About the dog park

The Peachtree City Dog Park is managed by the Peachtree City Dog Park Association, a charitable 501c3 non-profit organization run by volunteers. In 2009, the volunteer Board of Directors of the Peachtree City Dog Park Association installed a new membership program for the park, designed to keep the park open and properly maintained.

One of the biggest myths related to the Dog Park is that the venue is funded by the city government. There is no line item in the city's budget for the Dog Park. In fact, everything you see at the Dog Park was funded by contributions through the nonprofit Peachtree City Dog Park Association.

We are truly fortunate to have a safe, clean and friendly place to let our dogs socialize and exercise, but we are counting on you to help us keep this jewel in good repair.

We thank you in advance for going to the membership section of this web site and actively participating in one of the hottest surburban amenities in the metro Atlanta region: our Peachtree City Dog Park.

You can make a donation to our general operating fund in the amount of your choice. Because we're a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization, donations are tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers.

Getting to the dog park

The Peachtree City Dog Park is open every day from dawn to dusk. From the intersection of GA-74 and GA-54:

Go east on GA-54 to Peachtree Parkway and turn right (south). At the first stop sign (McIntosh Trail), turn right (west). The entrances to the park are the first and second lefts.

-or -

Go south on GA-74 and turn left (east) on Kelly Drive (Kelly Drive becomes McIntosh Trail). The two entrances to the park are on the right just past the public works entrance.

Areas within the park

The Peachtree City Dog Park encompasses roughly 3.2 acres and is divided into three separate fenced areas to accommodate various dog and member needs.

Large dogs

The Peachtree City Dog Park has a large area for dogs over 30 lbs, along with a gazebo and outdoor seating for the humans. The ground is covered with woodchips, and bags are provided for dog waste. The large park offers a water spigot, a small refillable pool, a drinking fountain, benches, and plenty of chairs to sit on.

Small dogs

The Peachtree City Dog Park has a smaller area with woodchips and grass for the smaller pooches who might be intimidated by the bigger dogs. There's a gazebo and outdoor seating for the humans here as well, plus dog waste bags. Like the large park area, this area also features a water spigot, a small refillable pool, a drinking fountain, as well as plenty of chairs.

Uncertain dogs

The rear lot is open to all dogs, but it's particularly useful for dogs that might be uncertain about others, such as first-timers and timid dogs who are working on their self-confidence. These dogs should be accompanied only by their adult family members and kids over twelve years old. Because the Peachtree City Dog Park is a family-friendly park, dogs that aren't good with children should use the rear lot when children are present at the park. Here you will find a water spigot, a small pool, and plenty of chairs.

Park rules

We are truly fortunate to have a safe, clean, and friendly place to let our dogs socialize and exercise, but we are counting on you to help us keep this jewel in good repair.
