Dog Areas in Horseshoe Bend

Located in southwestern Idaho, Horseshoe Bend is a relatively small town of only 700 residents; interestingly, though, it’s the largest city in rural Boise County! This community is just small enough to have a small-town feel but just big enough to still have access to city amenities. And with over 20 veterinarians available within a 35-minute drive, it’s a very safe spot for Fido.

Some of the most popular options near Horseshoe Bend are the parks near Boise. Winstead Park, just 26 miles south, is a massive 11-acre park complete with a walking path, a covered shelter, a playground, and much more. Even better, most of the park areas welcome off-leash pups during the late afternoon hours. A few miles west of Winstead is Settlers Park. This gorgeous park has a large grassy area that’s great for frisbee play and even a small pond for swimming. And, between its golf course and large sports complex, this park is a massive 60 acres.

If you want to stay in Horseshoe Bend, head on over to Kit’s Riverside Restaurant where they serve everything from gyros, burgers, and chicken sandwiches. A great stop for lunch on the Payette River, this restaurant welcomes pooches on its outdoor patio.

So, don’t miss out on all the pup-friendly restaurants and parks available in -- or just a short drive from -- Horseshoe Bend!
