This spacious and family friendly neighborhood is located 23 minutes west of New Athens and is easily accessible from Park and Market Street. Schorr Lake Vineyard is a local winery that has a ton of seating outside where they allow dogs to chill out and take in the beautiful views of Schorr Lake! Konarcik Park is another fun locale that allows on-leash dogs to take a walk on the provided trails and open fields. The park also provides covered pavilions for picnicking, water fountains, and barbeque pits where you and your pooch can spend the afternoon eating and playing outside with friends!
Columbia is a short half-hour drive from New Athens and has several dog-friendly activities you can enjoy together! Situated along the Mississippi River, you and your on-leash dog can take a stroll along the banks, taking in the views. Please be cautious not to get too close to the river as this is a fast-moving body of water. For a nice lunch or dinner outing with your pooch, consider taking them to Who Dat’s, a New Orleans style restaurant, or Reifschneider’s Grill & Grape, both of which cater to our four-legged friends!
