Easily found past the soccer fields across the Health Center, the University of Georgia has an off-leash area especially just for canines of all sizes. The designated zone of this lovely Athens public park has loads to offer visitors, both those of the four-legged and the two-legged kind. Your canine will have nothing but love for the open space that is here at UGA Intermural Fields Off-Leash Area for them to explore.
The doggie area is not fully-fenced off from the non-dog area, so it is the responsibility of pet parents to ensure their pooch does not cross over other regions, especially if your dog is not on their leash. The training track is just next to the space for pooches, so the safety of canines and people is a critical consideration. You can take Spike with you on the trails, but he has to be on a leash for everyone’s protection.
The UGA Intermural Fields Off-Leash Area is in the middle of the greater trail or park so there are numerous pockets of fields where you and your dog can go to if Spike gets tired from all the running and the rolling around. You can stop in one of the fields and play catch or throw frisbees. There is ample shade to protect everyone from the hot sun. There is no drinking water available, so it is essential to bring your full water jug to avoid the risks of dehydration.
Dog poop bags are also not available at the UGA Intermural Fields Off-Leash Area so remember to bring some so that you can clean up after your dog. Nobody wants to play in a field where there is dog poop everywhere. Aside from the area for canines, there are also other facilities such as badminton fields, soccer fields, jogging and walking trails, a badminton court and a basketball court to name a few.
