If your pup is looking to expand their social circle, bring them to the Aiken Dog Park! A joint project between the city of Aiken and the Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare (Aiken SPCA), this pawsome canine playground offers a safe environment for local and visiting doggos to romp unfettered. Not only is it a great place to make new doggie friends, but it's also the pawfect spot to get some off-leash exercise!
Located right next to the Albrecht Center, the Aiken Dog Park spans more than 2 acres and offers two grassy areas for canine visitors to use. One section is allocated for pups under 30 pounds, while the other is available to doggos of all sizes. There's plenty of room to run, play, and socialize in either section, so you can bet that even large pooches will be tuckered out after spending some time here! The big dog area also contains a wading pool for water-loving doggos to splash in.
Pavilions and benches provide spots for dog parents to sit, but don't get distracted by the chitchat and always keep an eye on your furry charge! Make sure they can see and hear you at all times. It is unknown if doggie waste bags are supplied, so remember to bring your own. Don't worry if you left Fido's water bottle at home, though; drinking fountains for canines and humans are available on-site.
The Aiken Dog Park is open to residents and non-residents, but all dogs must be fixed and be a member to use the facility, so drop by the Albrecht Center first to register your pup. Annual membership is $50 per dog for the first two dogs, then $25 per dog for each additional dog. Don't forget to bring proof of spay or neuter and proof of vaccinations.
A puptastic time awaits your furry pal at the Aiken Dog Park!
