Newark is the second largest city named Newark in the United States, and is located at the junction of the forks of the Licking River, 33 miles from the larger Columbus. The town has lots of history and is home to the single largest earthworks structure in the country. Despite all the historic sites to uphold, the city still maintains many parks and trails, and six animal hospitals to take care of its furry residents.
The Horns Hill Park is a large and rural park in the city, with over 50 acres of thick woods with nature and biking trails. Dogs are welcome in the park and not required to be on a leash, although the park is not fenced-in. Additional features include parking, trash bins, and benches, so don't forget to bring some water and clean-up bags for Fido!
Denman Park is a more developed area, with a looping trail, pavilion, and pond for fishing. The urban area also has open spaces for Fido to run around and play, and has additional features like benches, picnic shelters, restrooms, water fountains, and trash bins. Dogs must remain on a leash while inside this park.
Whether you're looking for a days worth of outdoor activities, or a short walk that will take the afternoon, Newark will provide you and Fido with some of the best options.
