Bring your dogs and march with us. All sizes are welcome! Please make sure that your dog can handle crowds well.
We line up on Commerce Street no later than 4:00pm. We exit the parade at 13th street near the YMCA, so our pups can have a break.

Large Dog Area to Remain Open Through Winter Months
The Friends of the Lynchburg Dog Park and the City of Lynchburg’s Parks & Recreation Department are pleased to announce that due to regular rainfall and ongoing maintenance this past Spring and Summer, the City’s off-leash dog park will enjoy a shorter-than-normal closure schedule during the upcoming Fall and Winter months.
Starting Saturday, December 2, the small-dog portion of the park will be closed to all users, while crews aerate, seed and rehabilitate the grass there. This side of the park will reopen on March 17, 2014.
The large-dog sidewill remain open all winter, only closing on March 17 2014, when the small-dog side reopens for the season.
The large-dog portion will remain closed from March 17 to May 26 2014, while similar work is performed on the turf there. City crews also expect to install “dig pits” on both sides, in the areas where some digging has already occurred. Both sides will be open for use on May 26.
As always, dog park users are encouraged not to use the park during periods of extremely wet and muddy conditions, to reduce unnecessary wear-and-tear on the turf. Additionally, only dogs with current City or county dog licenses are allowed in the park at any time.
