Unfortunately, whether it is a pet product or a good park you desire, if you live in this area, you should expect to be driving a while. That being said, there are a few local options that could really help a pet parent in a bit of a pinch. Although there are no local vets or pet hospitals which can be really unsettling for some pet owners, there is a groomer located at the Canine Country Club and Wellness Center as well as a pet supply store called the FETCH Dog Store.
Although there are some man-made neighborhood parks, a large majority of the residents in this area most likely stick to neighborhoods lined with houses for their daily walks. Although this can seem unfathomable for some who especially admire nature or have an affinity for hiking, for some, this area is just perfect. \
The majority of residents in this area are families with younger children. This aligns very well with the environment because of the added safety provided for the children. Not only is the flat terrain itself more safe when it comes to preventing injery or overheating, but the neighborly suburbs provide extra protection for some.
Glencoe Park is one of the oldest man-made parks in the area, dating back to 1944. This very traditional park features basketball, softball, and tennis courts, as well as trails and a play area. Tietze Park is another very popular one with lots of trees for shade, a pool, a playground, a picnic area, and several sports areas. A final great option in the area is Garrett Park.
