Freedom Run Dog Park

2098 Turning Wheel Lane

This is the second Dog Park the City of Franklin Parks Department has opened in the past year. Freedom Run is a 1 acre park that has a section for small dogs under 30 lbs and a big dog area for those over 30 lbs.

The park is closed from dark to dawn each day and all dogs must have current licenses, rabies tags, and vaccinations. Dogs must be over 4 months old.

The City of Franklin has a leash law that requires all dogs be on a 6 foot leash and under the control of the owner at all times. No person shall let their dog run off leash in any city park. It is also required that dog owners must clean up after their pets by collecting and disposing of the waste appropriately.

Dogs are prohibited from entering any lake, pond, stream or river on park property or on any tennis court, basketball court, or manicured turf sports field enclosed by a fence or wall or any area deemed off limits by the Director of Parks.

this park has potential, but there are areas that are down to dirt where grass used to be. instead of re-sodding, woodchips are being used and that just makes more of a mess for the dogs and the owners. there is a concrete slab in the middle of the field that doesn't quite make sense because it takes away from the dogs overall playing area. I was glad to find out there was a dog park so close to my home. but after going there I'll take the extra drive to tower park instead. I'll check this park out again in a few months to see if there are any changes.

Great park with a big dog and little dog side. They are currently building a shade canopy on the big dog side so it is temporarily closed.

Fun place to hang out and take pups to play.

Great dog park. Well maintained and seems like people here are respectful and clean after their pets. There's good seating in shade for humans (clean metal benches that aren't falling appart) and agility obstacles for dogs to play. Also there is a separated area for smaller dogs. Only complaint is the dusty gravel parking lot. With dogs your car will be covered in dust.
