Stillwater is a small, but thriving community 65 miles north of Oklahoma City. Although quiet and rural at first, the area has grown since being incorporated in 1884, with a diverse economy based on agriculture, biotechnology centers, printing and publishing, and manufacturing. The area is also great to live in for pups with over 11 different veterinarians.
Boomer Lake is a large lake on the northern side of the city, and surrounding it is the Boomer Lake Park. The park is a vast waterfront park with multiple piers and boat launching for boating and fishing, 2 miles of paved trails that encompass the lake, open space, enclosed tennis courts, 3 different pavilions, a playground, and a disc golf course. The park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and provides water fountains, benches, and clean-up stations.
The Hoyt Grove Park is a rural space on the south side of the city. Thanks to its grassy open fields and densely forested trails, the park is pretty popular among dog walkers. There's an old fenced-in baseball field, benches, and trash bins that are dog-friendly to allow your dog to play off-leash safely. The rest of the park doesn't require dogs to be on a leash and has 1.2 miles of trails.
Stillwater has the motto "Still Pioneering", and continues to pioneer in dog-walking with other parks like Southern Woods Park, Couch Park, and Morningside Park.
