Tails on the Trails

Tails on the Trails will return Fall of 2017!

Tails on the Trails is an opportunity for you and your dog to stay active this fall. Each walk your dog completes earns a chance to win one of our weekly wag bag drawings. Complete 6 out of 8 walks for a chance to win our grand prize.

Join the Zionsville Parks for weekly group dog walks. A great opportunity for you and your dog to socialize and gather information about the parks and programs. PLUS, dogs that complete a group dog walk will earn an additional entry into the wag bag drawings. That's an additional 8 chances!

In addition to the walks:
  • Look for weekly Tails on the Trails Tips on Facebook.
  • Stop in at the Zion Nature Center, Town Hall, or one of our sponsors to collect your Tails on the Trails bandana (while supplies last).
  • Be sure to share your experience on social medial #tailsonthetrails2016.
  • Check out the TOP DOG BOARD at the Zion Nature Center to see how your dog ranks.
  • Zionsville Parks supports the Yellow Dog Project. If you see a dog with a yellow ribbon while out on the trails, remember to give them space. If your dog is a yellow dog, you may pick up a yellow ribbon at the Zion Nature Center or Town Hall during business hours.
