Leadington is named for the mining industry that fueled the economies of the area but left some dangerous clean-ups. That danger has long receded into history, and what is left is a quaint little community of fewer than 500 people. No veterinarians are in the city limits, but nearby towns have several clinics for both routine and emergency care.
Leadington is great for people with a pup in the family because it's situated close to two Missouri state parks. St. Joe State Park is just four miles east of town. This state park has over 8,000 acres of land dedicated to recreation and conservation, complete with a campground, lakes, and four hiking trails. It's popular with ATV enthusiasts since it has 2,000 acres of former mining land for off-road fun. The hiking trails are multi-use, with mountain bikes, horses, and hikers enjoying the trails. The trails include a short 1.25-mile path and a nearly 13-mile trail that takes a hiker across creeks and back into the canopy of hardwood and pine trees.
St. Francois State Park is eleven miles north of Leadington. This state park has a campground and gives boaters access to the Big River. All the trails in St. Francois are either moderately difficult or rugged. The Swimming Deer Trail takes a hiker along the bluffs of the Big River on a 3.15-mile expedition with spectacular views. Dogs are welcome in Missouri State Parks as long as they remain on a leash no longer than ten feet.
Farmington is located six miles south of Leadington. Farmington Dog Park has some great space for a dog to let loose and run leash-free. Fido will love sniffing the grass and dirt and perhaps a canine pal or two. A separately fenced area protects the small dogs, too. This dog park has some agility equipment for added fun and training. Pet parents don't need to worry about bringing a water bottle -- water is available at the park. A few benches let the folks take a break and watch their pooches get good and tired. Waste stations remind everyone to do what is necessary to keep the dog park clean. Hours are from sunrise until sunset. No fee or registration is required.
Fredericktown is located twenty-four miles south of Leadington. Good eats with a four-legged companion can be found in Fredericktown! The Pig BBQ on State Highway OO makes it easy to take a pooch to lunch (or dinner). Two outdoor tables welcome you and your dining companion. Lalo's Mexican Grill on Jennifer Street is another option for a spicy lunch or dinner. Traditional Mexican cuisine is on the menu. You and your furry friend will be welcomed to eat on the outdoor patio. Madison Inn Lodge has dog-friendly rooms ready for you and your pup (or pups) to rest a weary head (and tails). The lodge allows up to two dogs of any size for an additional charge of $15 per dog per night.
Ste. Genevieve is located thirty-three miles east of Leadington. A small but remarkably beautiful dog park beckons the hounds, poodles, and Great Danes from all over. Dogs of all sizes play together in this fully fenced, grassy enclosure. The community put a lot of love into the Fleur de Lis Dog Park. The town donated its drainage pipes, tires, and a few fire hydrants, and a team of artists went to work to assemble a colorful pooch playground out of them! Tunnels, ramps, and an obstacle course of tires make this dog park one that will tire your pup out. Water is not available on-site. One unshaded bench gives a person a place to park while the pup has fun. This dog park is free and open to the public.
Herculaneum is located thirty-seven miles north of Leadington. All Bark Village truly makes a dog howl with happiness! This well-designed dog park has two fully fenced grassy spots for dogs' exercise and play. A pavilion in the middle of the dog park has plenty of spots for the folks to sit and supervise their canine pals. Specially designed water fountains have water bowls on the bottom for the dogs and spigots for people at the top. A concrete pad includes a hose for rinsing off a dirty dog. In the summer months, the hose is used to fill up those kiddie pools for some splashin' good fun! This dog park does not charge visitors and requires no registration to visit.
Arnold is located forty-nine miles north of Leadington. It is a bit of a drive, but for a pawesome good time, it is worth it! The city of Arnold has two free public dog parks located in its City Park and Ferd B. Lang Park. Both are identical in design and amenities. A large, fully fenced grassy space gives large dogs a place to run and feel the breeze sail through the fur. A separate fenced area is reserved for the small dogs. Drinking water is available at the dog park, and doggie waste baggies are also supplied by the park. Shaded spots for people to sit make it a comfortable experience for the accompanying human companion.
