The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Indianapolis

Greenwood

Dogs in Greenwood are in luck! There are two different green spaces to have a good time on four paws. The Smock Bark Park is a great place to bring your pup for off-leash play. The grounds are large and perfect for games of fetch, frisbee or chase! Don't forget to bring some water and a dish to give your dog a drink after all of that running. A Pooch Pass is needed to enter this dog park, which can be purchased at various locations in Indianapolis. 

Tracy Trail is nearby, if you're feeling like exploring an old railroad corridor. Furry guests are welcome as long as they are leashed. As this trail is one of the Rails to Trails areas, it comes with nearby parking and an info map for your hiking pleasure.

Plainfield

There is lots of pup-themed fun in Plainfield! You can start at the Plainfield Dog Park, where dogs run free in a safe, fenced-in area. You do need a membership to access the park, with prices ranging from $20 up to $40 depending on if you are a rec center member and or an Indianapolis resident. Once you've paid up, you and Spot get full access with a swipe card and easy parking. Only vaccinated canines are invited to play at this dog park. 

If you're looking for some on-leash fun, head over to Hummel Park! It's the perfect place for hikes, runs or even a swim in the creek. A day at either of these parks will have your dog as happy as could be!

Broad Ripple

There are lots of fun options when it comes to things to do for pooches in Broad Ripple. This neighborhood offers two different converted railway trails to hike, thanks to the Rails to Trails conservation initiative.


Monon Trail is an abandoned railway corridor turned walking path that is perfect for explores with your pup! The IWC Canal Greenway, or Central Canal Trail as it is sometimes called, is a historic canal towpath that has been restored into a hiking trail. Both locations have easy-to-access parking and information maps to keep you and Fido headed in the right direction. 

Not too far away lies the Broad Ripple Dog Park for fenced-in, off-leash doggy fun! To access this park you do need to hold a Pooch Pass, but these are easily obtained at various establishments across the city. There are poop bags and waste bins on site, but you do need to bring your own water and dog bowls to hydrate all of the pack play that takes place at this ter-ruff-ic dog park.

Springhill

Dogs and their humans in Springhill are close to some pretty great outdoor experiences. The 100 Acres Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park may be a bit hard to find, but it is well worth the effort! Forget you are in the city as you and your pup spend the day getting lost in the lush, green trails. 

Plan a picnic filled with doggy treats to eat el fresco by the lake! Turn your doggo into a cultured hound as you walk through the outdoor art installations. Leashes are needed throughout this park and it's a good idea to bring a towel for muddy paws. There is fun for the whole family in these grounds located behind the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the best part is it's totally free!

Pike Township

Pike Township is a great place for dogs! It is home to the sixth largest city park in the entire country-- Eagle Creek Park! This huge park is excellent for hiking on leash or for leash-free fun inside the 5 acre dog section. For a small $10 fee, you get a key card that allows you all day access to the premises. 

When purchasing the pass, make sure you bring your dog's vaccination papers to prove that he is up to date. There is a large marsh in the back of the dog park, so muddy mutts are a definite possibility. Fountains are located throughout the grounds; all you need is a dish to keep your pup watered. Good times are waiting for you and your fur-baby over at Eagle Creek Park.

Animal shelter spotlight in Indianapolis

Rosie’s Southside Animal Shelter

Rosie’s Southside Animal Shelter is a no-kill shelter located on the southside of Indianapolis. It was founded by Rosie Ellis, who started rescuing stray kittens in her home in 1987. In 1994, she and her son purchased the property where the shelter is currently located. Construction began the following year after nonprofit status and zoning approval were granted. Southside Animal Shelter has rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed over a thousand at-risk dogs and cats each year since 1995.

Thinking of adding a furry member to your family? See Southside Animal Shelter’s adoptable dogs and cats on its website, Facebook, or Instagram. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, a bag of food, and a wellness exam.
