In recognition of National Dog Day, August 26, 2017, we’ve compiled a list of resources dedicated to man’s best friend.
Nando’s Dog Park – Dublin dogs have a park all to themselves in Darree Fields. Named after the City’s first Police Canine Unit, Nando’s Dog Park has small and large play areas for dogs to run, play and roam off-leash. Be sure to read the park rules before heading.
In A Park, On A Leash – Remember to grab the leash before heading out for a walk. City ordinance states that dogs must be on a leash in all parks except Nando’s. Keep your dog and others safe by using a leash.
Pooch Pond – Every year the Dublin Community Recreation Center hosts a pool party just for dogs at Community Pool South. This year it takes place Wednesday, September 6. Small dogs under 50 pounds can swim from 5:30-6:30 p.m.; dogs over 50 pounds can swim from 6:45-7:45 p.m. Bring a donation for the Capital Area Humane Society for free admission.
Glacier Ridge Metro Park – located just west of Dublin, Glacier Ridge Metro Park has two paved trails dogs are permitted to walk on, on a leash. And the park could be getting more dog-friendly. There are ongoing efforts between the City of Dublin and Metro Parks to introduce new dog amenities, taking advantage of the wide open spaces and wooded areas of the park. More info to come.
