Has your pooch been moping around the house all day? Lift their spirits by taking them for a walk in Williams-Davis Park. Located in the Oakland neighborhood, it was once named Park Number 532. Furtunately, in 2012 it was renamed after Hattie Kay Williams and Izora Davis, two women who greatly contributed to the neighborhood.
At 2.85 acres, this park may be small, but it still has
plenty to offer. When you first arrive, your pup will see the unique sculpture
by Milton Mizenburg Jr. The bronze masterpiece is titled ‘Restoration.’ The name
is incredibly fitting. Where the recently developed park sits was once
dilapidated public housing. Once your pal gets a good look at the public art,
continue your walk along the paved pathways. The fresh air and sunshine will
put a bit of pep into their step!
Your pooch will be happy to know this park has a couple sections
of wide open lawn. They can romp around, on leash of course, or let their
sniffer get to work and discover all the new smells. Since the park is relatively
new, the trees haven’t had chance to grow expansive canopies. There is some
shade, but not a lot. If your doggo wants to take a time out from exploring,
find one of the benches and paws for a rest. If you have two legged children in tow, stop by the furrific playground
so they can get their wiggles out.
Since the park is not very large, it’s super impawtant that you bring some clean up bags and pick up after your dog. The limited space needs to remain free of doggy debris. Also, fill up a couple water bottles before leaving home, your pooch is bound to get thirsty during their visit.
A walk through Williams-Davis Park will certainly make your pup’s tail wag!
