For many dog owners, taking their little rascal to socialize with new four-legged friends at a local dog park is quite a common occurrence. It is no secret that our canine counterparts generally have a fantastic time no matter the locale. Their loving owners, however, can find the wide variety of these doggie playgrounds to be run-of-the-mill, a bit boring and generally unconcerned with catering to even the simplest of needs of we, the people. In many public dog parks, one would consider themselves lucky to find a porta-potty, much less a hot coffee or a (human-friendly) bite to eat. Allow me to introduce you to ParkGrounds, revolutionizing the way ATLiens do dog parks. Who says you can’t have it all?
Does taking your high-energy young pup to the dog park leave you groggy and seemingly deplete of all of your energy? Or perhaps your old mutt is so chill that you can sit back, kick up your feet and relax no matter what environment you’re hanging out in? Well, no matter where your pup falls within that wide range, or even if you don’t have a pup at all, ParkGrounds’ unique and open atmosphere definitely makes it deserving of a visit.
Who Will Love It
Not only do they cater to your hound, but just as importantly they cater to YOU. ParkGrounds offers first class coffee and espresso, locally baked pastries and breakfast items, delicious sandwiches (vegan options available) and a beer, liquor and wine list that will be sure to keep you hanging around all afternoon and into the night (howling at the moon optional). Parkgrounds is a must-stop shop for anybody looking to mix it up on their next doggie date, or simply just looking for a break from the norm.
