5 Places to Walk Your Dog Around Auburn

Bringing a dog to college or getting a dog in college can require a lot of time, but thankfully Auburn is incredibly dog-friendly. Here are 5 places that Auburn students like to walk their furry friends.

1. Kiesel Park

Kiesel Park is located at 520 Chadwick Ln, Auburn, AL 36832. It features a 2 1/4 mile trail where you can take your dog off leash. The park also has a fenced dog play area and provides potty bags along with trash cans for your furry friends.

Mary Margaret Vansant, Auburn University junior and proud owner of Iza says,"I take Iza to Kiesel because there is plenty of space for her to run and she doesn't have to stay in the dog park area. There is space to be away from other people and she doesn't have to stay on leash."

Located on the corner of Thatch Avenue and College Street, the iconic Samford Hall has a beautifulgreen space to bring your pup! Downtown is close by if you need to cool off with some Toomer's Lemonade.

Kenny Moss, a senior Geology student, photographer, and proud owner of Echo, says, "There are always other dogs for him to play with."

The photographer side of Moss says it is a classic photo spot. "Any true Auburn dog has a picture in front of Samford," says Moss. 

3. Ag Heritage Park "The Red Barn"

On the southwest corner of Samford and Donahue, Ag Heritage Park is 30 acres of fun for your pet. The green area is great for a game of frisbee. The property is run by the Auburn University College of Agriculture and Agricultural Alumni Association.

Aura Reyna, Auburn sophomore and proud owner of Rico says, "The Red Barn is super cute with the picnic areas and it also has big fields."

The 2.5-acre pond is a highlight of the park."I love watching Rico jump into the lake to chase his ball," says Reyna.

Chewacla State Park is a quick 10-minute drive from Auburn's campus. The 696 acres of trails, lakes, creeks and open area make it a great place to bring your energetic pet. The entry fee for the park is $4 for a one-time visit or $100 for an annual pass.

Junior, Will Bryan, enjoys taking his husky, Naomi, to Chewacla. "There are a lot of fun trails and she really likes to go in the creeks," says Bryan. "It is a great way to get her energy out and I know she is having fun."

Town Creek Park is located off of Gay Street, a mile from the heart of the Auburn campus. The park features open fields, a walking trail, and pond. A new trail is currently being built around the pond. Like Kiesel Park, there is not a leash rule,  your pup can roam where they wish. The trails are covered by large pine trees and greenery making the park a nice escape.

Auburn junior, Sam Groover, says, "My favorite part of the park is how close it is to campus, it is easy to get to when you don't have a ton of time."
