The beautiful town of Liberty Lake is located about 15 miles east of Spokane in Washington. Surrounded by trails and lakes, the area is Fido-friendly and a wonderful place to live and spend time outdoors hiking trails and visiting parks. Hop on the Liberty Lake Stateline Trail at the intersection of Spokane Bridge Road and East Appleway Avenue. You and your pup can enjoy hiking almost 2 miles to the west where you will end up at North Country Vista Blvd. The path is paved and follows along a former railroad line. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with the pooch admiring nature.
Two veterinary clinics are also found in Liberty Lake and can provide excellent medical care for your pup’s unique needs. Whether Fido needs vaccinations or emergency services, you will not have to search far for qualified vets. If you are looking for healthy dog food and treats, stop by Pawpular Companions Pet Supplies where the friendly owners will answer your questions and help you find toys to make Fido happy.
When traveling to the Lake, check out the Quality Inn & Suites which welcomes Fido at no additional fee. With amazing sites and a comfortable place to stay, have some fun and enjoy the dog-friendly town of Liberty Lake.
Scraps Dog Park is just one of the features of the East Appleway Ave neighborhood where your pup can play in the grassy area or walk through the wooded paths. Also called the Patricia Simonet Laughing Dog Park and located inside of the Gateway Park, your pup is gonna love to frolic in this completely fenced area that features a double-gated entry for safety. During the summer months, your pooch can get a cool drink in the doggie water fountain, and doggie waste bags are available to clean up after Fido. If you are traveling, this dog park is right off Interstate 90 at exit 299.
Taking Fido to the Liberty Lake Regional Park will offer plenty of exercise for both your two and four-legged children. With over 3,000 acres of lakeshore, forest, and wetlands, you will find many paths where your pup can romp and roam. Plan to pack a picnic and relax at one of the shaded tables in the BBQ area. You can also access the Liberty Lake Loop Trail from the park that offers a six-and-a-half-mile hike along beaver dams and through the cedar groves. Just be sure to keep your pup on a leash. Be aware that dogs are not allowed on the beach.
The Rocky Hill Park in the Meadowood neighborhood is large, well-kept, and a great place to walk your dog. You can let the kids climb on the playground equipment and stroll around the paths admiring the gardens and views of Mt. Spokane. Hike along the trails and visit the goats, but make sure to keep Fido on his leash. If you are feeling hungry, take your pup to the San Francisco Sourdough Eatery where you will find sandwiches and soup. Your pooch can join you at one of the outdoor tables and order his own dish of cool water.
Walking your pooch through the Half Moon Park neighborhood will give you a great opportunity to stop by Half Moon Park. There are 2.8-acres of space with a playground and spray park for the kids, and a walking path where you can spend quality time with your pup or enjoy a picnic lunch. When Fido needs extra space to run around and get rid of energy, the park is a perfect spot for a playdate with other furry friends. You might also want to check out the Spokane KOA where you can camp with your pooch, but you need to keep Fido on a leash when walking through the campground.
Traveling about 10 miles east of Liberty Lake, you will find the North Idaho Centennial Trail on exit 5 off Interstate 90. The trail is part of the former rail system and is perfect for a hike with Fido and the family. You can enjoy nature, and you might even see bald eagles while walking along the path. If you want to hang out in Falls Park instead of hiking the trail, you can watch the dam and the kids can have fun on the playground. Once Fido has had his fill of sniffing the trees and plants, relax at one of the picnic tables and enjoy a cool drink. Remember to bring doggie waste bags and clean up after your pooch.
