Description
Formally named Daniel Webster Park, visitors and residents typically shorten the name to Webster Park. The green space outfitted with many benches provides a calm, quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city, and welcomes leashed pups for walks with their humans. With entrances on East 14th Street and South Indiana Avenue, the park features several walking paths, including a large oval almost in the center with connecting sidewalks out to the perimeter. 


A two-level water fountain is a central attraction in this open environment, and flowers and green plants are planted everywhere along the paths and in bunches on the lawns. A covered, curved shelter supported by cement columns provides a shady place to sit on one of the benches beneath it. Street lamps light the way as you meander along the walks in the evening.

Open year-round, walking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing with your pup in tow is a great way to continue exercise for both of you in the winter. In summer, Nights Out in the Park welcome your fur-baby to join you on the lawn for movies, concerts and other events. Remember to bring water for you and your furry bestie, and waste bags, too. 

One of the popular stops for visitors to this park is a group of sculptures named Duo United that are installed near the southeast corner of the East 14th Street entrance. These linear stainless steel sculptures explore both linear and curved artistic expression with various hues on each one. On your walk with Fido you may find yourself circling the sculptures again and again to get different perspectives and enjoy the evolving forms as you move around them. Your pup won't mind - doggos may not have an eye for art, but love walking, even if it's in circles!

From tots running laps on the path, or frolicking on the grass, to seniors parked on benches watching the world go by, there's much to see and you can expect your pooch will get lots of attention!
