Pitner Dog Park
Pitner Dog Park, opened in 2010, features two adjoining but separately fenced off-leash play areas. Totaling 3 acres, this park is divided into a 2-acre enclosure for large dogs and a 1-acre section for smaller ones. People here are very sociable and respectful of each other. Visitors love this spot because owners tend to be more laid back compared to other locations. Here, both pups and pet parents are happy! It’s pretty typical to make new friends with other owners while hanging out at the shaded benches. The off-leash pens also have a tree-covered area that’s perfect for the pups to escape the Georgia heat during the summer. As a bonus, the park features a training place where you can let your dogs run through a mini obstacle course. After a day of play, there’s a hiking trail where you can relax with your pooches. This park at 2450 Pitner Rd. is a must-visit!

Owners help by being responsible and picking up after their babies. Dog bags and disposal bins are also available around. There’s a substantial amount of ground to cover making it a great place to play fetch! If you want to meet new friends, add this park at 475 Campbell Hill St NW to your list.
