The Norman Community Dog Park is a public dog park located in the Griffin Community Park in Norman, Oklahoma. In addition to the dog run, the community park is home to a disc golf course, playgrounds, lakes, picnic areas, public restrooms (operating between April and October) and walking trails.
The two-acre Norman Community Dog Park was opened in 2005 and has since become a popular place for the dog owners in the community. The dog park can be found on the north end of the community park, next to the disc golf course and between two lakes. It is directly located by the parking lots of the Sutton Wilderness trail.
It has a well-thought-out, open space layout that is divided into two separate areas for dogs to socialize, play, and run around in. One area is meant for small dog breeds while the other accommodates the bigger hounds and is equipped with some agility obstacles. The areas are fairly sized and provide plenty of space for off-leash exercise and canine fun.
The Norman Community Dog Park is fully fenced and well-equipped with everything you would need in a dog park. There are plenty of trash cans and free waste bag dispensers to encourage owners to clean up after their pets and help keep maintain this park poop-free.
There are also water fountains but they only operate between April and September so make sure to bring your own water during the winter time to keep your pooch hydrated. Finding seating is never a problem since there are lots of benches spread across the park.
There are 10,000 feet of paved walking trails that run through the park, as well as a small pond nearby the dog area which owners are welcome to take their dogs to, as long as he is leashed. The park’s regular patrons are said to be very welcoming and helpful so make sure to stop by this wonderful park and get to know the community!
