New Albany Dog Park

 

New Albany Dog Park

An off-leash paradise for our four-legged members of the family

Operated by the City of New Albany Parks Department - Opening Fall 2016

After many years of planning, the New Albany Dog Park is very close to completion, and is scheduled to open this Fall. Located along Highway 111 at 1935 Budd Road in New Albany, this off-leash dog park features multiple acres of open land for your pooch to run and play.  The park also features swings, gazebos, benches, water fountains, wooded areas, a separate handler training area, and much more. The park has two large play areas, with dogs separated by weight, so that smaller dogs can have a less intimidating space to run and play in with their friends.

We know that urban living can be stressful for our canine friends at times, and that's why we are excited to have this wonderful, open green space to give your pooch some freedom to stretch those little legs. Did you know that many behavioral problems experienced by dogs are due to a lack of socialization, physical activity, and exercise? By bringing your furry friend down to the New Albany Dog Park, he or she can freely run off-leash, fetch toys, bark with their new buddies, or go for a swim in the water. Even man's best friend needs a little "me" time every once in awhile.
