Dog Areas in Wendell

A town in Wake County, North Carolina, Wendell is known to locals and visitors for its small-town charm, in spite of the population not being all that small. It’s not as busy as the nearby city of Raleigh by any means; in fact, it can be something of a welcome reprieve from the bustling technology hub. It’s easy to see why people would flock to the area, especially dog lovers of all sorts. 

While Wendell itself doesn’t have many attractions of its own, its proximity to Raleigh and other big cities in North Carolina make it a must-see location for a doggy day trip. So whether you’re just visiting, or if you’re there long term, it’s always good to know the slices of doggy paradise in the area. One such location, smack dab in the middle of Raleigh, is Oakwood Dog Park. An expansive space which features an area for dogs of all sizes, as well a separate section for small or frail dogs, your pup is sure to fit in with the friendly faces in this park -- be they man or beast! Water is provided, though you will need to clean up any messes that your pup may make!

    If your pup is the adventurous sort, and you’re already in the Raleigh area, it’s worth making a stop in the neighborhood of Umstead.

    #2 Pineywood Townes

    To run off a bit of excess energy, there’s nothing better than a good game of frisbee catch. In Pineywood Townes, a neighborhood in Durham, there’s a dog park with a whole section dedicated just to frisbee catch! At Piney Wood Dog Park, your dog will have plenty of space to romp and play. If you’re not feeling the interactive aspects of frisbee tossing, allow your dog in one of the other two fenced areas -- one is for large dogs, and the other is for small, frail, or elderly pups. There are plenty of places to sit, and water is provided.

    #3 Ramblewood

    If your pup is nervous about getting off their leash, or if their voice command isn’t so great, never fear! Make your way to Ramblewood, a beautiful neighborhood in Apex.

Your pup pal will need to remain on their leash at all times, but that won’t stop you from having a good time! Just be sure to bring some clean drinking water and waste bags. Trash cans are evenly dispersed through the park, so disposal won’t be a problem.
