Plainfield is a city historically divided into North and South Plainfield. The city has a few amenities for people with a furry family member. Two veterinary clinics are in town for all a dog's medical needs. This city has four municipal parks, but dogs generally aren't allowed in them. But don't fret just yet! Plainfield is situated in Union County, which boasts 36 parks. The majority of the county parks allow leashed dogs to visit and hike the trails with their human companions. 

Warinanco Park is located nine miles south of Plainfield. This park is a popular place to get outside in the woods and do some hiking. Dogs can enjoy this adventure as long as they remain on-leash. Warinanco has several dedicated trails with varying lengths and degrees of difficulty. Similarly, Watchung Reservation offers people and their leashed dog places to go and enjoy the outdoors. For more wilderness, people and their leashed dogs can visit the Great Swamp National Refuge just ten miles north of Plainfield  

In town, the dog-friendly Brick House Tavern & Tap serves up some brew and bison burgers (among other tasty entrees). Plenty of outdoor patio seating is available for a person dining with a four-legged companion. Dessert of Italian ice or custard can be had at Rita's Italian Ice. This restaurant features an outdoor walk-up service and outdoor tables that are a great resting spot after an active day.

No need to remember the water bottle or doggie bags -- this dog park provides what a person with a pup needs. Shaded benches are a great place for pup parents to rest, and a decorative gazebo is also a shaded gathering spot for the human companions.

    #3 Linden

    Linden Dog Park, just 10 miles east of Plainfield, is a great place for a four-legged pal to stretch those paws. Grass cushions those paws in this off-leash dog park.  Small dogs have a smaller spot to have some leash-free fun. The field gets muddy after a rain, so beware if you want clean paws in your car for the ride back to Plainfield. There are doggie and people water fountains here, and poop bags are also supplied by the park.  Be ready for some exercise at this park! There is no place to escape the summer sun -- this park needs a few amenities to make it more comfortable for the human companions. Shaded seating is absent at this dog park. For some exercise on-leash, head to nearby Memorial Field Park. Exploring the walking paths and picnic areas here is the pawfect way to end the day.

    #4 Morristown

    Morristown is a little fur-ther afield at 22 miles away, but the trip is well worth it! Lewis Morris Dog Park gives dogs a fully fenced, paved place for their own leash-free exercise and fun. One area is separated for the small dogs. The paved surface doesn't please everyone, but it makes the dog park usable even after a hard rain  The dog park, unfortunately, lacks any places for the people to sit  Water is not available in the dog park, but is close by. Poop bags are at hand and in good supply. Outside the dog park, the main park has some beautiful scenery, so don't forget to snap some pics! The main park offers over ten miles of designated trails for on-leash hikes away from the asphalt and into the woods.
