Fort Meade may be a small town, but it has some major government departments centered inside it, like the National Security Agency and Central Security Service. It's no wonder too since the small town is only 20 minutes from Washington D.C. and 20 minutes from Baltimore. Whether you're here visiting, or a resident, you'll soon come to realize the town also has lots of dog-friendly parks, a pet loving atmosphere, and two animal hospitals.

The Bark Park is a sandy and grassy area that is surrounded by trees, and is the spot for social pups. This dog park is meant for off-leash play with a fenced-in enclousure, and also provides separate areas for small and large dogs, double-gated entrances, trash bins, and clean-up stations.

Fort Meade is also home to one of the largest protected areas in the state called the Patuxent Research Refuge, which has over 12,000 acres of land. Dogs are welcome in the refuge while on a leash of 6 feet or shorter, and can enjoy the miles of trails like the Little Patuxent River Trail, Forest Trail, and Merganser Pond Trail that extend over a combined 9 miles. There is also a fishing and swimming area at Cash Lake, with trash bins, benches, and water fountains.

From the beautiful scenes of the surrounding forests and the Little Patuxent River, to the metropolitan areas of the city, you and Fido will have everything you need in Fort Meade.
