Dog Walking in Richland

Part of the Jackson "Muttropolitan" Statistical Area, MS, Richland is a great place to stop on your travels. It’s just a bone's throw away from the big city so you can find all the amenities you need while still staying in a small town with a friendly vibe. The hotels here are friendly to dog owners with puppies or lap dogs. Have a big buddy? You’ll have to find a place in Jackson, just ten minutes north. There's a vet clinic right in town, and there are also five veterinary hospitals in Jackson and one in Pearl.

Richland Eastside Park is a simple, no-frills place to have a picnic with friends and Fido. The park has a beautiful shaded area with tables and a softball field. It's very pawpular with the locals, but rarely crowded. Keep in mind that your barking buddy should stay on-leash.

Before rushing off to Jackson, you can also chill out in Pearl City Park, northeast of Richland. This is a green venue with sports fields, shaded paths, and lots of open space to explore and sniff. Afterward, enjoy a fresh smoothie at the outdoor tables of Tropical Smoothie Café on your way to Jackson. It’s a favorite local joint with all sorts of healthy food and delicious sandwiches you can take to-go!
