    If you and pup share a love of all things botanical, head to Merrifield Garden Centre Dog Park to the north of Bristow in Manassas. This fenced area at the entrance to the Garden Centre is the perfect place for Fido to have a run off-lead, chase some tennis balls and meet new friends. There is water and some clean up bags provided, but it is a good idea to take some of your own. There is shade available and pup-sized pools in the summer. Once he has worn himself out a little, you can both take a wander through the garden centre itself and check out the amazing array of plants and garden products on offer.
