Once a major thoroughfare for pioneers on the Oregon and California Trails, Brule is now a friendly community that still celebrates its rich past. Ruts carved by wagon wheels, livestock and people traversing on foot are still evident from the approximately 400,000 travelers that passed through the area in the mid-1800s. The town of Brule was officially settled in 1886, and was named for the Sioux tribe of Native Americans that camped in the area about a decade earlier.
Brule is home to a puptastic park where you and your leashed dog will have a blast taking a walk. Get in a few laps around the perimeter of Barton Park on the sidewalk, and then enjoy some playtime on the luscious lawn. There are also lots of mature trees that provide ample shade, making the park an especially pleasant place to hang out on warm days. Barton Park also has a playground for kiddos and a covered picnic area. You’ll want to bring water for you and Fido, plus cleanup bags.
In the event that your pup needs to visit a vet, there are two clinics just nine miles away in Ogallala. Ogallala has other furrific amenities too, including a pet-friendly hotel, the Lonesome Dove Lodge. You’ll love curling up with Fido in the cozy cowboy-themed rooms. There’s a small fee for pets.
With a pawsome park and conveniently close amenities, pups and their people love Brule!
