Hayes is a community in Gloucester County, Virginia that around 15,000 people call home. Due to its proximity to the ocean and Virginia Beach, many people call Hayes home only temporarily, as it's a popular vacation destination. There are several shopping centers in Hayes which makes it one of the largest commercial centers in Gloucester County. Not only is Hayes a good spot to vacation and shop, it's also a nice place to be a dog owner! There isn't an off-leash dog park directly in Hayes, but there are nice parks for on-leash walks as well as off-leash parks in surrounding towns.
Woodville Park is a recreational hub in Hayes that's constantly changing and improving. This dog-friendly park welcomes dogs if they're on a leash, and Woodville Park also occasionally hosts Doggie Fun Days where owners and their dogs get together to socialize at the park. Woodville Park also has sports fields, nature trails, and gardens, and fundraising is also underway to add an all-inclusive playground to the park. This 100-acre park is also where several community events are hosted throughout the year, so there's always something going on. If an off-leash dog park is more your speed, there are several great dog parks just a short drive from Hayes!
