Garth Nature Area

2799 North Garth Avenue
Columbia, MO 65201

The 3-acre dog park at Garth Nature Area is fenced all around and has a pond and picnic tables. Parking is available and a port-a-pot is on site. A permanent restroom facility is on the list of projects to be funded by the 2010 Park Sales Tax Ballot and is tentatively scheduled for Fiscal Year 2014, pending the public hearing process and City Council approval. Dog owners may also enjoy taking their dogs on leash for a walk on the 1.6 miles of wetland trails nearby or getting on the 4.8-mile Bear Creek Trail.
