The town of Bartlett is a suburban city 13 miles outside of Memphis, Tennessee. The area used to be known as Union Depot and Green Bottom, but was since called Bartlett after the construction of the Bartlett Depot. After train service was brought to the area, the small farming community evolved into plantations, and was incorporated in 1866. All those old plantations and farmlands have seen better farming days, and many of them have been converted to public, dog-friendly parks throughout the city.
One of those parks is now known as the Bartlett Dog Park, a gorgeous and fenced-in park for off-leash play. The park has two acres of land, separated into small and large dog area, with grassy terrain and lots of trees for shade. Each area has dog pools, benches, trash bins, clean-up stations, and water fountains, with a picnic pavilion on the outside.
The Flaherty Municipal Center is a large park in the center of town, with long fields of open green space, 4 fenced-in baseball fields, and a large pond for fishing. The area has a 1.2-mile paved walking trail that connects to features like water fountains, benches, trash bins, restrooms, picnic tables, and clean-up stations for Fido. Dogs must remain on a leash inside the park, but can play in the fenced-in baseball fields as long as no teams are playing.
Bartlett continues to thrive when it comes to public parks and have multiple others to visit, like Yale Road Neighborhood Park, Bartlett Boulevard Soccer Park, and Stoneridge Park. The city also has 7 dedicated animal hospitals to keep your pup healthy.
