Shorty Howell Park is a beautiful, 67 acre park located at 2750 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth. While this park doesn’t have any dog parks, it does have a 1.25 paved walking trail that you and your pooch can have a walk or a run on.
Beautifully, the park has a pond in the center that is filled with ducks, geese, turtles and more! But, per signage, the ducks are not to be fed so unfortunately, you’ll have to leave the bread at home.
Open from sunrise to 11pm (unless otherwise noted), this park is truly for the whole family. With multiple playgrounds, seven youth baseball fields, a multi-purpose field (that also has a lighted track), your family can have fun all day & end it with a cookout on the grills and pavilion.
Shorty Howell has a large community activity building that can be used for classes, rentals, and events that happen all year round.
Like previously stated, it does not have a true dog park but it is very dog friendly. Personally speaking, I go to Shorty Howell to use the trail and every time I’ve been there I have met plenty of pooches!
Shorty Howell is a beautiful park that you must check out if you and your fur friend are looking for a place to walk! For more information on the park or how to rent it out, click here.
