Dog Parks

The eight Arlington County Dog Parks are open from sunrise until one half hour after sunset, unless otherwise designated.

All dogs in the County must be on a leash and under the control of their owner or of another responsible person. The only exception to this law is when the dog and its owner are at a county-sanctioned, off-leash dog park. Dogs are never allowed on athletic fields. Learn more about the Local Leash Laws and visit the Dog Park Rules and Regulations page before your next outing.

For additional resources visit Arlington Dogs and the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

An asterisk (*) following the name of a dog park indicates that the dog park is not fenced in or is only partially fenced in.
