Has your pup been lying around all day? Then grab the leash and head over to Indian Boundary Park for a pawsome afternoon walk! Not only is this park a pawfect spot for some exercise, it also has an interesting past. Its name comes from a territorial boundary between the United State government and the Pottawattomie Indians that was created with the Treaty of 1816. The boundary line once ran right through what is now the park.
A puptacular network of paved paths weaves throughout
this urban green space. Let your pup be the guide as you walk, run, or jog
around the trails. Be sure to check out the pond so your pup can see the
goldfish and turtles. In the summer, this part of the park can be swarming with
mosquitoes, so wear some bug spray. Also, be sure to carry some clean up bags
and pick up after your furry pal.
If your doggo prefers wandering aimlessly to walking on
the paths, they are in luck. There is more than enough open lawn for sniffing. They can roam around to their heart’s content, on leash of
course. Plenty of shade trees are scattered around the park. They provide some
relief from the muggy summer temperatures or a nice place to relax with your
pooch after a long walk. Don’t forget to bring some water and a doggy bowl from
home. Your pooch will be thirsty and a long drink of water will help put the
pep back in their step.
Indian Boundary Park also features four tennis courts and
a furrific playground for two legged children. Perhaps the park is most known
for the Indian Boundary Park and Culture Center. Artists young and old come
here for painting, music, dance, and singing lessons. Theatrical performances
and community events are also held here throughout the year.
A walk in Indian Boundary Park will definitely make your
pooch one happy hound!
