Local Dog Parks

Mr. Pickles Dog Park

Mr. Pickles is very excited to let you know that he has created a very special park for you while you are staying at The Park on Main – Mr. Pickles Dog Park. Mr. Pickles Dog Park is located a block from the hotel at the intersection of Spring Street and 2nd Street.

The park is fully enclosed with a fence, so that my four-legged friends can run around while not on a leash. In the park, we have a Doggie Station and several chairs and benches. The park has lighting, so it is open 24/7 for your family pet to enjoy even at night. The majority of Mr. Pickles Dog Park is covered in grass, with the remaining area in small pebbles.

Highlands Dog Park

Your pet will be pleased to take a walk to the Highlands Dog Park at Foreman Road and Fourth Street. The park is fully fenced with separate areas for small, skittish or elderly dogs. The park base is made of mulch and the park has a covered area. Water is also available for thirsty pets. Email

Our Illustrious Mascot—Mr. Pickles

We would be remiss in letting you know, by the way, that when you do visit us, one Mr. Pickles is more than happy to provide you with a warm greeting at the door.

As an esteemed member of The Park on Main® staff, Mr. Pickles exemplifies the unique form of hospitality we offer our guests and often mingles with both pets and humans during special occasions.

Mr. Pickles is a handsome black Scottish Terrier and serves nobly – most of the time – as our illustrious mascot here at our luxury pet-friendly hotel.
