We love our four-legged friends! Over half of the hotels in Rolla are pet-friendly, so we wanted to highlight some fun things to do with your pup.
A visit to Rolla’s first-ever dog park! Buehler Park features three fenced yards for off-leash play, each with waste stations, water fountains, and seating for pet owners. Easily located off I-44 and just down the road from PetSmart, we recommend a trip to the dog park!
This trail is a gem to the Rolla community! The Acorn Trail crosses through the city in a huge loop and connects several parks and landmarks with over seven miles. Three miles of this trail is alongside a small river and can be used for both leisure and transportation; cyclists, walkers, dog-walkers, and others can take advantage of the paved pathway to get outside and have fun. Dogs do need to be on a leash while on this beautiful trail.
This beautifully landscaped outdoor space at Public House Brewing Company in St. James welcomes you and your canine pal. The outdoor seating area is the perfect relaxation station to enjoy a cold beverage, amazing food, games, and the occasional live music.
