On the northern island of O'ahu in Hawaii is a small town called Waipio, located only 16 miles from Honolulu. The area is a beautiful tourist destination, with views of the neighboring volcanoes and the rest of the Hawaiian Islands. The city isn't only great with tourists, but also with pups thanks to the large city parks, one veterinarian, and an all-year long love for pups!
The Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park is one of the largest and most popular parks in the area, with over 70 acres of space that's filled with recreational fields, shaded trails, and open space. There are 12 different baseball diamonds that are dog-friendly as long as no teams are playing, 10 enclosed tennis courts, 3 miles of paved walkways, and lots of open space to run around and play in. Dogs do not need to be on a leash inside the park, and will have access to water fountains, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, and benches.
The Waipio Neighborhood Park is a nice little community park that is surrounded by tall trees, and offers grassy fields, two baseball diamonds, and fenced-in tennis and basketball courts. There's a paved walkway, a playground, and picnic tables. Dogs do have to remain on a leash inside this park.
There's no better place to get out and walk Fido then the beautiful and dog-loving community of Waipio.
