Midwest City may have a plain name, but it has plenty of excitement to offer. The city is a dog lover’s paradise. There are plenty of places to walk and stay--and six vet clinics and hospitals within Midwest City if your friend needs a checkup day or night.
Joe B. Barnes Regional Park is a destination for the whole family. They have sports fields, a playground, picnic areas, and an off leash dog park! There’s something for everyone in this Midwest City treasure that lies slightly off the beaten path in eastern Midwest City.
Tom Poore Park is another great place to go if your dog loves to walk. Leash up and head through the paths that connect Pecan Grove Park and Tom Poore Park along Soldier Creek. It’s a gentle, easy walk of a mile or so each way, perfect for a morning or evening stroll. Just remember to pack a walker bowl before heading out.
When you and your dog are both tuckered out, the Sheraton Midwest City Hotel is ready to welcome you home for the night. There’s no pet fee for up to two pets, so your dog can have a sleepover with a puppy pal if you don’t have two dogs of your own.
Rolling Meadows/Royal Meadows is a lovely neighborhood with a pleasant and outgoing community. Bordering the eastern edge of this neighborhood is Esa Park, containing grassy areas and walking paths for the perfect afternoon stroll. Mid-America Kiwanis Park is nestled in the center of Rolling Meadows/Royal Meadows, containing beautiful open fields and Soldier Creek, which is a lovely addition to the scenery that keeps the park lush and green. Remember to keep your pup on a leash, as neither of these parks are fenced in. Your pup is sure to have a fantastic time exploring both of these gorgeous parks!
Adair Boulevard is a nice area with a friendly atmosphere. Just across the main highway lays Sooner Park, a beautiful stretch of green that’s the perfect place to take your pup out for a pleasant walk. The park comes complete with a gorgeous creek that borders it, keeping the grass green and the trees standing tall. Do note that a main road runs beside this park, so if your pup is easily spooked by passing cars you may want to keep closer to the creek. Be sure to keep your dog leashed at all times, as it’s against the rules to let dogs roam free.
Atkinson Park is a wonderful neighborhood with an outgoing community. The vast majority of this neighborhood is taken up by Rotary Pavilion, a beautiful green park with plenty of room for a pleasant nature walk or jog.

A little further south is Holoway Park, offering a gorgeous field that’s perfect for a natural scenic route on your usual morning walk. Be sure to keep your pup leashed, as neither of these parks are fenced in and dogs aren’t allowed to roam free.
