For a pawsitively beautiful off-leash experience, visit Manassas’ Balls Ford Road/ Cushing Road neighborhood! About seven miles from Nokesville, this area is home to the Merrifield Garden Centre Dog Park, a unique and pawsome off-leash area located at a garden store! This garden center takes the phrase “dog friendly” to a whole new level, as dogs aren’t just allowed in the store, they even have their own dog park! Fido can romp, play and socialize in this fully enclosed area that features kiddie pools for hot days, Frisbees and tennis balls. There is a doggie waste cleanup station, community water bowls, plus benches for humans. After your dog has burned off some energy, head inside the store to see the impressive assortment of plants and flowers!
