Weston Bend State Park in neighbouring Weston is a huge state park covering 1,133 acres that includes a 1.75 acre free dog park! The dog park has separate areas for big and little dogs, benches for you to sit at, waste disposal facilities and a doggie water fountain. Outside the dog park, your pup will need to go back on the lead, but there is so much to see. Eight trails offer scenic views of the forest and Missouri River, varying in difficulty from the easy 0.2 mile Bear Creek Trail, to the more rugged 1.25-mile West Ridge Trail. For a challenge, take on the much longer 3.25 Mile Weston Bluffs Trail. Picnic areas are dotted throughout the park for when you are both ready for a little rest.
