    #1 Cortland West


    Cortland West is a mostly rural and industrial area. Most residents head over to Cortland just minutes to the east for shopping, dining, and recreation. However, Doug's Fish Fry is on the Cortland West side of town and is a great casual eatery where you and your pup can enjoy plenty of delicious food at one of their two outdoor tables! You have to go inside to order, though, so you may want to bring another two-legged friend with you to hold the leash for a minute! Citizens Park is just a few minutes from Doug's Fish Fry and has picnic tables and open fields for an afternoon of dog-friendly fun.

The park was originally used as part of the area's agricultural development, which failed to flourish due to poor soil quality.
