This fully fenced-in 2-acre pup playground is securely gated on several sides, and features a large area for dogs of all sizes to mix and mingle. Canines can chase each other in the open center, or dart through the trees sniffing out adventure. With just one large space, little pups should be comfortable running with the big dogs to play here. The hilly terrain is covered in woodchips that are easy on the paws, and the park offers pools in the summer to let dogs get a splash in. Water hoses are also on site, as are drinking fountains to keep everyone hydrated. In the colder months, the water is shut off, so you'll need to bring your own water.
Picnic tables are scattered throughout, giving you ample space for relaxing and meeting other owners as you watch your dogs play. Be sure to bring your own clean-up bags to pick up after your pup. Trash cans are provided to make disposal easy!
Before you take your four-legged friend to the park, make sure they are wearing their collar with up-to-date ID and rabies tags, and are fully vaccinated. Your dog must remain on leash, which can be no longer than six feet, when entering and exiting the dog run, and anywhere outside of it. Access is easy with four double-gated entrances, two on Vine Street and two on Columbia Heights. Handicap accessible entrances are on Vine Street. The park is usually busiest around mid-day.
Treat your pawtastic pal to a day of excitement at the Hillside Dog Park!
