One area the city has advanced in is the dog-friendliness, and provides dog parks, a walkable downtown, and 1 veterinarian.
Although much of the area is urban, you and Fido have the option to visit the Saint Stanislaus Conservation Area where's there's plenty of natural wetlands, woods, and fields to explore. The preserve has a small parking area with paved, crushed stone, and natural trails that wind through the park, taking up over 2 miles. Travel 1 mile into the park with your pooch and you'll reach the Missouri River, where you can fish and swim on the natural beach. Remember to leash up Fido before coming out and bring some water!
