Looking over the water at a great dog park


This 1-acre dog park features a large expanse of lawn, double-gated entrance, a water station, a toy bin, a shaded picnic area, and an easy-access ramp for dog-paddling in the Elizabeth River. In a beautiful picturesque location by the water, it is conveniently close to downtown Norfolk, and right near the Cruise lines port. It is open 24/7 and free of charge!

    beautiful park!!

    The large park was closed for maintenance when we were there, but looked like it would be a ball. Ramp for doggies to get in and out of the water, plenty of dog bags and places to dispose of them.

    Our 90lb. 10 yr old retriever mix had a great time as the only visitor in the small park though. Kiddie pool and fresh water source there.

    PETA Dog Park

    This is a nice facility but it is PETA run and next door to PETA. There are also PETA promotions there. If you have an an issue with their pet euthanasia propensity be aware that you may be solicited for donations while there.

    Interesting park with sea walls and fences. You could not keep your dog our if he likes the water! Gorgeous harbor view, covered area with picnic tables, deck with ramp right down to harbor. Ghent neighborhood is full of upscale, dog friendly restaurants and shops for strolling. All size dogs together. Baby pool. Small wooded area. Benches.

    best dog park I've found

    Big grassy area, access to the water, ramp to get out, small kiddie pool, this park has it all

    It's obviously a well taken care of park, as it's done by PETA HQ. Great size and two separate parks for small and big dogs. Water access if your dog likes to swim!
