Who let the dogs out? You did, at the Dog Run Park at Carlyle! This dog park is completely fenced in, so your pooch can play leash-free, and you won’t need to worry, or have a sense of anxiety, about Fido getting into trouble or going loose somewhere else. Dog Run Park has a separate area just for small dogs and puppies, as well as drinking water for all breeds.

Dog parks are fun, but if there was only a way not to lose your dog’s favorite toy every time you went to one…oh wait, there is! Beatley Library Dog Park doesn’t just have a wide-open area for dogs to run leash-free, but it also provides toys to play with there. Feel free to play with a ball, a Frisbee, or a tug-o-war rope, and then leave it in the park for the next time you visit. Not bringing your own toys means not losing the best ones!

Were you planning on going to the dog park today, but a huge storm rolled through last night, soaking everything and making the ground a big muddy mess? No one likes taking their dogs out to tromp in the mud puddles – especially if their dogs don’t like baths – but at Grist Mill Dog Park, those worries get washed away. Grist Mill is covered in a special blue landscaping dust that is made especially for reducing mud. No mud. No worries. All fun!
