The Dog Park Study was approved by City Council on January 22, 2019.
Thank you for being part of the 2018 Raleigh Dog Park Study!
We met over 4,000 people (and their pups!) at our dog park events throughout the summer.
1,500 of you shared your ideas & opinions in our community survey.
Now we have incorporated your ideas into a long-range plan that will guide the development of dog parks in Raleigh for years to come.
People like you are what make Raleigh such an awesome place!
Join us for our 2019 Pups in the Park series!
Join us on Saturday, Feb. 23 for outdoor activities, a scavenger hunt, and a pop-up dog park! Come play games on the lawn, take a stroll around the park and enjoy a family picnic as you give your input to help influence the future of Baileywick Park. The event is free and a food truck will be on site.
This event is the first in a series of three public workshops to gather input and formulate a design for the park.

About the Dog Park Study
Based on citizen feedback, spatial data analysis, and a review of nationwide trends in dog park planning, the City of Raleigh developed a strategy to create safe and engaging park spaces for people with (and without) dogs.
This study includes analysis of the geographic distribution of dog parks throughout the city, opportunities & access in urban as well as suburban areas, & potential tools to encourage publicly accessible dog runs as part of new development.
We will also be launching a pilot program of pop-up dog parks, to test the idea of providing temporary off-leash areas to meet dog park needs where space for permanent dog parks is not available.
Share your thoughts & ideas above!
