If you are getting bored of the usual dog walk around the block, make the most of the Summer by exploring some of the best places to visit with your pup in tow.
In and around Preston, there are numerous options to chose from, and we have collected some of the most beautiful, and vast.
Take a look at our top eight sugggestions below:
1. Avenham and Miller Park, Preston
Where better to start than right here in the centre of Preston? This riverside park dates back to the 1860s and remains a beautiful destination for people from across Lancashire. With plenty of grass to frolic in and clean pathways to stroll, it's a safe park to let your dog off its leash.

3. Beacon Fell, Preston
Not as much of a walk in the park as our previous two Preston entries, this hill offers a more challenging trip for your dog. Standing 233 metres high, Beacon fell offers panarmoic views of 271 acres of land for you to enjoy whilst your dog can explore lead free.
