Dublin is fairly unique in the fact that it is spread into three counties in Ohio when most cities are in one or two counties, and it is a newly founded city that was incorporated in 1987. The city has over 1,000 acres of parks with almost 80 miles of trails and 39 parks on the Scioto River. The people of Dublin have 9,795 dogs as pets so you and Fido will find a lot to do while you are there.
The only “official” dog park is Nando’s in Darree Fields on Cosgray Drive, which was named after the city’s first police dog. Nando’s is a two-acre fenced area that has small and large dog sections, benches, picnic tables, and dog agility equipment; such as a hoop jump, doggy table, ramp, tunnels, and a dog jump. There is also a box for pet waste bags and lots of trash cans. The adjoining park has over 150 acres of fun with ball fields, a nature area, restrooms, playgrounds, and hiking paths.
Indian Meadows Park on Fallen Timbers Road is an excellent place to bring your furbaby to hike and play. It has over 30 acres with fishing, nature area, playground, gardens, and gorgeous hiking paths. You and Fido can get your exercise here and enjoy the waterfall while you are there.
This unique Dublin Neighborhood is home to Indian Run Falls, a spectacular place to spend an afternoon. This 4 acre area was once home to the Wyandot tribe, and is now accessible to the public. Featuring gorgeous waterfalls, boardwalks and overlooks, there is no shortage of beauty here. Take a leisurely stroll on one of the marked trails, or hang out in one of two pavilions for a quiet lunch. Keep your pup leashed, as this is a public area, and be sure to bring water and clean up bags as there is none on site.
Right in the heart of the city are multiple hotels ready to welcome you and your dog! Red Roof Plus Columbus Dublin charges no fees for up to two dogs under 50 pounds. Residence Inn Columbus Dublin allows two dogs of any size in their rooms for an additional fee. The Sonesta ES Suites Dublin allows two dogs of any size for a fee that varies on how long you are staying. Here, dogs must be crated when left in the rooms by themselves. Be sure your pup sleeps through the night, and take him on a walk through nearby Smiley Park.
