Walla Walla is surrounded by farmland in the foothills of the eastern mountain ridge, on the southern border of Washington. The city is known for its fertile land, making it a large producer of wheat, asparagus, strawberries, and the famous Walla Walla Sweet Onions. What's also sweet about Walla Walla is the dog-friendly culture surrounding the city, with lots of love for pups and 6 veterinarians.
The Fort Walla Walla Dog Park is the rave around town, thanks to its grassy fields and shaded areas that are completely fenced in, allowing dogs to run around free off their leash. The park has separate areas for large and small dogs, benches, a water spigot with water bowls, double-gated entrances, and clean-up stations.
Pioneer Park is a large park on the eastern side of the city. The area has a huge landscape filled with dense forests and open fields, with a mile of paved walkways that are dog-friendly. The open areas are great for running around with Fido, or going out for a picnic and include additional amenities like water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins.
The Mill Creek Trail is another dog-friendly activity that's available in town. The popular walking trail follows 5.2 miles along the creek, made from concrete and asphalt with benches and trash bins. Dogs must remain on a leash on the trail.
Whether you need a long walk, a short stroll, or a day to play with Fido, Walla Walla has a space for every activity.
