Dog Park Study

News posted May 10, 2018 - 10:55 am

The 2018 Dog Park Study is a comprehensive approach to address the need for dog parks throughout the City of Raleigh.

Based on citizen feedback, spatial data analysis, and a review of nationwide trends in dog park planning, we will develop a strategy to create safe and engaging park spaces for people with (and without) dogs.
This study will include 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. Please visit our website for more information, news about upcoming events, and to take our survey.
