Off Leash Dog Park Areas
Dogs bring people fun, loyalty, and companionship.
Our dog parks are areas where you can take your dogs and let them off leash, while remaining in compliance with Raleigh city ordinances.
Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources encourages you and your dog to come out and enjoy the park facilities located throughout Raleigh. Each park is managed by volunteers and depends on responsible dog ownership and etiquette.
