The town of Shawnee gets its name from the Native American tribe that roamed the area after it was named a reservation spot in the early 1800s. After the civil war though, the area was incorporated as a town and created a Main Street. That Main Street is now known as a historical district, with most of the buildings that were built 150 years ago still intact today. It's also a historical fact that Shawnee is a dog-friendly haven and still is today, with lots of old lands made into dog-friendly parks.
The Maxine Williamson Dog Park provides dogs a safe place to run around off-leash in a fenced-in area. The park has two separate runs for large and small dogs, both with double-gated entrances, water bowls, and free toys. Both areas have plenty of room to run around on, and shady benches for humans to relax in, with access to clean-up stations and trash bins.
The Issac Waltons Park is another great option for pups to get some exercise at, with over 25 acres of open space, forested areas, and camping sites. Dogs must remain on a leash at the park, with additional amenities including grills, picnic areas, benches, water fountains, and trash bins.
Dogs and humans will fall in love with Shawnee, that hosts such a dog-friendly atmosphere, seven animal hospitals, and plenty of places to get treats for Fido!
