Formerly called Millennium Park, Letty Towles Dog Park was named after Letty Towles, who founded the park and contributed so much of her time to its success. The park boasts 4.5 acres of a beautiful, fenced-in open space where pooches of all sizes can run and play in complete freedom. The park is divided into two sections, one for larger dogs and another for smaller pooches.
Four-legged friends will immensely enjoy tackling the culvert, frolicking with other doggies, going through the concrete tunnels, and visiting the water stations for a cool lap of water. It is one of the best places for pooches to show off their socialization skills and for pet parents to become acquainted with other people who fancy dogs.
If your dog has been tiring you out with all the running and playing, you can always seek refuge from one of the benches under the pavilion or cool off under the canopy or the numerous large Oak trees there. Remember that children under the age of twelve years old and pooches that are not neutered or spayed are not allowed in the Letty Towles Dog Park.
The Letty Towles Dog Park at Millennium Park does not allow smoking and eating. Poop bags are available all throughout the park, so there is no need to bring them. There are also trash cans all over so make sure that you throw dog waste in the correct places. There is water in the park, so there is no need to bring extra water bottles for yourself and your pooch.
