Dog Walking in Gerald

Gerald is one of many small Franklin County communities. It sits on Highway 50, and folks in Gerald see visitors frequently.  No veterinarian has set up shop in the town.  A person with a pup in need will have to travel a few miles to locate one.  

City Park is the place to visit first if you and your canine friend need a break from driving or want to get outside for a stretch. This park has a couple of picnic areas. A playground and lake add to this small park's charm.  Anglers will find plenty of fish to catch in the lake!  A walking trail makes it easy for you and your leashed pup to experience nature and get that needed exercise. Legion Park on Fitzgerald is another place to spend some quality time in a green space. 

A drive of fewer than twenty miles south will take you and your canine buddy to Long Ridge Conservation Area. This 1,815-acre area is owned and maintained by the state of Missouri. Hikers have nine miles of dedicated trails to traverse with a leashed four-legged friend. Five parking lots give different convenient points of access.  The trail is a multi-use one that's shared with horseback riders, so expect to see larger four-legged friends along your walk.

For life or just a short visit, the city of Gerald will keep you and your pup happy!

Union is a twenty-mile journey east of Gerald. K9 and Kiddos Dog Park will make all of your little ones happy! The name says it all. The city designed this dog park to serve the needs of its cutest citizens -- both human and canine. The dog park is built so the playground is on one side and the dog park is on the other. People who visit with kids and dogs are able to sit in the middle at picnic tables and watch over their families. This dog park features a grassy ground. A small dog enclosure provides safe play space for the little pups. Pieces of agility equipment add to this dog park's fun.  Waste stations stocked with doggie waste bags are an added convenience.

Dogs are welcome to sit with their people. A server will bring a bowl of water for a thirsty furry pal. Afterward, a person with a hound that needs a run will find a fenced-in dog park at Burger Park.

A drive of forty-three miles east of Gerald will take you and your pup to Eureka.  The destination is the new dog park which opened in May 2018. A real treat it is and worth the easy highway drive!  This dog park requires nonmembers pay an annual fee prior to visiting.  It has a coded entrance. Features of this dog park include two separate play areas -- a separately fenced section is reserved for the smaller pups. The surface is grass.  Several pieces of agility equipment make this a great spot for some extra training. Tunnels, ramps, and beams are painted bright red and blue.  The city made sure to put in water fountains in both sections of the dog park.
