Play fetch with Fido
Chisholm Creek Pet Resort Pup Park is just outside Wichita and requires a membership. The amenities might be worth the price tag for you and your pup, especially if you’re a city-dweller with little yard space. Chisholm Creek has a swimming pond, agility equipment, sand hills and shade trees with plenty of room for a game of fetch.
Wichita also has a few off-leash dog parks for you to enjoy without membership:
- Chapin Dog Park at 2466 E. MacArthur Rd
- Meridian Dog Park at 2127 N. Meridian Ave
- Murfin Animal Care Campus Dog Park at 3303 N. Hillside
Catch a show
SYLVIA at Roxy’s Downtown shows at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for Happy Hour! SYLVIA is a story about a stray dog looking for a new home in Greg and Kate’s recently emptied nest. A.R. Gurney’s SYLVIA is a smart, silly, sophisticated comedy about relationships and growing older.
While your furry friend is sure to enjoy the show, dogs can’t go to Roxy’s Downtown. Remember, it’s the thought that counts – and you have a chance to win a SYLVIA gift basket for your dog after the show!
