Dog Walk Spots In Savannah GA

Pets/Animals - Pets

Introduction:

Savannah, Georgia is hot, and yet I see so many people out walking their dogs on the pavement. With no shade. At noon. I can't help but wonder what these people are thinking?? Of course walking your dog in the morning or evening when the temperature is a bit cooler helps, but location can greatly affect how enjoyable the walk is - both for you and your dog. Maybe these people don't realize some of the best places in Savannah that are available for walking dogs, so I compiled this list of some of my favorites. I hope they give people some better ideas for playtime with their pooches!

Fort Pulaski

This place is super dog-friendly AND it's the only place in Savannah that you can bring the dogs to the beach. Most people don't realize that if you follow the trail from the main path towards the picnic area, the several small trails to your right actually lead to another path closer to the ocean. There are a few tiny deer paths that go from the main path to the beach. The actual oceanfront square footage isn't very high, but it's more than enough room to let your dogs splash through the incoming waves.

There IS a fee to get in the park, but for $10, you can buy an annual pass that gets you in free year round. The rangers also have milkbones at the desk for your dogs!

Daffin Park

This is a great place for you and your dog to get some exercise. The key to enjoying Daffin Park is to get there either before or after the 5o'clock rush. 3PM is also relatively crowded since school lets out around then, and many students come here to enjoy the park as well. The loop around the park is about one and a half miles long, and the majority of it is shaded, making it a cool walk for both you and the dogs. The only downside is being right next to busy Victory Drive.

Lake Mayer

This south side gem is easily accessible from Truman Parkway, and although it doesn't allow dogs on the main trail, there is an area set up specifically for dog walkers. It's not the best or longest walk, but I added this one because it is one of the few good places for south side inhabitants to walk their dogs. The grass also makes it much cooler on your pooch's paws than walking on pavement.

Forsyth Park

A staple in terms of dog walking, this is a great place for anyone with a dog who loves to socialize. There are a number of zigzagging trails that cut through the north end of the park to lengthen your walk, or avoid that giant Great Dane that you fear might eat Fifi! With ample grass and concrete sidewalk to accommodate any preference, Forsyth Park is a great choice because it has something to offer everyone.

Savannah Wildlife Refuge

This place is off the beaten path (think, all the way down Highway 17, across the Tallmadge Bridge!) but it is one of the best, most unique dog walks around. You can see plenty of local wildlife on your walk, including alligators, so be sure to hold tight to your dog. The refuge is also well shaded with plenty of trees and cool ground to walk on.




Final Thoughts

So next time you're taking your pooch for a walk, consider these places to keep both you and him cool this summer.
