PETsMART Dog Park at Washington Park Overview

PETsMART Dog Park at Washington Park is one of the most popular off leash dog parks in Phoenix. At over 2.5 acres, this park is fully fenced with separate entrances and areas for small and large dogs. Watering stations, benches, and mutt mitt dispensers are also on site. Dogs should be kept on leashes until they enter the play area, and owners must pick up after their pets. After heavy rainfall, the park may be closed to allow the turf to dry. Throughout the year, the park is also closed sometimes for flood irrigation. Call for information on wet condition and flood irrigation closure updates.

Small dogs have nothing but fun!
Robb in Phoenix
99% of any problems with mean dogs happen in the large dog portion. I have been going to the small dog section since the park opened and my 3 dogs love it! Great dogs, great owners, much cleaner than the large section, tables, shade, water. Attentive owners who only want everyone to have fun!!

I have a 4 month old, and he has a great time there. It is a large area where the dogs can run and interact. The dog owners are all friendly, and it is a great place to go to allow your dogs to become more socialable.

Surprised someone said the dogs are not friendly. I go to this park everyday during the week, and find the same dogs each day, well behaved, and the people are very nice. It is the largest dog park in PHX, green grass, lots of trees.

This park is large and donated by petsmart. There is a very large closed gate fence for large dogs and a smaller then average closed gate for little dogs. Because of the heat I recoment going early in the day or later at night. There were always a lot of dogs when we went, all very playful and responsible pet owners as well. There are poop bags around the fence and trash near the gates for easy clean ups. This is a good stop together to get yourself and your pet tired for the day!

Large park, divided for small and large (aggressive or non aggressive) dogs some shade and water for the dogs. Lots of room to run. Did not notice any mean dogs.
Great park!
Joanne in Phoenix
Today was our first visit to this park & we had lots of fun! There is TONS of space for the little guys to run and explore! A small dog park is also available.
Owners Beware!

I have a puppy and took her to the dog park. I have been to this dog park in the past and have had issues with aggressive owners! Avoid busy hours 6pm, etc.
Mean dogs and owners
Kimber in Phoenix
I went to this dog park today and I was very disappointed. There were mean dogs that kept barking and attacking my dog and the owners wouldn't do anything about it or even talk to me. I won't be going back here. I am very sad that this is happening at dog parks that are supposed to be fun for pet's and their owner's.

I have heard nothing but HORROR stories from this place of pitbulls and english terriers thatll eat your dog alive for a better place check out the metro sport complex 5 to 10 min drive north of the washington park one 23ave between dunlap and peoria
Bad owners
Otis in Phoenix
We used to go to this dog park, but stopped mainly because of the other dog owners. Yes there is lots of space for your dog to run around, but some dogs there can get aggressive and the owners do nothing. It is mainly the same people there every day and they treat it like a sewing circle caring more about having conversations than what their dog is doing. I have a 7 month old puppy and he has been attacked on several occasions there. I yell for their owner and they don't care they just laugh it off. I don't know about you, but I don't find my dog being attacked funny at all. Dog parks are for the dogs not for your social life. Yes it is perfectly fine to chat, but please keep a eye out for your dog.
