    Inside Franklin Park is a large, simple park called Old Orchard Park. This park is an ideal spot to bring your dog for a nice long walk! The area is divided into two parts, an open grassy field and a densely forested area. The paved walking paths do a figure eight through the park, allowing you to stick to either side or walk around the entire perimeter. The park lacks other amenities, but there’s so much room that you won’t even notice! Take the smaller loop if you want to be able to easily customize your walk to you and your dog’s needs.

    Potter Park is a five minute drive from Franklin Park. This all natural park is a great place to explore with your dog! This park is heavily forested, with a simple path that leads down and around a large pond near the center of the park. The area is used for dog walking, jogging, and bicycle riding! Its all natural state means you should carry in any supplies you may need. Potter Park is not large, with the path running half a mile, so the most you’ll probably need is a bottle of water and a doggie bowl to share with your pup!
