Where can I take my hound in Doncaster?
I cannot begin to recall the countless times my family have argued over where to walk our dog. Searching on the internet, trying to find somewhere nice that isn’t too far away, is free to enter and above all, is dog friendly. And by this, I mean where Finn, my 2 year old goldendoodle, can run free and stretch his (very long) legs. Soon, I began to realise, why do we need to travel to find a beautiful spot to spend some time outdoors when there are perfect places to visit right on your doorstep. Here are my top 3 places to get outdoors with your dog in Doncaster.
Doncaster’s Best Dog Walks RANKED No.3. Lakeside village
Most people have heard of Lakeside Village, a small outside shopping centre located near the Keepmoat Stadium, and some will know of the small lake and walk nearby – but you might not know the extent of how beautiful this place really is. The main path follows parallel to the road to begin with, leading to a little pebbly beach where the swans of the lake swim and walk nearby. If you carry on walking down this path, you will find yourself walking over bridges to small islands in the middle of the water. There’s parking available on the road and dogs are welcome, preferably on a lead (especially if your dog is uneasy with birds and swans). This is a picturesque area with beautiful views across the water – particularly at sunrise and sunset.
