The small town of Broken Bow sits in the flat state of Nebraska, giving its residents miles of fields to view. Broken Bow got its name when settlers found a pile of broken bows in a field, thought to have been left by a neighboring Native American tribe. The area was incorporated that same year, and has grown to house its residents, and its canines.
Melham isn't just the largest park in the city, but also the most popular thanks to the large area, well-kept appearance, and numerous features. Park-goers can enjoy baseball fields, soccer fields, picnic shelters, restrooms, paved walking paths, and a 5-acre lake for fishing. Leashed dogs are welcome in the park and have plenty of space to run around and play, or just enjoy a peaceful walk.
Tomahawk Park is another favorite park in town, containing two baseball diamonds and open space made up of dirt and grass. The ball fields are enclosed and allow pups inside as long as no teams are playing. There's also benches, picnic tables, water fountains, and trash bins available.
Despite its size, the town has 4 different animal clinics, showing how dedicated Broken Bow is to keeping its four-legged residents taken care of.
The Southern Broken Bow neighborhood is filled with rows of residential homes and provides residents with a small park called South Park. Enjoy romping on its two recreational ballfields for baseball and soccer games, open space, and shaded areas. The park is pretty rural, but offers a great experience to bring your pup when you just wanna get outside and play in a dog-friendly area. Dogs are not required to be on a leash at this park, but don't forget to bring water and clean-up bags with you. If you plan on staying in the neighborhood, head out to the Arrow Hotel, a downtown historic hotel that allows up to one pet for a fee.
