The Clemson Dog Park is a public dog park located at the Nettles Park in Clemson, South Carolina. In addition to the dog park, the spacious Nettles Park features softball and baseball fields, soccer fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, public restrooms and several picnic shelters. The dog park is located by the soccer and baseball fields at the back of the park.
This wonderful dog park was opened in October 2009 and until this day is a popular destination in the area for canine fun and off-leash exercise. The dog park is one acre in size and features a large dog run and a separate small dog area for canines under 30 pounds. The small dog area also accommodates timid or senior dogs. Both of the leash-free sections share a small creek that dogs can drink from, splash around in or cool off by.
Since there is water access and the park’s surface consists of grass and mulch, playtime can get muddy fast. Make sure to pack a towel for your pooch to avoid a messy car on the ride back home. There are tons of trees growing throughout the park so finding a shaded spot to relax in is not a problem. The dog park is also equipped with a water fountain that can be found in the large dog section, though it is only available during the summer months.
Dog waste bag dispensers are also available and help keep this beautiful park clean and well-maintained. Although there are a few benches at the dog park, the park’s popularity can make it difficult to find seating, especially during the weekends. In addition to the above, there is a scenic walking trail with a small bridge crossing over a river. It is the perfect place for a leashed walk with your canine companion before or after you visit the dog park.
