Piedmont Dog Park

Piedmont Park is a haven for dogs and humans alike! While a City of Atlanta ordinance requires all dogs in public areas to be leashed, Piedmont Dog Park is one of the few locations in metro Atlanta where dogs may run free. This special off-leash area, open since 2002, is one of the most popular features of Piedmont Park.

Piedmont Park Conservancy urges you to be a responsible dog owner. Cleaning up after your pet is the law! Doggie waste bags are provided throughout the park. Please urge violators to clean up after their pets as well. Fines for allowing a dog to run off-leash or for not cleaning up after them include a fine of up to $1,000, a prison term up to 1 year, community service up to six months, or a combination of the above. Don't let this happen to you.

A few key rules to remember:

•  Use of the Dog Park is at your own risk.
•  Owners are responsible for the action of their dogs.
•  Aggressive dogs are not allowed and must be controlled and/or removed.
•  Owners should be aware of their dog’s behavior and move to another area of the park if requested.
•  No dogs can be left unattended in the OLA.
•  The small dog enclosure is for dogs less than 30 pounds
•  The only food of any kind allowed is bite-sized treats.
•  Serious problems resulting in injury must be reported immediately.
•  Swimming is prohibited in Clara Meer for both dogs and people.

Piedmont Dog Park is located at the Park Drive bridge. See the Park Map.
