Knoxville and Knox County have made a commitment with PetSafe Village to make Knoxville the "Most Pet Friendly Community" in the country.
PetSafe Village has donated money to go towards the construction of five dog parks in the Greater Knoxville area. Additionally, efforts are being made to work with downtown restaurants to allow dogs in their outdoor dining areas.
Knoxville Parks and Recreation offers more than 45 miles of greenways and more than 80 parks for patrons to enjoy with their canine companions.
Per City ordinance, all dogs must be on a leash at all times (except in off-leash dog parks) and dog owners are required to pick up their dog's waste.
Charter Doyle PetSafe Dog Park 5100 West Martin Mill Pike South Knoxville
Open since November 2011, the beautiful two-acre Charter Doyle PetSafe Dog Park is situated within Charter Doyle Park in South Knoxville. Well-shaded by fully mature cedar trees, the dog park features separate sections for large and small dogs, a dog water fountain, and dog waste stations. Charter Doyle Greenway, which is a 0.4-mile loop encircling Charter Doyle Park, also connects to the dog park.
Dogwood Park 4901 Bradshaw Rd. North Knoxville
Located in Victor Ashe Park, Dogwood Park was opened in 2007 as Knoxville's first public dog park. The one-acre off-leash area is completely fenced and features a puppy playground (includes two hill structures, a puppy jump, and a tunnel), a dog water fountain, and dog waste stations. Knoxville Parks and Recreation built this park in cooperation with the Knox Dog Owners Group (KnoxDog). Dog Fancy Magazine recently named Dogwood Park as the country's Dog Park with the Best Setting.
PetSafe Downtown Dog Park 200 S Central St. Downtown Knoxville
The PetSafe Downtown Dog Park is the second of five parks to be built with funding from PetSafe Village. The dog park is located at the corner of Summit Hill Drive and Central Avenue in the downtown area. Approximately one acre, the park opened to the public in June 2010. The PetSafe Downtown Dog Park features an attractive entrance that complements the surrounding downtown buildings. The State of Tennessee has awarded Knoxville with a grant to incorporate an infiltration system into the dog park in order to prevent pollutants from entering the nearby First Creek.
Amenities for the dog park include separate sections for small and large dogs, human and dog water fountains and dog waste stations. Dog Waste Stations The Tennessee Izaak Walton League has partnered with Knoxville Parks and Recreation to place dog waste stations in popular dog-walking areas (primarily parks and greenways). To sponsor a dog waste station, please contact the Tennessee Izaak Walton League at 865-414-5590.
