Oklahoma City has several notable sites, including the Myriad Botanical Gardens and its Crystal Bridge, but it's important not to forget the unrivaled Oklahoma City Zoo and beautiful Botanical Garden. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department manages more than 100 parks, most of which allow leashed dogs on their trails and walkways.
Trails stretch across the majority of Oklahoma City, providing paved paths for bicyclists, runners, and dog walkers. Depending on your schedule, and interest, the trails vary in length, difficulty, and elevation which allows you a great selection in order to best match the mood, health, and interest of you and Fido. This network of trails connects several parks, lakes, and suburbs and offers plenty of options for families and their four-legged companions.
If you’re more interested in an area for off-leash play, bring your pup to the Paw Park. This two-acre park has separate areas for small and large dogs, water stations, and even a pond for the canine swimmers. Human visitors can rest at one of many benches or shaded areas.
At the end of the day, stop in at one of several dog-friendly restaurants in the city. The Picasso Café not only has a nice patio for canine guests but also offers a menu of dog treats, thus ensuring that both you and your pup get a good meal.
