Kennewick provides the best of both worlds for outdoor lovers, with numerous places to go hiking, play outdoors, and enjoy some water sports. This large town is in between two confluences along the Columbia River, but got its name from a native word that meant "grassy place." Whichever outdoor adventure you wanna go out on, Fido is allowed in plenty of places and can join you for all your outdoor fun.
Columbia Park is named after Columbia River, thanks to its location right along the riverfront. The park provides over 400 acres of land, with attractions like pavilions, trails, running water, paved paths, multi-purpose fields, fishing access, swimming holes, picnic areas, and plenty more. Dogs do have to remain on a leash while inside the park, but are allowed everywhere in it.
The Lawrence Scott Park is also a popular dog spot thanks to its inner-city location, and over 25 acres of open space. The area has multiple recreational fields, enclosed basketball courts, lights during nighttime, and a .75-mile walking trail made from concrete. You can play, run or just enjoy a quiet walk with your leashed pup. Additional features include water fountains, benches, trash bins, and clean-up stations.
With six animal hospitals, Kennewick offers a great experience for you and Fido, whether its a hiking day or a short walk in the city.
