The city of Knox, Indiana is a family-oriented community. Knox hosts many community events that encourage you and your family to get involved with the local lifestyle. This includes the fur family! With three groomers and a vet, you know you can always find what your pet needs here. After all, what kind of community doesn't include its furry residents? From movies in the park to doggie splash days, there is always something to do together.
Wythogan Park is at the heart of the community. You can come to walk the trail that leads from the skate park to the splash pads or just take it around the park. The park provides water and trash receptacles for your convenience. Just remember to bring your doggie waste bags and your leash and you'll be all set to play the day away with your furry friend!
With a population of ruffly 3,800 people and pets, it shouldn't surprise you that Knox isn't the most fur-friendly place. There aren't any dog parks in town, and the only dog-friendly restaurants in town are fast food chains. Don't fret just yet, though! Knox is just a bone's throw away from some furrific recreation areas and eateries that welcome dogs with open arms!
It is about a thirty-mile drive to get from Knox to Valparaiso, but this town is truly a tail-wagging friendly place to be in. First stop is Royal Acres Dog Park. This privately owned dog park is five acres of secured grassland so that you can let your dog off their leash to sniff out some new furry friends. The rules are simple: be friendly and clean up after your dog. You can get a membership as long as you have proof of vaccinations. Everything you need is provided here: fresh water, cleaning stations, and plenty of opportunities to meet other pet parents.
While you are in Valparaiso, you can head over to Old Fairgrounds Park. This park has a few trails that are dog-friendly, but your pup will need to be on-leash at all times. There is a butterfly pavilion at the heart of the park. This special place is original to the fairgrounds. The park is often rented out for events, so if you want to visit, you will need to check the schedule. The path is open to the public all year long. You will want to bring water, waste bags, and other essential doggie supplies because the facilities are not dog-friendly.
Valparaiso is also the home of Valpo Uptown Cafe. You will pawsitively love their drink menu -- the locals say you can't visit without trying the Cinnamon Roll Specialty drink. They also serve classic breakfast and brunch dishes like the breakfast burrito and the hummus platter. The Big Vegan is another popular platter that will have your tummy growling. All the outdoor tables are furrific and pet-friendly. You do need to keep your pup on a leash while you eat, but the patio is large enough that they won't feel cramped at all. If Fido's been a good boy, slip him a treat! Bone Appetit!
Do you think you have had the best pizza pawssible? If the answer is yes, then you haven't eaten at the Tomato Bar Pizza Bakery! You and Fido can share a slice of your favorite pie, or create your own. Don't want pizza? That's okay, too! This pawesome spot also offers hoagies, calzones, and salads as well. If you need a cold one after a hard day at the office, you can also grab a beer here. All the outdoor seating is fur-friendly. This popular joint is located in a bustling shopping area, so when you're all done, you can also grab a puppucino from a nearby coffee shop!
