Best Place To Run The Pooch

St. Edward's Park

This park has it all: endless meadows in which to run or Frisbee, cliffsides to hike and explore, lots of wild animal scats to sniff, and an old spillway. Fido won't know where to go first, but you'll always know where he is no matter which way he chooses. The park is laid out in rough wedge. The fields open up into limestone cliffs and heavily wooded perimeters, the line of sight is uncluttered and the entire tract leads one away from dangerous roads. The park is usually not crowded, but the parking lot is a little tricky to spot.
