Apollo Crater Park

This off-leash dog park is located at 600 Apollo Way and is friendly for dogs of all sizes. It’s essentially a crater, as the name suggests, covered in grass and ready for your four-legged friend to burn off some energy. Some frequent guests have suggested this park is best suited for dogs with good recall skills and who aren’t at risk from running away. Located at the edge of the park is a children’s play area, so the whole family can spend some time at Apollo Crater with no one left behind (except maybe the cat!)

Corner Bar and Grill

Looking for a bite to eat? Corner Bar and Grill at 1779 Tenth Line Road has a large patio area where you—and your dog—can sit outside and enjoy made-from-scratch pub food like burgers, sandwiches, nachos and more. They’re also serving up a large collection of craft beer, but that’s just for you, not the dogs!
