"During this pop up event, dogs will be allowed off leash while at our specially crafted dog park.
Although this is a free event, we ask that you please register if you plan to attend. It helps us plan for how many people to expect!
There will be plenty of fun for dogs and their owners! The dog park features four acres for dogs to roam, and a small dog area, too!
For the humans, Food and Beer vendors will be at the park making sure you stay fed and hydrated while you play with your best friend. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets, and anything else you need to keep yourself and your pooch cool and comfortable! There will be fun raffles for pet (and human) prizes throughout the event!
Pet-themed vendors will be at the park too, so you can purchase a new toy for your pup, learn about dog health & safety, adoption, and more!
This is a permitted special event at Dix Park. Unless you and your dog are within the pop-up dog park on the day the pop-up dog park is available, all pets MUST be leashed when at Dix Park or any other City of Raleigh park.
Please register if you plan to attend this event. Having a count of how many people to expect helps us plan and we can contact you in the event of inclement weather.
