What a better way to get some morning exercise than taking your dog for a walk with a bunch of other pet lovers! The Pack Walk in the Park will be taking place at TY Park. It’s only $.150 to enter the park and you and your pet can get a good hour long walk with some other dogs and owners in the morning before the rest of the day begins. TY Park requires that all dogs be on a 6 foot leash, no flex leashes or retractable, and that your dog be ok with being around other dogs and in a crowd. Arrive by 8:45am because the walk starts promptly at 9am. Bring bags to clean up after your dog in case she has to make a pit stop.
It’s a two mile walk along a newly paved walkway in the park. This promises to be a good and fun activity.
