Letting your dog run free isn’t always a walk in the park. But Springfield Park District officials are reminding you that there are a couple of places where you can do that.
Generally, dogs are required to remain on a leash in city parks. Stuart Park has two fenced-in dog runs… one for bigger dogs and one for little ones.
And at Riverside Park, dogs are allowed to run off-leash in the lower section of the park, which is not fenced in. The dog runs are open daily from dawn to dusk.
