Dog Park

Chet Hobert Park has two enclosed areas where dogs can romp off leash. The adjoining enclosures — one for small dogs, the other for larger dogs — were built in 2012 by Daniel Judge as his Eagle Scout project. The off-leash dog park is for dogs only; no other animals are allowed.
• Dogs must be legally licensed and vaccinated, and wear a visible license in the dog park.
• Dogs must be on leash when entering and leaving the enclosed dog park.
• Dogs must be accompanied at all times by their handlers, who must be 16 or older.
• Children under age 8 are not permitted in the off-leash area; children 9 to 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
• Handlers must clean up after their dogs, and repair any holes their dogs might dig.
• Aggressive dogs, dogs in heat, and dogs under 4-months old are not allowed.
• Dogs that display aggression must be immediately removed.
• Dog owners are legally and financially responsible for their dogs. Clarke County Parks & Recreation and Clarke County government are not liable for any injury or damage caused by a dog.

Additional rules are posted at the off-leash dog park entrance.

Possession/consumption of alcoholic beverages on park property is prohibited. All animals must be kept on leashes at all times.
