Wag! Walkers know Mary Oaks

Mary Oaks is a beautiful neighborhood right in the heart of Des Moines. Although there is not much in the way of pet services, there is enough to cover the basic needs of any of your pets. Luckily, there are some amazing veterinarians and pet hospitals in the area to ensure that your pet will be in great hands should anything ever happen to them as well as ensuring they have a great place to go for regular check-ups, shots, and anything else your pet may need to stay safe and healthy. Some of the best hospitals in the area include Animal Medical Clinic of Mary Hay and Riordan Pet Hospital. This area also has a pet grooming location known as Snip Doggy Dog. This is the perfect place to get your pet looking good.


The weather in Des Moines is generally moderate with highs peaking in the upper 80s and lows in the teens.聽

What is the terrain like in Mary Oaks?

This area has a very good mix when it comes to topography. Although some areas of the city are relatively flat, there is a large number of hilly areas that appear in clusters. This makes Mary Oaks the perfect spot because it is just wedged between two of these hilly regions. It is very easy to find a flat path for more relaxing walks, yet also very easy to find some tougher hills for a more strenuous workout.聽This area is also pretty even in natural and artificial terrain, given its location next to a large city and several hill ranges.聽


Mary Oaks is also lucky enough to have a very strong community and government support of nature and beauty continuing to thrive within the community. This is evident through the inclusion of several beautiful man-made parks as well as countless neighborhoods in the area featuring beautiful walking paths surrounded by unique front lawn greenery.

How many greenways are there in Mary Oaks?

The highest rated park in this area is Sargent Park. This beautiful traditional neighborhood park includes walking and biking trails, a play area, and picnic tables. Another outstanding park in this area is Union Park which has been around since 1892 and features a water play area, barbecue pits, sports courts, the Union Park Historic Rocket Slide play area, and the Heritage Carousel- Des Moines. The Heritage Carousel features thirty beautifully hand-carved and painted animals. This park also has access to the Des Moines River.聽


Another must-see location is Riverview Park. This beautiful location was an amusement park from 1915-1978 which began as a zoological garden. It is now a beautiful park featuring a disk golf course, biking and walking trails, and several lake and river entrances.聽


Some other great neighborhood parks include Franklin Field Park, McHenry Park, Witmer Park, Beaverdale Park, Westchester Park, and Woodlawn Park, so you're never short on options.
