We live very close to Palmer Park and go there often to walk. There are lots of hiking/biking/horseback trails in the park. We go to the one that allows dogs to go off-leash because there are almost no bikers and horse back riders there. Some of the trails are a bit rough, so if you don't have a lot of... 更多
