Today is the first day of spring and everyone has a little more pep in their steps – even our pets. Lucky for them, Columbia has multiple off-leash parks where your dog can play and socialize.
NOMA Bark Park is Columbia’s newest dog park and is located along North Main Street at Earlewood Park. Amenities include resting benches, water fountains, shade trees and convenient pet-waste disposal stations – as well as separate small dog and large dog play areas.
For a $25 yearly fee, members enjoy unlimited visits to the park as well as invitations to fun events like Yappy Hour and Howloween Bash throughout the year. You can follow NOMA Bark Park on Facebook for the latest news.
Doggie Park is another great spot for Spot to run with and hang with friends. This members-only park requires a $36 registration fee and provides water and plastic toys to chew on.
Emily Douglas Park is a free-of-charge dog park with plenty of shade and water for when your dog needs rehydration after running with friends.
