Top 10 Dog Parks


Concord Dog Park in Knoxville, TN – Our favorite dog park! This is a free, public park built by Petsafe, with several areas. There is enough grass, in addition to a woods area and the center being light gravel with lights. The best part is the swim area, fenced separately, with the best dock and plenty of other ways to enter, including a nice ramp. Our dogs love going here, and we make the trip to Knoxville multiple times per year.



Wags Park in Cincinnati, OH – This is a private park, but offers reasonably-priced day passes. All of the dogs are temperament tested before entering, which makes for no worry knowing all the dogs will behave (there are also staff members in the park to take care of any problems). Perfect size with 2 good-sized grass areas, a very nice man-made pond with a dock, and agility equipment. Also, there is a lot of seating, a bar on site, and a huge TV for owners to enjoy. Very nice and worth the price.


Beaus Dream Dog Park

Beau’s Dream Dog Park in Lancaster, PA– Really cool park designed by Beneful. All turf and 2 sides. It is the perfect size, with a water feature, a tennis ball launcher, and a walking bridge. Owners can enjoy it on the patio/deck area with wooden Adirondack chairs, under a shade structure. A very unique park that we highly recommend.



Newtown Dream Dog Park in Johns Creek, GA – We find ourselves in Atlanta once or twice each year and always make a trip to nearby Johns Creek for this park. This was also designed by Beneful, is mostly turf (also has a small woodsy area) and has a cool water feature, an arch bridge for the dogs with tunnels underneath, and a shaded picnic table area in the back. The park also has lights, so you can spend many hours there.


Dog Wood Park in Jacksonville, FL – A private dog park, again with a reasonable day pass. This place is huge! 25 fenced acres, with separate areas. One is a large area with some obstacles and a pond. Next is a wooded area, cool for hiking with the dogs off leash. There is also an agility area and a small dog area. So much to do here, and many areas for the dogs to explore.


Macon Dog Park in Macon, GA – A large grass park with a long creek to cool off, several bridges to cross, agility equipment, and lots of trees. Very well maintained and lots of fun.


James Island County Park Dog Park in Charleston, SC – This is a public dog park, but there is a small fee to enter the park. There is a large pond past a grass area. A great place to swim and easy entry for the dogs. There are also several seating options.


Heritage Trail Dog Park

Heritage Trail Dog Park in Hilliard, OH – Columbus is a very dog-friendly city, and this is our favorite park in the area. It is only 2 years old, and has a cool water feature, a shelter, and grass with a walking path through the first half of the park. The large side has 2 in-ground tunnels for dogs to go over or through.


broemmelsiek Dog park

Broemmelsiek Dog Park in Wentzville, MO – This park is near St. Louis, and the centerpiece is a good-sized pond with a dock. There is a large shelter near the entrance, light gravel to the pond, and grass for the dogs to run in another area.


Freedom Barks Dog Park in Medford, NJ – A huge park with several areas, separated by lines of trees. There are lots of creeks, agility equipment, and many very large areas for a game of chase or catch. The park is a long walk from the parking lot, but the dogs love it.
