Dog Parks

A visit to one of our off-leash dog parks is a special treat for everyone, not just your pups. With acres to run and play, taking your best friends along for fresh air and exercise is good for you and as easy as a walk in the park!

Dog Park Locations
Each dog park features large and small dog sections, and the dog park at James Island County Park has a large lake in which your dog can swim and play.

Dog Park Rules
The success of the dog parks will largely depend on the self-monitoring and cooperation of dog owners. Please help keep it healthy and hospitable by encouraging others through your good example. Please note that we do not allow dogs that are sick, aggressive, in-heat, without current vaccination displayed, or too young for rabies vaccinations.

Rules
  1. YOU are completely responsible for all injuries and damage caused by your dog.
  2. Pick up the poop! If your dog poops, you must immediately remove the excrement.
  3. Leash your dog until it is safely inside, and return it to leash upon exiting.
  4. Always keep an eye on your dog, and keep voice control to prevent any trouble.
  5. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
  6. Leash your dog whenever you sense problems.
  7. Do not let dogs dig holes. If they do, fill them in immediately.
  8. Keep food out of the enclosures. Dogs may become overly protective or aggressive in the presence of food.
  9. Access to the dog park may be restricted during special events. If so, notice will be posted.
  10. Immediately report any bite or attack to the Park Office.
Petiquette
In an effort to make your trip to the dog park more enjoyable, we have developed the concept of Petiquette, behavior-based guidelines - or “pet etiquettes” - for furry, four-legged visitors and their 2-legged companions. Read on to learn more...
