Large Dog Areas Opens for Spring on April 13! 


The small dog area is now closed for a short time to allow the area to recover, and small dogs are allowed in the large dog area. Please watch your dogs carefully if they are not used to sharing the park with different sized dogs.

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.

The Friends of Lynchburg Dog Park, Inc. is a Virginia non-profit corporation. We received IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status approval in order to fundraise for the construction, maintenance, and management of a public off-leash dog park within the City of Lynchburg, Virginia.
Working in partnership with the City, the off-leash park will be built within the Blackwater Creek Athletic Area.
The project will be funded through donations and grants, and will be constructed in phases as monies become available.
