The Fairbanks Dog Park is located in the South Davis Park Complex, at 2000 Davis Road, Fairbanks, Alaska, just near the soccer fields. It is south of Wilbur Street and Davis Road and it spans across a 20-acre parcel, providing the local community with a unique mix of recreational activities such as soccer, softball, and exercising dog trails. You can check out their official website or visit their Facebook page for more info.
Canine enthusiasts can visit the park all year round, from Monday to Sunday on a 24-hour basis, with a small exception during the winter months, when the park opens from 2 pm until 10 pm. There are currently no permanent restroom facilities at the location, although port-a-potties are provided during summer. Owners should be aware that puppies under four months old are prohibited from the area, the same as aggressive and unattended dogs. The public park includes half a mile of walking trails and off-leash fencing sector, as well as a fenced lawn for training and events.
Fairbanks Dog Park features recreational areas such as athletic fields, a basketball court (which users often use as an off-leash dog area), a parking lot, a picnic shelter, and community gardens. It provides dogs and their owners with two exercise and training pens, in what is popularly known as a “canine paradise." Visitors can take advantage of the park’s pond for water-dog training or enjoy the wooden trails and open space even without their furry companions.
While visiting the park, owners are advised to clean up after their pets and carry a leash at all times. Also, it’s recommended that all dogs are spayed and vaccinated before taken to the property. Fairbanks Dog Park is a place where responsible pet ownership is encouraged and where you can exercise and socialize your dog off-leash 24/7. It’s also an ideal location for people of all ages, regardless of their physical abilities.
