BEST SPOTS: Dog Parks

BEST SPOTS: Dog Parks

ATLANTA -- For this week's edition of Best Spots, we have compiled a list of dog parks for you to take you furry friend for some fun.

Recently, dog parks have been sprouting up in the Atlanta area. With newly modified leash law restrictions, owners who may or may not have yards need a place for their dogs to run free and get adequate daily exercise.

Some say, these parks are becoming more popular as the country begins placing more of an emphasis on health following the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative.

Dog owners in the Atlanta area can take their furry children to the Henry Jones Dog Park in Brook Run Park for some off-leash exercise. This fully wooded park in Dunwoody is four acres large however; it doesn’t have a water fountain. Dogs can drink from a community water bucket which is provided by the park.
