    Great Park! Needs Drainage

    We’ve taken our dog here several times and she loves it! Owners are very friendly and pup has met a lot of playmates. Separate areas for large and small dogs ( /- 25 lbs), and plenty of space to run out those zoomies! However, beware of muddy puddle in the lowest part (back corner) where runoff, mud and presumably waste all collect - we think this was responsible for several weeks of gastrointestinal distress after symptoms showed two days after our doodle got into it. No response from town Parks

    Southern Dog Park

    This dog park is phenomenal! I have been taking my dog here since he was a puppy and we love it. The people of Chapel Hill are friendly, respectful, and very attentive of their dogs. If your dog likes traffic and lots of attention, the best times to go are after 5PM during the week and around lunch time on the weekends. Lunch time during the week is very dull with ~5 dogs at a time. If you are looking for more 1-on-1 with your dog then there is also a nature trail and disc golf course in the surrounding park. There is also a picnic shelter, playground, and human bathrooms. Overall, you couldn't ask for a better park!

    Great place

    I love taking my dogs to this place. The entire area is fenced in, which is approximately 3 acres, and offers water and poop bags. All of this is free. Most of the people and dogs who come here are friendly and the dogs are kept under control.
