Lawrence is a large suburban town on the east side of Indianapolis, only ten miles from the city's center. The city used to be named Lanesville when it was first incorporated, but was changed due to there already being another Lanesville in the state. Thanks to the city's suburban status and home to a state park, the area has been very straightforward in creating more public outdoor places to play, relax, and go for a walk with your dog.

The city has its own dedicated dog park known as the Waggin' Tails Bark Park. The park features one large open area with a lush grassy terrain and trees, and surrounded by a fence for safe off-leash play. The park has benches, kiddie pools in the summer, dog-sized water fountains, picnic tables, a double-gated entrance, free balls, and clean-up stations. The park also connects to a small trail that wraps around the nearby pond, which is perfect for going on a secluded walk with your pup.

This town is also home to the Fort Harrison State Park, a 17,000-acre park with multiple creeks, miles of paved and hiking trails, thick forests, and plenty of places for picnics. The park is open from 7 am to 8 pm, and has a recreational area with a playground, water fountains, benches, trash bins, and picnic pavilions. The state park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, but owners will have to bring their own clean-up bags.

Lawrence is a small and bustling town that provides not only three animal hospitals, but also love and an accepting atmosphere to its four-legged residents.
