What Are The Best Dog Parks In Nashville? A Pet Dentist’s Perspective

There are several dog parks in Nashville where you and your furry friend could enjoy some outdoor fun. Keep in mind that the popularity of parks can change over time, so I recommend checking recent reviews or local resources for the most up-to-date information. Here are some dog parks in Nashville that were well-regarded:

  • Centennial Dog Park: Located in Centennial Park, this dog park offers separate areas for small and large dogs. It’s a spacious and well-maintained area for dogs to play off-leash.   The address is: 2500 W End Ave, Nashville, TN 37232.   Personally speaking, my son lives in the Germantown area and I see a lot of young professionals walking their pets here and it’s an awesome environment.
  • Shelby Dog Park: Situated within Shelby Park, this dog park is known for its large fenced-in areas for both small and large dogs. It also has plenty of shade and benches for dog owners. 401 S 20th St, Nashville, Tn 37206
  • Two Rivers Dog Park: This park provides separate spaces for small and large dogs, agility equipment, and water stations. It’s a popular spot for local dog owners to let their pets socialize and play.  3150 Mcgavock Pike, Nashville, TN 37214
  • Warner Dog Park: Located in Edwin Warner Park, this dog park offers wooded trails, open fields, and a creek where dogs can cool off. There are separate areas for small and large dogs.  When I was a child, we spent so much time walking the trails at Edwin Warner.  It’s a great workout as it’s hilly and dogs love it.   50 Vaughn Rd, Nashville, TN 37221
  • Percy Priest Dog Park: Situated near Percy Priest Lake, this dog park provides ample space for dogs to roam, as well as access to the lake for swimming. The park has separate sections for small and large dogs. 3778 Bell Rd, Nashville, Tn 37214
  • William A. Pitts Dog Park: This dog park is part of Richland Park and has separate areas for small and large dogs. It’s known for its clean and well-maintained facilities. 299 Tusculum Rd, Antioch, TN 37013

Remember to always follow the park’s rules and regulations, clean up after your dog, and ensure that your dog is up-to-date on vaccinations and is well-socialized before visiting a dog park. It’s also a good idea to bring water, waste bags, and any other necessary supplies for your dog’s comfort.  Also, remember to leave all valuables locked in your trunk and not visible to anyone.  No one wants a broken window and stolen items.

To get the most current and accurate information about the best dog parks in Nashville, I recommend checking online reviews, local pet forums, or contacting local authorities responsible for park maintenance and management.

Have fun!
