In the City of New Orleans, space for your canine to run and play can be limited and infrequent. This makes for an oasis in the proverbial desert. The Wisner Dog Park is a co-mingled dog park. There are no separate enclosures for large and small canines. This can put small dogs at a higher risk as they play with canines of all sizes.
The Wisner Dog Park gets a lot of use, and the grass has turned to dirt and sand for the majority of the dog park. Your canine is likely to get quite dirty at this park as they run and play. The Wisner Dog Park has a lot of space for a major city dog park.
You won't find many other places like this across New Orleans where your canine can spread their legs in this dense of a metropolitan area. This dog park does not require a membership, or any registration with the city makes it convenient for those visiting New Orleans with their canines and need some space for their canine to stretch their legs.
Poop bags are available here for your convenience, garbage cans are emptied regularly, and the park maintains the property well. There are some large trees that provide a decent amount of shade for the patrons of the Wisner Dog Park. This is great news during those hot, sunny Louisiana days.
The ground can get quite muddy during and after heavy rainfall, but you can always wash your canine off on your way out of the park. If you are a resident of the nearby area or visiting New Orleans with your canine, there are few options for canines to be able to run and play.
