“The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.” - Samuel Butler
If you’re among the more than 43 million American households that own at least one dog, consider checking out Paws-abilities Place (at Badger Mountain Community Park) with your canine companion(s). The park has a fenced-in area with bark mulch, designed as a space for dogs to play leash-free. This is the first permanent space designated just for dogs within Richland.
This 2.5 acre park is currently closed for the winter as crews repair sod, expand the park and make additional upgrades. Check back here for updates on re-opening in Spring 2017.
Paws-abilities Place is normally open during regular park hours.
When several dogs pack together, it can lead to trouble. Please separate your dog from the pack to a neutral area. It is important that handlers stay aware but let the dogs have fun and relax.
