Columbia DogPark offers recreation for owners and their four-legged friends! The park, owned and operated by Columbia Association (CA), consists of 2.7 acres and provides the venue and opportunity for dogs to get vital exercise and socialization. The area is divided into two separate fenced areas for small and large dogs.

  • Small dog area: A 0.7-acre area for dogs weighing less than 25 pounds
  • Large dog area: Two acres designed for dogs weighing more than 25 pounds

Each area is equipped with benches, a watering station for dogs and multiple waste-disposal locations, each with a supply of pet waste bags.

The first visit can be a little stressful — both for owners and their dogs! First-time visitors might want to consider visiting the park at non-peak times for a less crowded experience. Peak times are Monday through Friday in the early morning or late afternoon, and all day on Saturday and Sunday. If you give your dog a little time to get acclimated, you might be pleasantly surprised, and have a healthier, friendlier and more playful dog!

Please read Columbia DogPark rules and regulations before visiting the park.

All dog owners entering Columbia DogPark are legally responsible for their dogs while in the park or on DogPark grounds.
