The park is puptacular and Fido will love socializing with his furry friends, while the kids use the swimming pool or baseball diamond.
Fido will love running around with friends in the Napoleon Off-Leash Dog Park/Meyerholtz Park on E. Front Street. The park is near the river for amazing views and cool breezes. You and your pooch can play with a toy, or just walk around the fenced park and get some exercise. When you need a rest, relax on one of the shaded benches and enjoy a bottle of water. You will need to have a membership for the park and get a key fob to get in and out of the gate, so plan ahead for this pawrific adventure!
