    Great Park

    All the dogs seem to love it here! There is a water fountain for you and your pup, stainless steel bowls for you to use if desired, 3 large fenced in sections of grass, and plenty of seating. I only wish they would consider putting in some shade areas for owners and dogs for the hot summer heat.

    Fun and popular

    I'd highly recommend this park if your pup is a people (and doggo) pleaser. Except during bad weather, these fields are teeming with friendly pups. There are dog bowls, but no running water, so bring your own. This was our favorite dog park in Raleigh... enjoy!

    Big and grassy and fun!

    So different from the all-mulch places. This is a great place to hang out for humans as well as dogs. It’s huge, and it’s like it’s own park within a park. Bring lots of water since there isn’t an installed water dish, though there are old dishes around you can pour water into. No benches or shelters for humans, but temp bleachers or the ground make a nice place to sit.
