Dog Walking in Alva

Alva, Oklahoma is a tiny area that keeps to itself. It hasn't always been so isolated. This used to be an important spot for the railroad. It was one of the few stops that led you on to the west or further to the north. The railroad from the Texas panhandle even stopped here. Just because it is isolated doesn't mean you shouldn't visit. There is plenty to do in the town, including team sports for all ages.  You can take a walk through town and take in the architecture or venture through the cemeteries and pay your respects to the founding families. 

Hatfield Park used to be a farm area before it was donated to the city. Now, it is simply a green space where you can walk your dog and enjoy a little bit of quiet in the natural area. There aren't any modern buildings, so be sure to bring water with you. 

The Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge is not far from here. It is about thirty miles. You can come here to fish, picnic, and enjoy the beauty of nature. This has always been an important area for hunting and fishing. During the fall and winter, the park is closed for the Whooping Cranes.
