The Best Rated Dog Parks In Atlanta

WRITTEN BY Carter

1. Piedmont Dog Park

Piedmont Park is an urban park in Atlanta, Georgia, located about 1 mile northeast of Downtown, between the Midtown and Virginia Highland neighborhoods. No more than 3 dogs per person are permitted in the park. There is a specific area designated for small dogs under 30 pounds. No puppies under 16 weeks old are permitted in the off-leash portion of the park. The park also has benches available for owners to sit while their dogs play.

 

2. Woodruff Park

Woodruff Park, named after Robert W. Woodruff, is located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta, Georgia. The park’s 6 acres are north of Edgewood Ave, between Peachtree Street NE and Park Place NE. The park includes a fountain, a performance pavilion, and several monuments. Its location at the crossroads of commerce, government, and
education make it a natural gathering space for a diverse cross-section of Atlantans and visitors and a key starting point for exploring Downtown Atlanta and its surrounding neighborhoods. Woodruff Park was created through a generous donation from Robert W. Woodruff, former president of The Coca-Cola Company.

 

 

3. Renaissance Park Dog Park

Renaissance Park is a 5.4 acres park in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. The first off-leash facility to hit the community, Renaissance Dog Park, boasts two fully fenced play spaces. The larger play space is a designated off-leash zone for pooches that are larger in size or of a more exuberant nature. Renaissance Dog Park is well-stocked with everything your fave pooch could need for a day of fun. The Park also rests near both the Old Fourth Ward, Downtown Atlanta, and Midtown. For great views of Downtown and Midtown, you can’t beat Renaissance Dog Park!

 

 

4. Railside Dog Park at Castleberry Hill

The CHNA raised funds to start the only Downtown Atlanta off-leash dog park, thanks largely to the 2-acre parcel donation by landowner Jerry Miller. Recent additions, such as benches, are thanks to Besharat Gallery.
The park combines our creative talents — from the diversion of water from the roof of a nearby building (no future H2O bills) to wood chips donated by Georgia Power and provision for ornamental fencing as a gateway, designed by Castleberry Hill artists.

5. Freedom Barkway Dog Park

Housed on over two acres of property, this pawsome dog play haven offers two fenced enclosures, with one reserved for use by small dogs and the other for larger pupperonis to enjoy. Resting just one mile from downtown Atlanta, this doggone amazing dog playground offers you the opportunity for some dog park fun near shopping and restaurants. Off-leash play is permitted and encouraged at Freedom Barkway Dog Park, but you’ll still need to remember to bring a lead as Fido must remain leashed when traveling to and from your car to the designated off-leash zones.

 

 

6. Atlantic Station Dog Park

This small fenced park is probably a better fit for smaller dogs as there is not much room for larger dogs to really run. Benches and grassy areas are available, but be aware that there are no restrooms for humans. The plus side is, it is easily walkable to restaurants and eateries. This 30ft x 60ft, fenced dog park is best for small dogs and
features a water hose and benches.

 

 

7. South Bend Dog Park

The fenced-in dog area has plenty of space for your pup to run around in and shade to cool off on those hot Atlanta days. The ground has both grass and dirt, giving your dog’s paws different textures to run on. There are picnic tables for you to sit, but note, the park only allows bite-sized dog treats in the area. No human food is allowed. There are also water bowls to quench thirst, and abandoned toys are waiting to be played with. Grab a tennis ball, throw it as far as you can, and let Fido chase it. The park has a small dog and large dog section, so you don’t have to worry about Fido being intimidated by a dog three times his size. If dogs get into a squabble resulting in injury, report it to the Bureau of Parks immediately.

 

 

8. Freedom Barkway Dog Park

The Freedom Parkway Dog Park is not your ordinary city park. The Old Fourth Ward Freedom Barkway Corporation (OFWFBC) was born from the four Old Fourth Ward neighborhood associations’ needs and desires. The dog-owning residents of the Old Fourth Ward wanted to be able to walk their dogs to a place where the dogs could get proper exercise and play freely and safely with other dogs while not being on a leash. It was a fortuitous circumstance that there just happened to be a two-acre green space, located right in the intersection of all four neighborhood associations, in the heart of the Old Fourth Ward, owned by the Georgia Department of Transportation, who had taken, but not needed, this land for the Carter Presidential Library Road.

 

 

9. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport Dog Park

One of the most exclusive dog parks in America can be found in Atlanta, Georgia. It is not easy to get in. As a matter of fact, it is costly and requires a security check. Generally speaking, you have to plan your visit weeks in advance, and you have to come prepared with documentation to show that your dog is medically healthy before you can get anywhere near this dog park. Hartsfield-Jackson has long had relief areas for canine passengers. There is a small, windowless room on each concourse, with a concrete floor and tile walls. There is a water fountain on the floor for your dog and a sink and mirror for you.

 

 

10. ParkGrounds

Enjoy coffee, food, drinks, and WiFi at ParkGrounds Coffee. While you sip, your dog can enjoy some doggy playtime with other canines in the attached, fully fenced dog park. Just make sure your dog is friendly and well-socialized so that everyone enjoys their time. It’s a hip coffee shop with a fully fenced outdoor play yard for
canine customers. Order up a cup of coffee and a delicious pastry, then relax on one of the outdoor chairs as your pal mixes and mingles with new playmates. Pack a couple of clean-up bags, and be sure to pick up after your dog.

 

 

11. Fetch Park

At Fetch Park and Ice House, Atlanta’s first full-service dog park bar, a trip to the pet park can now be an excursion for both you and your canine companion. Serving food, cocktails, and coffee, and featuring plenty of open
space to run and play, it’s a “pawsome” destination for humans and their furry friends alike. A full-service restaurant, The Ice House, featuring human-only seating and a dog-friendly patio, is scheduled to be open late fall,
featuring what Ochs calls “high-end bar food with a Texas twist” be open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.

 

 

12. Canine Crossing Dog Park

The Canine Crossing is located in South Fulton County with 5+ acres for two fenced-in play areas – over and under 25 pounds Concrete tunnels, fire hydrants, and water fountains for dogs, two covered pavilions, a walking area, benches, covered swings, and restrooms. Canine Crossing is located between the South Fulton Government Service Center (5600 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park) and the South Fulton Tennis Center (5645 Mason Road, College Park). Parking is available at the South Fulton Government Service Center. Canine Crossing is a service of the South Fulton Special Services District.

 

 

13. Newtown Dog Park

There is the 1/2-acre big dog park area with a smaller run for dogs right by the basketball courts when you enter the park (on the left). There is also an unofficial dog park hidden back behind the historic school building. There you will find 5 acres of shaded hilly land for your dog to run wild. Bring your own water and bowl (and always some to share and spill) and poop bags. No human or pet food is allowed. Children under 12 must be supervised and use caution when in the dog park. No aggressive dogs are permitted.

 

14. Brook Run Dog Park

The Brook Run Dog Park is four acres, fully-wooded and fully-fenced. One loop around the park’s fence line is 1/3 of a mile. There are multiple seating areas throughout as well as water stations and poop stations. This is a public park, so it’s free. The dog park is open from sunrise until sunset—large parking lot adjacent. There is no separate section for small dogs yet, but four acres offers a lot of room to find a quiet spot. The park is maintained by a large, all-volunteer, non-profit organization that continually works to improve the facility, so please do your part to pick up after your dog.

 

 

15. Skyland Dog Park

A park in the Brookhaven Parks and Rec System features separate dog parks for big and small dogs, a paved walking
trail, and a sand volleyball court. The new state-of-the-art four-acre park boasts something for
everyone, ranging from children and dog lovers to those just seeking a quiet nature time. There are two separate areas to accommodate large and small dogs, a multi-use trail network, a nature education trail, a
multi-use open space field, a natural play zone, sand volleyball courts, a picnic shelter, and restroom facilities, a hammock area, and solar canopy recharging stations.
