The natural wilderness of Richland is vibrant and rich, located on the confluence of the Yakima and Columbia Rivers. The city has gained the nickname "City of theĀ  Bombers, Atomic City" thanks to the Hanford nuclear site that's located in the city. The area caters to pups and their owners with the reserves, public parks, and trails that make up the city.

The main attraction for residents and visitors is the 276-acre reserve known as Chamna Natural Preserve. The area is located on the northern shore of the Yakima, with thick brush and open spaces. The park has over 11 miles of hiking, jogging, and horseback trails. Pups must remain on a leash inside the park, and can explore all the trails and enjoy additional features like water fountains, benches, clean-up stations, and trash bins.

The city also hosts a lovely dog park known as the Badger Mountain Dog Park, with a 2.5 acre area for large dogs, and a 0.5 acre for smaller pups. Each part is fenced-in with a grassy terrain, trees, a pavilion, picnic tables, and kiddie pools in the summer. Additional features for off-leash pups are clean-up stations, water fountains, and trash bins. The park is in the larger park of Badger Mountain Community Park, which hosts a 1.2-mile paved trail, open space, fenced-in baseball fields, a pool, a playground, and more picnic pavilions. Dogs must be on a leash outside the dog park, but can enjoy the rest of the park as long as they are cleaned up after.

Four-legged and two-legged residents will fall in love with Richland, thanks to its expansive outdoor activites, beautiful landscape, and 7 dedicated animal hospitals.
