    Our dog loves it!

    This is our dog’s favorite place to go. we usually just get a day pass and you can walk around with your dog. Your dog can be off leash and play with the many other dogs that go there. If your dog doesn’t like playing, then you can walk around the grounds knowing your dog is secure in a large fenced in area. There are water pumps and dog bowls every so often so your pup can get some water.

    My favorite place

    Great place for a dog to roam and run around. Lots of other dogs to chase and wrestle with. Make sure to check hours, they restrict dogs on Mondays and Saturdays until 3pm. This is Dalton's happy place

    Dogs must be altered

    Proof of spay/neuter status is required, even to get a day pass. Absolutely no exceptions are made to this policy. As a responsible owner of a performance dog, this is disappointing.

    Off leash fun

    Don't miss the Congressional Cemetary with your dog. Yes, dogs are welcome for $10 daily admission and it is worth every penny. Walk the historic grounds and let your dog have great fun with neighorborhood dogs.
