Riverside Dog Park

555 North Eastern Boulevard

This Fayetteville facility has gone to the dogs - literally! The Riverside Dog Park, located near the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, opened in Sept. 2008 and was an instant success. A joint effort between the Bark for a Park Committee and Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation Department, Riverside Dog Park is open each day dawn to dusk; dogs outside the enclosed area must be on a leash. A small enclosure is provided for small dogs that weigh less than 25 pounds and another, larger area is set aside for larger dogs. All dogs must be legally licensed and have current vaccinations; tags must be securely attached to the dog's collar. Have fun with your dog at Riverside!

I have been coming to this park for a couple years now and my great Dane just loves it!There is even a nice trail I can walk my dog on before she goes in to the dog park area. Its located right across from the Cape fear botanical gardens. Most of the time people clean up after their pets but ya know there’s always that one owner. So just be mindful where you’re stepping. *Large dog area and small dog area Closes at dusk

Nice big flat dog park, mostly grass. I was worried by other reviews that it would be very muddy after a rain, but we went early morning after a night of heavy rain and the only puddles in the large dog area were in holes that dogs had dug. (Naturally our dog found one and laid down in it!) It is next to a walking path which is nice and a sewage treatment plant which is a little smelly but to dogs, probably an interesting feature. Did not visit the small dog park but there is one. Our dog gives it 5*.

Huge dog park with plenty of space to roam and plenty of shade. The small dog section is the biggest I've been to and it's great to let my dachshund run around for a bit before we go to the big dog side for my aussie/corgie to run around chasing the big dogs.

Brought my 4 month GS puppy here to get him used to other dogs, it was great but there were some overly aggressive dogs there. And my dog is really big for his age so size wasn’t a problem until he was on the bottom of a dog pile lol but I would recommend bringing your own water dish just Incase because some of the dogs liked to pee on/in the water buckets. But overall it’s really great there’s plenty of shade and room for your dogs to run around. I will be bringing my puppy back soon

My dog loves it he's a medium size dog so he can go on either side to run free and play be we prefer the small dog side just because some of the bigger dogs although playful can be a bit aggressive so to avoid any mix ups all together we just stay to the small dog side
