On the middle of the Kansas and Blue Rivers sits the city of Manhattan, Kansas. Manhattan is a pet-friendly community that has so many panoramic views and a rich history that locals and tourists both love. Among their two dog parks Cico and Fairmont, is a third park, Wildcat Park. This park is three miles west of Manhattan and is a nature lovers dream.
Wildcat Park is a wilderness nature park that is filled with mature trees, trails to explore, and grassy plains. The park is rich in wildlife that is native to that area including birds and forest animals. There are tables and picnic areas within Wildcat Park for you to rest and eat at.
Dogs are allowed off-leash throughout this park. Your pooch may even like to enjoy a little romp in the stream. The park is a traditional fenced-in dog, but more of a nature preserve, so be sure that your dog has a good handle on voice commands. While visiting Wildcat Park be sure to bring water and doggie waste bags to make your trip a bit more enjoyable for you and your pooch.
Also, it is important to always clean up after yourself and your dog. You should have your dog leash with you at all times. Dogs should be leashed upon entering and leaving the park. Keep in mind your dog should be up to date on all vaccines and have the proper license in order to visit Wildcat. Aggressive dogs will need to leave the park.
In addition, no puppies under the age of three will be admitted into the Wildcat Park. Whether you want to relax and have a picnic or just run and play with your four-legged friend, Wildcat Park has a wide array of fun things for you to do and see. Manhattan is a nature-lovers city and Wildcat is just one of its many attractions.
