Dog Walking in Battle Creek

Situated in the verdant Elkhorn River Valley, Battle Creek is a small and bright community where generations of families have grown from the town’s early settlers in the mid-1800s. The community prides itself on its friendliness, clean streets, excellent schools, and slower pace of living. Although a small town, Battle Creek has many recreational amenities like a golf course, a public swimming pool, athletic fields and a big beautiful town park. Should Fido need a dog doc, there’s also an animal clinic in town to take care of your pooch.

Battle Creek Park encompasses 60 acres! Understandably, it’s a pawpular place for leashed walks with pups. You and your four-legged pal will love walking on the paved walking path that clocks in at about a mile. The path meanders through grassy areas, trees, around the ball fields and adjacent to a quiet wooded area. It’s a woofderful spot for a jaunt!

If you need a place to spend the night with your pooch, check into the Eco-Lux Inn, just 11 miles away in Norfolk! The hotel has pet-friendly rooms where you and Fido can curl up for the night for just a small extra fee.

Whether you call the area home, or you and your furry pal are just passing through, there will be tons of tail wagging in Battle Creek!
