Warner Robins got its’ unique name from a situation in which a nearby air force base was to be named after the esteemed mentor (Augustine Warner Robins) of a coronel until he learned that air force bases must be named after the closest town. So, the town changed its’ name, creating both the town of Warner Robins and Warner Robins Air Force Base. This accommodating southern town is full of friendly people, beautiful places, and tons of pet-lovers.
Although there are talks of creating a dog park in Warner Robins, currently one does not exist. The nearby Robins Air Force Base does have a dog run, complete with a large and small dog section, as well as empty water bowls. Owners will enjoy the shade and comfortable benches. Remember to bring your own doggie bags and fresh water!
Warner Robins has two community parks that allow on-leash dogs. Perkins Park has access to numerous recreation fields, including baseball and tennis, as well as horseshoe pits, picnic tables, and a small playground. Memorial Park is a larger park and features basketball and football courts.
For hiking, check out the Wellston Trail, which is a 2-mile paved path that meanders through woodland and residential areas. It has two entrances, one on Corder Road and one on Dry Lake.
