Is your furry friend getting antsy from staying indoors all day? Let them run loose and blow off steam at the Banchoff Dog Park! Also known as the John and Anna Karras Memorial Dog Park, this pawsome puppy playground offers a safe environment for Ewing's canine residents to stretch their legs and socialize with other dogs sans leash. It'll quickly become one of your pooch's favorite spots in town!
Visitors say that the dog park is well-hidden and that there are no signs guiding the way, so it may be a bit difficult to locate if you haven't been there before. From the parking lot, go around the pond and follow the path up the hill to get to the dog park, which has been recently upgraded thanks to the generous donation of the late history professor John Karras.
What used to be a 100-by-255-foot single enclosure is now a spacious canine hangout with separate areas for large and small doggos. Both sections are surrounded by fences that are high and deep enough to keep jumpers and diggers from escaping, but that doesn't mean you don't have to watch your furry charge anymore! Always supervise your pup so that everyone has a pawsitive time. Other amenities include agility obstacles, dog waste stations, human and canine water fountains, and a gazebo for shade.
If your four-legged pal still has energy to burn after romping in the dog park, take them for a leashed stroll around the rest of the 70-acre Banchoff Park. Paved pathways, hiking trails, and open green space are waiting to be explored, and your pooch will surely be tuckered out when it's time to go home. Picnic tables are available if you need to pawse and rest during your walk.
For a furrific, leash-free time in Ewing, head on over to the Banchoff Dog Park with Fido!
