    #1 Byrd Park

    Next to the James River in Byrd Park is a nice, fenced dog park called Barker Field where you can let your pup off the leash to enjoy some time with other doggies. The place has a lot to offer, including benches, shade, poop baggies, different doggie toys, and plenty of canine company! You should know that the park has water available, but only in-season, so in the colder months, you should bring some with you. The only problem with this park is that it tends to get really crowded on the weekends. However, if your pup is a social butterfly, that might a plus rather than a problem!

It may be small, but this park is pawpular with the locals and welcomes lots of canine visitors, so if you're looking to socialize your dog, this is the perfect place! The park is very well-maintained, so bring waste bags to keep it that way. This grassy park also features picnic tables and benches for the pet parents.
