West Fargo is a thriving smalltown community on the west side of Fargo. The small city becomes more and more popular each year. It first became a town when a major company moved to the area and provided housing for its workers until they ended up making their own village. Too much work and no play makes Fido a dull boy though, so plenty of parks, trails, and 2 animal hospitals were made to take care of Fido and their humans.
Rendezvous Park is the largest park in the city. It offers a little of everything, including recreational fields, space to play and picnic in, a pond, and 1.6 miles of paved walkways to explore. Walkways loop around the park, intersecting and connecting to 6 fenced-in baseball diamonds, covered picnic tables, a fishing area by the pond, a playground, a pavilion, and restrooms. Dogs are always welcome at the park, but don't forget to leash them up before coming.
For a serene getaway from the city life, head over to Armour Park. The park is surrounded by trees, with a well-kept grassy area in the middle, located along the Sheyenne River. With shaded sitting areas and a playground to run around in, the park is great for some outdoor play time or picnics, with additional features like water fountains, restrooms, picnic tables, and benches.
West Fargo is a loving and peaceful town, where you'll be far from any hostility about walking and playing with your pup outside.
Urban Plains is exactly as the name implies, a serious of plains surrounding urban residential homes in Fargo, only .7 miles east of West Fargo. The park of choice for most residents is Urban Plains Park, which offers 4 acres of flat plains with park amenities. The narrow grassy area is located right along two ponds, with four different pavilions, a playground, restrooms, and a paved walkway. Leashed pups are welcome inside the park and will have access to water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins. Another great place to take Fido is the unmarked paved trail off of 28th Avenue Street. The trail is surrounded by grassy lawn and is open to leashed dogs, but remember to bring water along the way.
