Veradale is a small community perched at the cusp of Spokane Valley. It used to be a full, census designated place, but today has been subsumed by the surrounding area. That doesn’t mean that locals aren’t proud of their Veradale addresses! It manages to be well serviced by the surrounding area, but preserves the charms of a small town. If you’re looking for a home base to explore the Spokane Valley area, Veradale is accessible, beautiful, and extremely dog-friendly! This community also offers two full service veterinarians to see to your dog’s every sniffle!
Morrow Park is a small, heavily forested park that still boasts a Veradale address. This park is mostly woodlands, perfect for hiking and enjoying the great beauty of the area. Be prepared to share the trail with hikers, cyclists, and even equestrians! Be sure to pack your own water and a doggie bowl to share, because Morrow Park lacks drinking fountains. Your dog should stay on leash in the park.
Ramada Spokane Valley is a great pet-friendly hotel to make your trip to Veradale complete. For a small pet fee your dog can join you in your room.
Rest your paws and get ready for all the fun you’ll have tomorrow exploring Veradale, Washington!

Mirabeau Point Park is an oasis in the middle of Spokane Valley’s busiest neighborhood. This park boasts an impressive 55 acres! Dogs are allowed to explore the grounds, as long as they’re kept on leash and away from Mirabeau Point Park’s horse arena! Thankfully, with 55-acres, there’s so much else to see! Hiking this park has a host of perks, like viewing the river and waterfalls up close, ample picnic and BBQ opportunities, and a variety of hiking trails to suit all skill levels. Be sure to bring in your own water and a bowl to share, as with 55-acres, you can wind up far from a fountain!
Browns Park is a great dog-walking location every day of the year. Located in Chester, this busy area of Spokane Valley is only an 8 minute drive from the heart of Veradale. This park’s main features include a water cooling station (for humans only, and only during the summer) as well as year round volleyball nets and sports fields. Dogs will probably prefer just to walk, and Browns Park makes it easy! Lapping the park is a great way to get some steps in for the day and stretch your dog’s legs. The park is small enough that customizing your workout to how many laps you’d like to do is easy!
