Sallisaw, Oklahoma has the unique distinction of being a setting in the novel, Grapes of Wrath. You would think that this would be a source of pride and excitement for the town, but instead, it is a source of heated debate. The book portrayed the Okies in a bad light and had some serious inaccuracies. However, fans of the book still flock to the city just so they can see the beauty of the city.
The name Sallisaw comes from a Native American word which means "salt provisions". The Native Americans used to hunt buffalo here, then used the salt to preserve their catch. These provisions would last them through the winter.
Modern-day Sallisaw may be small, but it takes good care of its four-legged residents! There are three groomers and three vets within city limits, so you won't need to leave town to find what you need.
Sallisaw Creek Park is the pawfect place to come and enjoy being outside. This is a small park that requires dogs to be leashed, but there is a picnic area and lots of room to run.
Want to learn some of the history of the area? Take a walk through the local cemetery. Not only can you get to know the founding family but the meticulously cared-for grounds are a nice place to get some exercise.
Jay Reynolds Park is just the place you and Fido have been looking for! The walking trail here is the pawfect place for your daily walk. Just one and a half loops around make a mile, which makes getting your steps easy. There are restrooms and playgrounds for the mini-humans. Bring a frisbee because there is a full 18-hole disc golf course here as well. Just don't forget that you will need to bring a leash, doggie waste bags, and a dish to fill up for your pup. The park is open all year long from dawn to dark.
Alex Denton Park is another grrreat stop in Sallisaw. It is a small park that has a playground and basketball area. There is plenty of grass to walk through and enjoy. Don't forget your leash and doggie waste bags. If you are looking for a quiet picnic spot, this park would be just pawfect because of its location and size. You will like that there is plenty of parking close to the park. The community of Sallisaw did a wonderful job of making sure that there are plenty of green spaces where humans and their fur babies can play.
Redwood Park certainly has a lot going for it. There is a playground, ball fields, and even rodeo grounds. You and your dog can catch a show or just come and take a long walk around the whole park. This is also where the public pool is located, but fur babies can't go swimming. The parking can get crowded on busy days. The other downside is that there isn't much shade to sit in and there are no picnic areas. However, it is the pawfect spot if you just want somewhere to come and be active for an hour or two.
McGee Park is another of Sallisaw's excellent community parks. There are four softball fields with concessions, a playground, and a half-mile walking trail which welcomes doggies. There are plenty of sitting areas for you to take a break. If your hyper hound loves to socialize with both humans and canines, you're in luck -- it tends to get busy here, but there is plenty of space for everyone as well as parking. There aren't any picnic areas, but you can always grab a seat at the ball fields. Dogs aren't allowed in the concession areas. Don't forget that you will need to bring doggie waste bags.
The best word to describe Brushy Lake Park is "quiet". This park is a little off the beaten path on the north side of Sallisaw. You can fish, boat, hike, and camp here. There is paw-lenty of room to roam and explore as long as you have a leash to keep your pet safe. The park has campsites where you can set up a tent and "ruff" it with your furry friend, or you can get an RV site. If you simply want somewhere to take a digital detox for the afternoon, then this is the most barktastic place to do it. It is open all year long for your enjoyment.
