Dog Parks in the Triangle

After living in Raleigh for a while I have come to realize that there are a lot of people here who have dogs.  There are several dog parks located across the Triangle where pet owners can let their dogs run free safely and legally without a leash. 

Most of the locations offer separate play areas for big dogs and little dogs. Check out each town’s dog park website for specific details. Below is a quick list the current dog parks located in the area.
