Dog Walking in Riverton

Riverton is a mountainous town, lying in the Wind River Valley, right on the fork of the Wind River. The town is surrounded by foothills in the distance. "The Rendezvous City" is the town's nickname which brings together culture from the past, present, and future. Even for pups, the city is always trying to expand, and so far has included multiple dog-friendly parks to their park system, and five veterinarians.

Jaycee Park is the largest park in Riverton, providing residents and pups with a grassy, open area that is surrounded by trees and open fields. Pups must remain on a leash inside the park, but can enjoy the enclosed baseball field, fishing pond, and paved walkways. Additional features include water fountains, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, benches, and trash bins.

The Rein Park Soccer Complex is another dog-friendly place to head to, with a large open field surfaced in vibrant grass that's well kept throughout the year. The complex is completely open, with some shaded benches and a gravel parking lot with trash bins. Dogs are not required to be on a leash here, but you should remember to bring some water and clean-up bags.

With a beautiful landscape that surrounds the town coupled with the dog-friendly openness of the city, you and Fido will be thrilled to call Riverton home.
