The East Clayton Dog Park has two separate enclosures. The small dog area may not only be used by dogs under 20 pounds, but also is a great area for a dog to rehab after surgery and also may be used for personal training when other dogs aren’t present. The large dog area is approximately one acre and amenities include rocks, a tunnel and benches. Water is available in each fenced area and a wash station is available near the entrance. Poop bags and trash containers are provided at multiple locations. There are also picnic tables outside the fenced areas.


  • It is a state law that your dog must have a current rabies vaccination and must wear the rabies tag while at the dog park.
  • Poop bags are provided and it is a town ordinance to clean up after your pet. Please observe your pet the entire time it is in the enclosed area.
  • Dogs must be on leash until entering the enclosures. The entrance to each fenced area includes a Bullpen. This is the area where you can safely take your dog off leash before entering and also where you put the leash back on before exiting.
  • Dogs should NOT be on leash inside the enclosures. This can lead to aggressive behavior and potential problems between dogs.
  • Children under 12 should not be inside the fenced areas, especially in car seats and strollers. Over 12 should be closely supervised. Some dogs do not live around children and certain breeds are not always child friendly. Even though your child may not be afraid of dogs, multiple dogs that are playing and running present a danger to a small child who may fall or get knocked down. Children running around can also excite dogs that are already in an excited state. Remember also that dogs communicate sometimes by growling or snapping at each other.
  • Personal toys or treats should not be brought into enclosed areas when multiple dogs are there.
  • Smoking and/or eating are not allowed inside the enclosed areas but there are picnic tables located around the park.
  • No more than 3 dogs per adult or puppies less than 4 months are allowed.
  • Choke/prong/or pinch collars are not allowed. Animals can injure themselves when playing with these types of collars on.
  • Conducting professional dog training is prohibited without permission of the Parks and Recreation Dept.
  • Owners should wear shirts and shoes while at the park.
  • No dogs in heat
  • Dog bites and emergencies should be reported to 9-1-1. Other problems should be reported to the Parks and Recreation dept. at 553-1550
