We all love our furry friends and want to take them everywhere we go. Luckily, Macon has plenty of options that welcome your pups with open arms (or paws)! 

Macon Dog Park 

The Macon Dog Park is a fully-fenced city block with areas for both small and large dogs to explore. Located in the heart of the College Hill Corridor, the park even holds a "Yappy Hour" once a month for owners and their dogs to hang out together.

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail 

The Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is the only riverside trail and park system in Central Georgia. Take a timeout from the chaos of everyday life with your pooch and enjoy a peaceful walk through Carolyn Crayton Park or Amerson Park. Many of Macon’s historic treasures can be found on along the trail including Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park, Rose Hill Cemetery, and Gateway Park

Lake Tobesofkee 

Lake Tobesofkee, a year-round recreation area covering nearly 1,800 acres, is the perfect place to have some fun in the sun with your pup (as long as they are on a leash).
