A friendly town with lots of history, the people of North Platte, Nebraska have made dog-friendly spaces a priority as the town grows. Waggin’ Tails Dog Parks offers an opportunity for your pooch to play off-leash. Over 2 acres large, this park has a section for large and small dogs, as well as water for both humans and pooches. The city is also in the process of building another park, the Northside Bark Park. Although more amenities will be added in the future, currently the park is open as a wide grassy space with several picnic tables and benches.

Start your morning early with dog-friendly breakfasts and coffee. The Espresso Shop by Caravan In the East 4th Street/North Centennial Road neighborhood near City Center is North Platte’s finest doggie dining establishment. Outdoor tables give your dog plenty of room to sprawl in the sunshine. You can sprawl, sit, or blink sleepily until your espresso arrives. You can also choose from baked goods, sandwiches, and other filling ways to start your day. If coffee’s too strong for your four-legged friend, they can order a bowl of water instead.
Northside Bark Park, also known as Happy Hounds Retreat, is an off-leash dog park in Brady/Maxwell.

No clowning around, your pup will have to juggle all the things trying to get his attention. The park also contains agility obstacles and climbable structures for dogs. This park is fully fenced, making it ready for off leash play and exploration. Enjoy the space to walk or wait for your dog to burn off his energy!
If you’re looking for something a bit unusual to do with your pup, head on over to Golden Spike Tower.
