A town in Wake County, North Carolina, Wendell is known to locals and visitors for its small-town charm, in spite of the population not being all that small. It’s not as busy as the nearby city of Raleigh by any means; in fact, it can be something of a welcome reprieve from the bustling technology hub. It’s easy to see why people would flock to the area, especially dog lovers of all sorts.
While Wendell itself doesn’t have many attractions of its own, its proximity to Raleigh and other big cities in North Carolina make it a must-see location for a doggy day trip. So whether you’re just visiting, or if you’re there long term, it’s always good to know the slices of doggy paradise in the area. One such location, smack dab in the middle of Raleigh, is Oakwood Dog Park. An expansive space which features an area for dogs of all sizes, as well a separate section for small or frail dogs, your pup is sure to fit in with the friendly faces in this park -- be they man or beast! Water is provided, though you will need to clean up any messes that your pup may make!
