Shelby Farms Dog Park on Pine Lake Drive is nicknamed “The Outback” because it is a huge area of open fields and meadows, as well as forested land with three lakes. The entire 150 acres is for our four-legged friends to play, swim, run, socialize, and wear themselves out instead of wearing you out. The park also includes a water fountain with a built-in doggie dish and a dog wash station at the south entrance for your convenience. Since it is such a large area, it is only partially fenced so you will want to make sure your furbaby will not run off.
Collierville Dog Park in Suggs Pak on East South Street is spacious, beautiful, and has lots of shade. It is fully fenced with separate sides for large and small dogs, a water fountain, doggy waste bags, plenty of seating for the humans, and a bulletin board for announcements and such.
Pembrook is home to Halle Park, a perfect place to visit for a nice outing with your dog. Halle Park has a walking track, a trail around the lake, and even has clean-up bags for your dog. While visiting, your dog does need to stay on leash, but he will enjoy the various smells and the lake he can splash in. The park doesn’t have many trees to offer shade during the day, so take that into consideration. The trail is right under 1-mile, so you and your dog can get a short walk in before enjoying the lake.
