Open from sunrise to sunset and located north of Farmington Road, Vicary Bottoms Off-Leash Dog Area at Kickapoo Creek is highly recommended, but because it is unfenced, only well-trained dogs are allowed in the property. Only two healthy dogs are allowed per owner. Small dogs have to mingle with canines of larger sizes as there is no dedicated area for tiny and timid pups.
This also means that pet parents have to be more vigilant in watching over their dogs and making sure that they are having a great time and not getting trampled by larger canines. There are no water facilities so pet parents must remember to bring their refilled water jug to ensure that both them and their dogs do not end up getting dehydrated while at the park.
There are no restroom facilities too, so it makes sense to use the toilet first before heading to the park. At Vicary Bottoms Off-Leash Dog Area at Kickapoo Creek, you can spend a relaxing afternoon with your pooch, and you may also book a ride through the town from Carriage Classics. Carriage Classics allow one pooch to ride along the horse-drawn carriage adventure at no additional fee.
