How to Have a Vacashun in the City with the Big Bridge

~ by Winston, aka Good Boy.

The Big Bridge City’s Best Dog Parks 

Popson Park 
950 60 Ave W
Deep in the west coulees of Lethbridge is Popson Park. With how quiet it is, you forget that you are still in the city. There’s approximately 2 km of pathways and 50 acres of park space for you and your good boy or girl to burn off energy. The park is very scenic as the path follows the coulee and winds itself along the Oldman River.

Pavan Park
80 - 62 Avenue North
With over 10km of walking and hiking trails and 125 hectares of natural park area, Pavan Park is one of Lethbridge’s hidden gems. The area is perfect for a weekend walk with a dog and taking some photos with the family.

Scenic Dog Run
1107 - 6th Street South
On the south side of Lethbridge overlooking the majestic coulees is the Scenic Drive Dog Run. It’s an off-leash dog area with a 2km pathway leading down into the coulee and loops back to the parking area. There’s a bit of elevation on this path and can provide a good workou. It’s also the perfect spot for a sunset stroll.

RiverStone Dog Park
4 RiverGrove Lane West
Lethbridge’s newest fenced-in dog park is the RiverStone Dog Park. The large play area features play equipment, sloping hills, and a drinking fountain (only in summer) for your pooch to enjoy, and tables for the owners to sit at and watch their dogs frolic.

Indian Battle Park
200 Indian Battle Road South
Conveniently located in the Oldman River Valley, just a short drive down the coulee from downtown Lethbridge, you’ll find this oasis in the city. Indian Battle Park is full of interconnected trails and pathways that are an ideal sniffing ground for your four-legged friends.

Peenaquim Park Dog Run
Stafford Drive and 26 Avenue North
Heading to Peenaquim Park will give you and your dog a gorgeous natural coulee setting with a huge fenced off-leash training area. It’s a perfect spot to let your dog burn off their energy.

Other Popular On-Leash Parks

There is no shortage of walking trails throughout Lethbridge. All quadrants of the city have beautiful parks and recreation areas for you and your dog to go for a walk, just remember to keep them on a leash and pick up any waste. Popular dog-walking spots include Henderson Lake, Nicholas Sheran Park, and Botterill Bottom Park.

Dog-Friendly Attractions

Personally, i think every day should involve eating white fluffy sparkly stuff. but if u are a fair-weathered pooch or ur humans don’t like chills, then the big bridge city has other ideas. for ur consideration.

Canine Massage

Your pooch deserves to be pampered on his or her vacation. Massages for dogs are known to have many benefits to help improve their livelihood and Sam’s Puppy Playhouse is the only business that offers this service. They’ve also been awarded the “Best Doggy Daycare” in Lethbridge so you know your pup is in good hands.

Indoor Dog Park

If the weather is not cooperating, make a visit to Pawtime Indoor Dog Park. They have over 10,000 square feet indoors for your dog to enjoy and socialize with other dogs. And while you’re there, why not consider getting some grooming done, or use one of their handy bathing stations to clean up your canine.

Spotlight Rooms

Finally, it’s not a vacation unless you have photos to prove it. Lethbridge’s newest attractions - the photogenic Spotlight Rooms - are dog-friendly! Will your dog pose in a bathtub, a beach chair, or more? There are five rooms to choose from.

Dog-Friendly Patios

If there is a warm spell in Lethbridge, you may find a patio open! A trip to Coulee Brew or Theoretically Brewing will allow you to soak up the sun, while enjoying some local beverages (craft beer for the humans, and a bowl of water for the pooches).

Other Things to do in the Area

After a trip to the big bridge city, u will need long naps. there is so much to do. but. if u have spare energy, like me, then tell ur humans to go a bit further. there are hoodoos. they have less sticks but are fun to run in. there are also mountains nearby. lots of sticks there.

Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park

Alberta’s newest UNESCO World Heritage Site is less than 90 minutes away, and a must-see destination. With fewer visitors in winter, and when snow sparkles atop the hoodoos, it is a truly magical experience.

Waterton Lakes National Park

This lesser-visited park in the Canadian Rockies is another must-see, and in the snowy months, the crowds thin even further. Yet there’s snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to do, dark sky interpretation tours and so much more. You and your good boy can even just enjoy a winter picnic at one of the enclosed camp kitchens in the park.

See You Soon!
