Your Guide to Local Dog Parks

Local dog parks Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Indiana Dayton Springfield

Your pooch loves to socialize with other dogs. What better place to meet fellow canines than at a dog park? Whether playing fetch or letting your dog explore and meet other furry friends, a dog park is a great way to give your pet some exercise. The popularity of these type of parks has increased since the first dog park was established in 1979 in Berkley, California, and their numbers have grown steadily in the last several years. (91% of Americans believe dog parks provide benefits to their communities.)

We found quite a few local dog parks for you and your dog to explore. Many of them provide benches for owners, water, as well as separate areas for small and large breeds. Most of the dog parks are free, but there are a few private parks with a membership fee. A few public parks require registration and/or have a park fee.

Dog parks are listed by region and then alphabetic.
