“The Bachelor” has ended, award season is over, and Wisconsinites are now impeding the inevitable doom that is boredom. I, however, have made it my goal this spring to overcome the post-reality TV depression. Mother Nature has gifted Wisconsin with spring early this year, so it’s time for hikes along Lake Michigan and coffee in the Third Ward.


70 degrees. Blooming trees. Clear skies. Could it be true; has spring officially arrived? Or is it summer? Let’s not get our hopes up yet, but why not take advantage of it while it’s here. Not only have we been cooped up all winter long, but our four-legged friends have also been too. Just as we’ve been dying to get outside and bask in the sun, dogs have been itching to run and play like there’s no tomorrow. So this week my two Golden Doodles and I ventured to Muttland Meadows located in Grafton.

The vast seven acres of MuttLand Meadows provides constant stimulation for every Dog.

Muttland Meadows is every dog-owner’s dream dog park. It’s fenced in and has a no-leash rule so your pup can frolic freely without causing you any anxiety. Plus, scattered throughout the park are water bowls and garbage cans with pooper-scoopers, so no need to worry about bring your own water bowl or poop bags! Adding to this, unlike most leash-requiring parks, you can’t get in unless you are accompanied by a dog.

Sometimes there are too many options, and dogs at Muttland Meadows can't decide who to play with or what to sniff.

Nothing makes me or any dog owner happier than seeing their dog happy, and when they’re at Muttland Meadows, they’re happy. The dogs have the choice to either play in the fields with other canines or sniff around on the many trails in the seven acre park. Either way tails will be wagging.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes can be found at Muttland Meadows.

Another great thing about Muttland Meadows is the community. Everyone there loves dogs, and not just their own. Same goes for the dogs: they love everyone and highly appreciate it when strangers give them love. So do your dog a solid and take them to Muttland Meadows, where they can run, sniff, roll and play safely.
