Dog Walking in Lancaster

Lancaster, Ohio, is a pleasant city not far from Columbus with a rich history and spectacular landscape. The Lancaster area is home to many landmarks, including Mount Pleasant, a 250-foot sandstone bluff that offers an impressive view over the city. Lancaster is also a modern city with many amenities for both humans and pets.

A great way to explore the city is to follow the Fairfield Heritage Trail. This 9.5-mile path winds through the entire city of Lancaster and connects schools, regional parks, shopping areas and restaurant areas. The route also takes its travelers through woods and past lakes which make it an excellent trail for dog owners as well.

Lancaster, Ohio, is also about to receive its very own off-leash dog park. The Fairfield County Humane Society has already started on the construction of the 1.8-acre park next to their shelter that will be fully enclosed with fences and walls. Locals turn to the Violet Township Dog Park in the nearby Pickerington in the meantime.

Travelers to Lancaster, Ohio, with pets, have several options to choose from when it comes to staying the night. The Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites offers pet-friendly rooms. It is also possible to go camping at the Lakeview RV Park.

The town of Pickerington is about twenty minutes out of Lancaster and home to Violet Township Dog Park. This beautiful dog park is separated by large and small breeds and provides clean-up bags for your dog. The park is mainly grass, which is great for running or fetch, and the locals love how much room there is for the dogs to play in. The park does not have water fountains or bathrooms, so be prepared when you arrive and note that there aren’t any trees so it isn’t shaded at all. The atmosphere of Violet Township Dog Park is fun and friendly and your pup will have a great time socializing with new friends.
