A Pet Lover's Guide
If you have a dog there are many things you can do together around the city of Bloomington as well some of the surrounding lakes in the area. There are off the Leash Dog Parks in the area as well as the one located at the Woods at Latimer, such as the Griffy Lake Nature Preserve Dog Park, the Ferguson Dog Park, and the Karst Farm Dog Park which requires you to register and pay an annual fee for 2 separate areas, one for larger dogs and one for smaller dogs.
There are a few Pet Friendly Restaurants and stores in our area as well , but things change from time to time so it’s best if you call ahead to make sure that they still allow pets at their establishment.
