Please provide your feedback on the 5 Key Issues below.
These questions cover some of the most important topics of the Dog Park Study, and we need more community feedback before coming to a conclusion on these issues!
We will use your responses to help shape the final recommendations, which will be presented to City Council later this year.
Volunteer groups and private donations (no matter how small!) are crucial to Raleigh’s ability to maintain well-functioning dog parks. We rely on volunteers to help enforce rules, report incidents, stock bag dispensers, maintain & spread mulch, and take on many other essential tasks that keep our dog parks clean and safe. In some cases, a dedicated group (such as the Friends of Millbrook Dog Park) has formally organized and entered into an Adopt-a-Park agreement with the City of Raleigh. Alternatively, sponsorships are a great way for a business or organization to give back to the community and build social capital.

2018 Raleigh Dog Park Study
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.
