Dallas Center is a puptastic place for dogs and their owners. With three parks in the city, a spacious arboretum just south of the city limits, and a nearby trail, you and Fido have a variety of options when you want to get out and explore. This area is conveniently located about 25 miles west of Des Moines.
When you want to get out and hike with your pup, head to The Brenton Arobretum, just south of town. There are seven trails that wind through different parts of this 140-acre outdoor wonderland. Choose your path based on the plants and habitat type. Remember to keep your pooch on a leash up to six feet long and to pick up any waste.
Treat Fido to some play time with other dogs in the Adel Dog Park. This one-acre, off-leash area is located next to the Family Aquatic Center in Adel, and it includes obstacles, waste stations, and separate play areas for large and small dogs.
You can investigate nature and get some fresh air with your canine companion in the Voas Nature Center, about 11 miles north west of Dallas Center. This vast natural area includes long and short loop hiking trails through forested, wetland, and prairie areas. Make sure you restrain your special pal on a leash no longer than six feet.
