Papillion, Nebraska was named for the creek that runs through the center of it. Papillion comes from the French word for "butterfly". The original French settlers who made this grassy meadow their home quickly fell in love with the area, and named the river after the many butterflies they saw along its banks. And the rest, as they say, is history.

If you're in Papillion -- or "Papio", as some residents call it -- stop by Hallack Park. Hallack Park is right at the heart town. You can bring your leashed dog to walk through the fields; just be careful to avoid the butterfly sanctuaries. The trails are open from dusk to dawn. The open spaces are just perfect for a game of fetch. There is plenty more to do here as well, with parks, ball fields, and even a public pool. 

Hickory Hills Park is another barktastic spot for you to walk your dog. There are always a few other dogs on the trail so your pup can sniff out a new buddy. This is a trail system that stretches through the community and connects neighborhoods. It is often used as a bike lane as well, so just be mindful of that when visiting.

Papillion is a furrific place offering small-town charm and a big-city welcome for pooches and their owners!

    #1 Walnut Creek

    Walnut Creek Park has an off-leash area where you can bring your dog to play with other fur friends. There is a small lake where your dog can cool off on hot days. You'll need to bring your own water, though, because there is no running water here. It is also your responsibility to bring doggie waste bags. There are lots of shady sitting areas where you can sit and watch your dog play. The biggest downside of this park is that it is only fenced on three sides. If your dog is not able to follow voice commands, you may want to keep him on his leash.

    #2 Olsen Drive

    The Smallcakes Cupcakery allows you to bring your dog with you to get a cupcake or a small batch of ice cream. This Fido-friendly eatery doesn't have tables inside, but there is outdoor seating. You can try the 24 carrot cake, or get a Smash Sundae that combines cake and ice cream. You will need a leash for your dog, and make sure to tie him up outside while you go in to order. All of their deliciousness is served in to-go containers so you can easily serve your dog from one of those. If your pup has been a good boy (or girl), praise him with a sweet (but dog-safe) treat!

    #4 1st Street

    There are two separate sections of the West Papio Trail. The section on 1st street will take you through some of the most beautiful countryside. You will have to keep your dog on a leash while you walk, but he won't mind, since you'll both love the gorgeous views of the Papio River. If you walk softly in the spring, you will see the butterflies that gave the city its name. Be sure to bring lots of water with you, because this is a natural trail without many amenities, like running water. There are some areas of the trail that run through neighborhoods, but you can choose which parts you want to enjoy.

    #5 72nd Street

    The Hophouse Bar and Grill is the local watering hole that will let you bring your fur friend with you. They have all the sports bar staples, like cheese balls, burgers, and cheese sticks. You simply have to try the wings with Caribbean jerk glaze. They have a whole selection of brews to choose from, but don't miss out on the house brew. The outdoor seating always welcomes doggie diners. You will want to bring Fido's water dish, especially if you want to stay to catch the game. You can even order him a personal pizza all his own!
