Central Brambleton's canine residents are very furtunate to have a spot allocated just for them. Nestled among residential houses, the Brambleton Dog Park is a green space in the middle of the neighborhood that has gone to the dogs, literally! Here, four-legged citizens are more than welcome to stretch their legs and get some much-needed exercise after spending most of the day indoors.
Located less than a mile from Norfolk State University, the Brambleton Dog Park is one of ruffly 15 public dog parks scattered around the city. But don't let your pooch run loose just yet—since this is an unfenced area, Fido's leash needs to stay on at all times. All doggos, including those with excellent recall, are required to be leashed for their own safety.
Brambleton is a basic, no-frills site, so don't expect to find amenities such as benches or drinking fountains here. It does, however, have a spacious lawn that is pawfect for walkies, as well as lots of trees to keep your pupper's nose busy. The trees also create several shady spots where you and your pooch can sit and enjoy a packed lunch on the grass. Remember to bring enough water for yourself and your best friend—even though most of the park is nicely shaded, staying hydrated is still impawtant.
Pup parents are expected to help keep the area clean by picking up whatever their furry charge puts down. In case you forgot to bring doggie waste bags, there is a dispenser available at the front. A couple of items that shouldn't be left at home, however, are Fido's rabies and city license tags, which all puppers using the dog park must wear.
For daily exercise in Central Brambleton, bring your pooch to the Brambleton Dog Park!
