Fort Thomas Dog Park is a specially designated area of the Highland Hills Park, in the city of Fort Thomas, Kentucky. There are ample spaces for vehicle parking in the park's main lot.
The Fort Thomas Dog Park is an off-leash zone just for dogs which is enclosed with a double installation of chain-link fencing. It's a very natural environment with more than adequate acreage for big breeds to have a good run around. The surface is a combination of grass, dirt and bark chippings.
One part of the dog park has a steep incline which is wooded with mature trees and bushes. It may be difficult for some pet owners, mature dogs, or pets with mobility problems to get around in that part of the dog park. It is shady in sunny weather but can be muddy and slippery after rain.
The Fort Thomas Dog Park rules and regulations do not permit access to the Pit Bull breed or pups under four months of age. Only dogs which have been spayed or neutered are allowed in the off-leash area. Dogs are allowed along the trails and throughout the main park, but must be leashed at all times until inside the allotted off-leash area. They must also be securely leashed before exiting the off-leash area. There is a section cordoned off from the main off-leash area for small dogs.
Bench seating has been provided inside the off-leash zone and there are several specific picnic areas with the Highland Hills Park itself. Restrooms are also available in the main park. Water fountains have not been installed in the off-leash area.
There is a supply of fresh water for dogs. It's provided by the strategic placing of bottled water and drinking bowls, but this can run out so carry an extra supply especially in hot weather. Pet owners are expected to provide their own poop bags, deposit them in the receptacle provided and assist in keeping the park clean for other users.
