The new dog park at Dix Park is opening on April 9th, 2022, replacing the temporary dog park, which closed April 18th.
The new dog park is at 1800 Umstead Drive, Raleigh. The large grass-covered dog park has separate areas for small and large dogs. When you visit during the week, parking is available on the gravel lot only. Evenings and weekend parking is available in all lots.
