In the middle of a quaint neighborhood is the Dune Street Off-Leash Dog Area located in Norfolk, VA. The small park is between Dune Street and Meadowbrook Lane surrounded by homes. It is a mostly flat area with tons of green grass to play in. The trees are plentiful and luscious, providing the right amount of shade.
The Dune Street Off-Leash Dog Area is a no-frills park, meaning it may not have the bells and whistles, but it makes for a relaxing atmosphere after a walk or to hang out. There are no bathrooms, picnic tables, or even benches here; however, it does have a tire swing.
If your Fido gravitates towards water or mud, keep him on a leash until he knows not to venture over to a small, winding trench that flows rainwater into the sewage drain. We wouldn’t want Fido to get too dirty. Hang out here by reading a book while the pup lays next to you.
It is even an excellent area for a small doggo get-together. The park faces Dune Street, and it's not frequented except for occasional cars. Be on the lookout for speeders since it is a fairly main road for the neighborhood. Do keep your dog on a leash since this park is completely open without a fence.
Being leashed is especially important if your dog is a runner or easily distracted. The park is not typically busy, so it’s an excellent introduction for pups who haven’t been acquainted with being around other dogs yet. Dune Street doesn’t have any official rules, so it’s suggested that you follow the dog park rules of Norfolk.
The rules state that you shouldn’t leave your dog unattended, must have rabies vaccinations and a license, and owners must be responsible for the actions of their dog. The Dune Street Off-Leash Dog Area is quiet and quaint making it a perfect relaxation area for dogs of all ages and sizes.
