesaw, Georgia. Kennesaw is a unique place in many ways. The city is a popular tourist destination as the town played a significant role in the Civil War and is home to many historic sites and museums. As a suburban city, the quality of life in Kennesaw is also considered above standard.
Life is also good for the pet population in Kennesaw, Georgia. There are, for instance, many opportunities to walk the dogs. The Swift-Cantrell Park is one of the highlights in the area. This magnificent recreational park offers picnic areas, playgrounds for kids, a skate park and various bicycle and hiking trails.
The most interesting part of the Swift-Cantrell Park for dog owners is the Frank Boone Dog Park. While dogs are allowed in the 42-acre community park, they have to be on a leash. The dog park, however, provides the opportunity for dogs to run around and explore without the limitations of a leash.
Another site that nature lovers, history buffs, and dog owners in Kennesaw treasure is the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. This historic park hosts an extensive network of nature trails and is home to several Civic War battlefields. Dogs are more than welcome, and in some cases, preferred or celebrated to join their owners on a leash.
