June 24, 2018. Finding out there is a dog park in Spokane Valley WA, I also find out there is a Walmart amendable to an overnight (or two) stay in their parking lot in Post Falls ID just a few miles from the park.
The Patricia Simonet Laughing Dog Park is located at the old rest area off I-90 in Spokane Valley (Liberty Lake). Easy to find and with the assurance from a clerk at the Walmart that is still there I go ahead and say it. “Do you want to go to the DOG PARK today?” All hell breaks loose and the boys get in a wrestling match, fierce but fake, and ends with fast tails wags as steady as a metronome. Got some happy dogs here!
This is a lovely, well-used dog park. Half of it is shaded with large trees and has a nice walking path. The other half is open with a nice sidewalk along the perimeter.
These two nice young guys spend about an hour at the park; Cleaning up dog poop! I stopped them when they were leaving to thank them for doing it. They seemed surprised, but told me they do it at the other dog park in town, too, but it’s really a mess there. How cool are these two young people!?!?
Just because there is this really nice dog park, populated with really nice dog lovers, we spend another night at Wally and visit again the next day. Thanks for stopping by 2DogsTravel!
