Memphis’ first dog park, located near the Shelby County Schools central offices on Avery, opened in 2010. Hours of operation for the park are 6 a.m.—8 p.m. from March 15—Oct. 31 and 6 a.m.—6 p.m. from Nov. 15 to March 14.
The “off leash” fenced in park has designated space for dogs under 25 pounds and more than 25 pounds. Biodegradable doggie waste bags are provided so that owners can help keep the park clean and free of pet waste. The park has benches for owners to relax and watch the dogs play. So that dogs have a safe and fun environment in which to play, all dogs must be licensed and vaccinated/immunized and each dog owner is responsible for the behavior and action of their dog.
