This fenced off-leash haven for pooches of all sizes, the dog area at Fairmont Park in Manhattan, Kansas is located just a few minutes from downtown Manhattan, which makes it an ideal place for pet parents who would like to take their pooches somewhere after a busy day at work.
This gem of a site has a dedicated area for the protection and safety of little canines. We all know what can happen when big dogs mix with smaller ones. They can quickly get hurt or trampled upon by their bigger counterparts, albeit unintentional.
Inside the large dog area, there is agility equipment such as weaving pools, A-frames, and elevated tires so Spike can show off his circus tricks. There are water and dog waste stations which make it a lot easier for dog owners to make sure that their canines are hydrated at all times and also help keep the park clean and well-maintained.
However, there are no doggie bags available in premises, so it is the responsibility of pet parents to bring some for their use. The ground here at Fairmont Park Off-Leash Dog Area can get quite muddy after a downpour, so you might want to avoid the park after a night of rain.
There is a path alongside the large dog area where you can take Spike with you on a hike, but he has to be on a leash. The trail leads to the Kansas River and is the perfect spot for Spike to take a dip. Aside from the dog area, Fairmont Park is also used for various activities such as football, soccer, disc golf, and a newly constructed riverfront trail.
The Fairmont Park Off-Leash Dog Area is a unique riverfront site which possesses abundant, wide open spaces with large trees and an invaluable asset which gives the community the opportunity to embrace the river and also enjoy the recreational benefits that come with it.
