ST. LOUIS — Lambert Airport in St. Louis has opened two outdoor rest areas where traveling animals can spend a few minutes off the leash and play.

Lambert officials say the miniature dog parks have 400 square feet of gated space with benches, fire hydrants and plastic mitts for pet owners to clean up after their animals.

Lambert spokesman Jeff Lea said Tuesday that several airports have created areas for pets and service animals to exercise, play and relieve themselves between flights.

The area in the Main Terminal has synthetic turf and is located outside exit MT-6. The East Terminal location has natural grass and is outside the baggage claim area at exit ET-15.
