Keep in mind, dogs aren’t allowed inside of the taproom. However, on a nice day, you’ll find plenty of furry friends outdoors. Enjoy a beer and bring your pet to Hardywood West Creek.

Robious Landing Park is a short drive from Center West Apartments. This park offers 3.4 miles of walking trails that weave throughout the woods and along the James River. You and your dog will enjoy a beautiful, nature-filled walk with beautiful river views!

Browns Island & Belle Isle

Make the trip into the city to take in the beautiful James River views that Browns Island and Belle Isle offer!

Located right next to each other, no matter where you choose to walk your dog, you’ll get to experience some beautiful views of Richmond.
