Dogs in Fort Thomas know where to go to socialize with the neighbors- the Fort Thomas Dog Park! Inside the pawtastic Highland Hills Park, dogs of all sizes can get their play on in this off leash pupperdise.
Located north of the baseball diamond, you can find the dog park at the end of Mayfield Avenue where there's a parking lot. A double gated entry is all that stands between your dog and off leash freedom. And with full chain link fencing, you can feel safe with your dog running wild. For the smaller of pooches, a separate small dog area is just for pups 22 pounds and under. There's a bench in the small area for you to relax on while your little bestie romps on the grass too.
The big dog area is rather large, with multiple benches and lots of space. The front area is mostly dirt and woodchips, while further in, the space continues into the woods for those pups who love to explore. Take to the trails and check out the carved wood sculptures, or forge your own path. One part of the dog park has a steep incline which may be difficult for some pet owners, mature dogs, or pets with mobility problems.
Since it is unclear of the the park provides clean-up bags, be sure to bring your own and promptly pick up after your pup. A water fountain for humans and doggos is located right outside the dog park for thirsty pups. To access it, you dog will need to go back on leash, or you can fill up water jugs and bowls to take inside the off leash area with you. Bottled water and drinking bowls are also strategically placed throughout the dog park, but can run out. Note that the dog park does prohibit pit bull terriers.
If your dog has had enough of socializing, you can clip the leash back on and explore the rest of Highland Hills Park. With more walking trails, your dog is sure to get tuckered out. Picnic areas and shelters are pawfect for a rest or a meal, and restrooms for the humans are on site.
