“Love to Love dogs!”

I'm an animal science graduate that has always had a love for dogs. Growing up my household has always had at least two dogs, so I have become very comfortable with walking multiple dogs at once if needed. My household also has senior dogs and a three legged dogs, so I understand the patience needed to go slower on walks if necessary.

Dog Walking in Columbia

Columbia is a thriving city surrounded by rolling hills and green fields that rests along the shore of the Duck River. The city is 45 miles south of Nashville, and attracts over 100,000 people each year during their Mule Day Parade and Festival. Mules aren't the only celebrated animal around town, as dogs are another one of Columbia's favorite four-legged friend. To show how much the city loves its canine pals, it provides over 400 acres in public, dog-friendly park space and 6 animal hospitals.

The largest park in the city is the Maury County Park, which has 242 acres of open space, forested trails, sports fields, and trails. The trail system in the park is made of concrete, dirt, and crushed stone and loops around the area, covering 3.2 miles. Thre are 8 pavilions, fenced-in baseball fields, a soccer field, a playground, restrooms, and a gazebo. Dogs are always welcome inside the park as long as they remain on a leash, and will have access to water fountains, trash bins, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, and benches.

Fairview Park lies on the east side of the city, and has a quiet, but open space that is dog-friendly. Leashed pups can enjoy four different fenced-in baseball fields, tennis courts, shaded sitting areas, restrooms, and a pavilion to rest under. There are paved walkways that lead to water fountains, benches, and clean-up stations.

Columbia has a long history of showering their four-legged residents with love, and they aren't slowing down anything soon. Check out its other dog-friendly parks, like the Duck River Recreation Area, Betty Lee Park, and many more!
