Top Ten Dog Parks in the USA

  Dog Parks - The Top 10 in the United States


1. Point Isabel Dog Park
2701 Isabel St.
Richmond, California
Point Isabel is home to the United States' largest public off-leash dog park. A favorite with park visitors is Mudpuppy's Tub & Scrub, a dog washing and dog-specific retail shop facility. There are full service and do-it-yourself dog baths, plus great toys, treats, and supplies. The Sit & Stay Cafe is located next door to Mudpuppy's and features treats for your dog's best friend, including Gourmet espresso drinks, coffee, pastries, sandwiches, smoothies, soups, cookies, ice cream, and their famous Road House Chili.

2. Cosmo Dog Park

Gilbert, Ariz.
Dog Park Amenities include: Approximately 4 fenced acres, Area lighting for night use, Pet drinking fountains & wash stations, Separate use areas for active and timid dogs, Ramada, tables and benches, Trash receptacles and "Mutt-Mitt" waste disposal stations.

3. Friends Forever Dog Park
966 Rudy Road
Freeport, Ill.
A nine-acre dog park complete with a pool to romp in during long, hot summers. At the Friends Forever Dog Park, located in northern Illinois, a fenced area filled with agility equipment coaxes the inner athletes out of dogs. The equipment, which is also used by park operator Friends Forever Humane Society for training and exercising homeless dogs, includes an A-frame, dog walk, weave poles, and jumps.

4. Millie Bush Bark Park
16756 Westheimer Pkwy.
Houston Texas
Thirteen acres. Double gated & fenced, pick up bags, large and small dog areas (with large and small fire hydrants in them!) -doggie swimming ponds, water fountains, doggie showers, shade areas, benches, scattered trees, walking path, parking lot. Picnic benches outside park. Restrooms close by but not in the dog park. Open 7 days a week dawn to dusk.

5. Tompkins Square Dog Run
New York, New York
The city's first dog run was opened in 1990 as part of the renovation of Tompkins Square park. As ex-parks commissioner Henry Stern stated, "starting the run was just a good idea". The Parks Department included one caveat: the run must be managed and funded by the community (not the city.) Dog owners who fought so hard to make First Run a reality, raised money and organized volunteers. Today even those who have no love for dogs say that First Run was instrumental in bringing the park back to its glory days. First Run is a source of immense pride and devotion for countless people.

6. Warren G. Magnuson Dog Park
7400 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, Wash.
The Magnuson dog off-leash area is located in the center of the park. Created in 1999, it has been continuously improved. It now has a "small and shy area", beach access, and nine acres for running and playing. Located along the shores of Lake Washington, dogs can romp in the water or meander down a picturesque trail that snakes through the nine-acre park. But this isnít just any trail. The wide, winding footpath is composed of compact gravel to keep down mud, and level enough to be wheelchair-accessible.

7. Indianapolis Humane Society Pet & People Park
7929 N. Michigan Rd.
Indianapolis, Indiana
Central Indiana's first pet park is on the campus of the Humane Society of Indianapolis. The park allows a place for owners to exercise and enjoy their pets in a safe, fenced area. There is a canine agility course that is a highlight of the park, picnic tables for family enjoyment and approximately 1.5 miles of wooded trails.

8. Rocky Top Dog Park
4106 State Hwy. 27
Princeton, New Jersey
Rocky Top is situated on a 5.75-acre tract of natural woodlands. The fenced-in areas occupy about 3 acres, with about 2 of these devoted to the "main" park and its shaded, woodchip-paved walking paths and man-made swimming pond. The rest of the park is divided into 3 smaller fenced areas used primarily for small-dog and puppy play, special events, and by member dogs who prefer to play on grass. The entire area is treated for ticks on a regular basis. The swimming pond, supplied by city water, is elevated to eliminate runoff and is also drained and cleaned regularly.

9. Shaggy Pines Dog Park
3895 Cherry Lane Ave. S.E.
