The charming little town of Grandview makes people with dogs feel at home with many outdoor activities and amenities. This town is a historic place -- the boyhood home of the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S Truman, can be found here. The mixture of history and parks with up-to-date facilities makes Grandview a great place to visit or live. Three veterinary clinics can be found within the city limits. Of course, the growing metropolis of Kansas City is only a stone's throw away. Kansas City has veterinarians able to tackle just about any veterinary problem, be it routine, complex, or rare.
For a town of fewer than 25,000 inhabitants, Grandview has dedicated many resources and space to outdoor recreational opportunities perfect for a family with a furry family member. Fourteen city parks have plenty of green spaces for exercise and adventures with a leashed pup. River Oaks South Park has almost six acres of green space which includes some fitness equipment, rock climbing, and walking trails through forest and shrub. Meadowmere has over fifty acres of recreational space and is the center of many community activities. A person with a four-legged companion will find longer walking trails in this park, picnic sites, and a large colorful playground for those two-legged kids in the family. All the parks sparkle with town pride and make for some good healthy outdoor exercise with a leashed pup.
