There is also a large dog run and a "common area" where dogs of all sizes are welcome to socialize and engage in off-leash activity. To keep each dog in the play areas safe, owners are required to provide active supervision and to keep a lead handy in case it is needed. Dogs must be leashed when entering and exiting the enclosures as well as in all public spaces.
Aiken Dog Park is a private dog playground. A membership is required to enter the facility. There are various price structures listed, and it is unknown what the cost of a yearly membership is at this time. One source cites that it is $25 per year and another $40. Daily passes are available at a cost of $10 per day per dog.
Each membership fee must be accompanied by proof of a city dog license (dog tags are not sufficient), documentation showing a spay or neuter surgery, and an up to date rabies vaccination. In addition to this, each dog's microchip number must be furnished at the time of application.
Aiken Dog Park is home to many great amenities for dogs and their owners to enjoy. Among the things included in the dog runs are a wading pool, drinking water, dog wash stations, agility equipment, walking trails, and a concession stand. There are also benches situated throughout well-shaded areas where owners can recline and enjoy watching their dogs having fun.
Many of these amendments were reported to have been instituted during a park renovation in 2012. The park is accessed through an electronic gate passcode which is provided to owners upon approval of their membership application. It is unknown if poop bags are available on the premises so you should bring some from home to assist with the proper cleanup.
