Residents of Airway Heights, WA get the best of both worlds -- a quiet, community-oriented, small-town experience just nine miles away from all the big city amenities of Spokane. The town is named for its proximity to the runways of Spokane Airport and Fairchild Airforce Base, not its geography. It’s located on the northeastern corner of the mostly flat Columbian Plateau -- but don’t worry, you and your pooch can still find plenty of pawesome hiking trails to sniff and explore not too far away! Airway Heights might be a small town, but there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic to take good care of your furry friend, and you’ll find 24-hour emergency services available in Spokane.
There’s no designated dog park in Airway Heights, but that doesn’t mean you and your best friend are bound to be bored! The town has a couple of community parks for on-leash exercise. Sunset Park is a favorite of local dog owners, and a grrreat spot for your fur ball to burn off some energy. You might need to drive a little to give your buddy the best experience, but don’t worry -- with a long enough leash, Airway Heights can be a great base camp for you two to explore fur-ther afield!
The Spokanimal Dog Park at High Bridge Park doesn’t just have a fabulous name -- it’s also paws down one of the best dog runs in the area! The park has a whopping eleven acres of space for your fur ball to run around in. Inquisitive pooches will love investigating the off-leash wooded trails, and tired owners will certainly appreciate the ample seating and the gorgeous views from the top of the trail. There’s a separate area for small dogs, and bags are provided, but you’ll need to bring your own bottle of water!
