As far as Californian cities go, Folsom is pretty much a dog’s paradise. With plenty of walking and hiking trails as well as some dog parks, there are plenty of places in the city that a dog owner might want to call home.
While just about every neighborhood in Folsom has an enjoyable spot for your dog to run around, there’s one certain location that guarantees your canine companion will have a chance to socialize. The FIDO Field Dog Park is a popular hangout for all dog breeds and sizes. There’s also water bowls and drinking fountains for both dogs and humans alike. The dog park is also located within a larger park called the Cummings Family Skate and Bike Park making this a great place to take the family and pets. The park is not located inside a neighborhood, but both The Parkway and Willow Creek Estates South are within close proximity to the park.
If your dog is one that loves the water, then you are going to want to be as close to Folsom Lake as possible. And there’s no better neighborhood to do that from then Briggs Ranch. Briggs Ranch is located on the north side of Folsom, this suburban neighborhood is within walking distance to Folsom Lake allowing you and your dog to have a pleasant walk by the water, or even go for a swim. There are plenty of hiking trails around the water’s edge, allowing you to see some pretty historic sites including the Folsom State Prison and the Folsom Dam if your willing to walk a few miles.
But say your dog is not quite the swimming type , but still enjoys the coolness of being by the water. Take your furry friend to Willow Creek. Willow Creek runs through a few neighborhoods but is predominantly is located near Prairie Oaks. Much like Folsom Lake, there are also paths that run along the side of this creek and much like FIDO Field you’re bound to meet other dogs and dog owners near Willow Creek.
