The Metamora neighborhood in Franklin, Michigan welcomes you and your pup! The town is situated between the towns of Oxford and Lapeer. Metamora gets its meaning from the Native American derivative "among the hills", so be prepared to travel up and down a few small hills along your way. You will pass by many different residential areas, some containing condominiums, apartment complexes, and well-manicured lawns of beautiful homes lining each and every street. Take in the sights and grab a bite at one of Metamora's local favorite eateries, some of which may have outdoor seating for your pup to join you as you relax and enjoy your day out.
Franklin has a tendency to get extremely cold in the winter, so you'll want to be prepared for snow, sleet, ice, and other dangerous conditions where being out and about may not be ideal. However, summers may present some better weather for walking, so take advantage of those warmer days when they come around.
Alternatively, you can head just south of Walter P. Reuther Freeway and venture to Pebble Creek Park which can provide you and your pup with some space to roam. While Pebble Creek is not much more than a large, open field, there is a covered area that is great for parties and picnics, so you should still be able to find ample shade and opportunities to relax while your pup meets and greets others in this open green area.
