Dogs living in the Hyde Park community are lucky to have Nichols Park nearby. Although it’s just over 10 acres, this park has plenty of things for your four legged friend to discover. What are you waiting for? Grab the leash and head over for a puptacular time with your pooch!
Your furry pal will love walking around the paved paths
that wind through Nichols Park. They can get some much needed exercise while
also checking out the features of the park. Your pup will be impressed with the
pawsome wolf and heron statues that were carved out of old trees. They may run
into a neighbor at the community vegetable garden, or meet a new friend while
visiting one of the beautiful water fountains. If your pup likes to feel grass beneath their
paws, take a minute to wander around the open lawn areas. Paws for a rest under one of the mature shade trees.
Be sure to stop by the Nichols Park Natural Area. Your
doggo will agree, this tiny slice of nature is a welcome break from the chaos
of the surrounding muttropolis. Stroll along the path and enjoy the peaceful
atmosphere. Native prairie and savanna plants attract the local bees, birds,
and butterflies. Your pup may even spot a squirrel or two. If you happen to
visit during summer or early fall, you’ll be treated to a furrific display of
Human visitors can make use of the baseball field and
playground. There is also a fieldhouse with a gym and multipurpose room. Don’t
forget to always have some clean up bags on hand. Other park patrons will
greatly appreciate you stooping and scooping. It’s also a good idea to carry
some water, since your pup will be thirsty after touring this lovely park. No
bones about, Nichols Park will make your dog’s tail wag!
