Lenexa is close to the Kansas River, and there are various regional parks that make life in the city much more pleasant for those who love nature and for pet owners.

One of these parks is the Mill Creek Streamway Park, a linear park that offers over 17 miles of hiking trails and three miles of equestrian trails. While dogs have to be on a leash at all times, the park is still a splendid opportunity for local dogs to get some exercise as there are no off-leash dog parks in Lenexa.

Stoll Dog Park in Overland Park is smaller but still relatively big and offers 7 acres for dogs to run and romp around.
