Ashland sits aside the mighty Ohio River and
is the largest city in Boyd County, Kentucky. It is a great place to hang out
with your furry friend, with many scenic walks, parks to play at and nearby
pup-friendly places – you are both sure to have a pawsome time here. And with six veterinarians in town, your pup can feel safe.
For a nice local trail walk, seek out the Charles and Betty Russel Park Trails. This series of trails within the city offers great views of downtown and out into the river. The trails are well-marked and maintained for easy navigation and are a great way to find your feet and get out and about in Ashland. Keep your pup leashed here for his safety and the comfort of other trail users.
Central Park is the green jewel of Ashland, the largest of the local park system and well worth checking out while you are in town. Set over 47 acres close to the city centre, Central Park features walking paths, plenty of open space, and even an off-leash area for your pup to enjoy! Your family will also love the recreational amenities here, such as the tennis courts, ball fields, horse shoe courts, concession stand and playground.
If you are hungry after your outing, head to the pet-friendly Jolly
Pirate Donuts for a delicious, freshly baked treat and hot cup of coffee. For
something savoury, take a seat at one of Donatos Pizza’s outdoor tables and
enjoy a slice with your favourite topping.
There are many more things to see and do around Ashland, so grab the lead and head out for a puptastic adventure!
