With fertile land located on the shore of the Cedar River, Austin makes up a picturesque and wooferdeful place to live in Minnesota. This isn't only true for humans, but also for the four-legged residents of Austin, thanks to the abundance of dog-friendly parks and three veterinarians available here.
The best place to bring Fido is the Austin Dog Park, a small but fenced-in area that allows your pup to run around without being on a leash. There's a separate area for small and large pups, free toys, dog-sized water fountains, and clean-up stations, and double-gated entrances in both areas. Additional features for humans are picnic tables, benches, trash bins, and nighttime lights.
Todd Park is the largest park in the city, and hosts lots of outdoor activities. There are over 11 baseball diamonds that are enclosed from the rest of the park, over 1 mile of paved pathways, plenty of open space, and fishing access along Wolf Creek. The park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and allows pups access to water fountains, clean-up stations, picnic shelters, and ball fields.
You can enjoy a soothing walk in one of the cities many parks, or find a good hiking trail that winds through the outskirts of the city. Wherever you go with Fido, you'll always be welcomed in Austin.
