Hello, my name is Marissa. I grew up in Sumner but I've traveled a little. Growing up I always had pets, I loved them so much that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I've taken a veterinary technician class and plan on continuing my education in the animal medical field soon!
The scenery around Sumner is something from a fairy tale. This gorgeous city is surrounded by vibrant foothills and natural wildflowers that lead up to the mountainous background. Mt. Rainer is only 20 miles from Sumner, providing not only beautiful views, but is also the most glaciated peak in the US, spawning 6 major rivers. Not only is Sumner known for its lively outdoor activities, but also for its friendly hospitality to its four-legged residents.
The Riverside County Park is a 50-acre area right along the Puyallup River that provides plenty of space and trails to leashed pups in the city. Fishing and exploration dominate the parks activities, and there's access to the river with small sandy banks and dirt paths that wind through the forested park. Fido is welcome to take a good hike or enjoy some time in the river for a swim.
If you and Fido want some space to run around, head to the Seibenthaller Park, where your pup will have plenty of room to fill his play and exercise needs. The park is a large open space that offers covered seating areas. Don't forget to leash your pup up before heading out for a walk!
The small town of Sumner has only one veterinarian, but provides enough open space for you and Fido to be able to get some exercise and play in every walk.
