Savannah Neighborhoods with The Best Dog Parks
Savannah, Georgia, is not only a fantastic place for humans to live but also an excellent city for our four-legged friends.Lucky for dog-lovers, Savannah boasts several neighborhoods with outstanding dog parks. Here, we’ll explore these neighborhoods and the wonderful dog-friendly spaces they have to offer.
Address: Daffin Park, 1301 E Victory Dr, Savannah, GA 31404
Located within beautiful Daffin Park, the Herty Pines Dog Park is Savannah’s largest dog park and offers two spacious, double fence-ind areas: one for large dogs and the other for small dogs. Here dogs can run and play off-leash amongst the plentiful pine trees, which offer complete shade of the area. Several water stations with buckets are located within the perimeters so that fido can drink fresh water or cool off on a summer day. Not only is it a fantastic spot for dogs to socialize and burn off some energy, but humans can socialize too at one of the many picnic tables found around the dog park. The Herty Pines Dog Park is perhaps Savannah’s busiest dog park as it is located in Midtown and central to so many of Savannah’s neighborhood.
Address: Windsor Neighborhood Park, 414 Briarcliff Cir, Savannah, GA 31419
This well-maintained dog park in the Windsor Forest neighborhood is a favorite among locals in Southside Savannah. Nestled within the Windsor Forest community park, which also includes a small playground and short walking trail, this dog park features separate sections for small and large dogs, providing a safe and fun environment for all furry companions. Fun obstacles are located througout providing a unique challenge for the most active of dogs. There is even a small water pump from which dogs can cool off with a drink and, like Herty Pines, this dog park is super shady. What we love most about this dog park is that its less than a mile from the lakeside Joseph Tribble Park, which is the perect destination for long walks on the leash.
Address: 1101 Mohawk St, Savannah, GA 31419
The Mohawk Dog Park is another popular spot for dogs living in and around Southside Savannah. This large dog park is a lucious greenspace enclosed by a double-gated fence with two areas to separate big and small dogs. Like its nearby counterpart in the Windsor Forest neighborhood, it also offers a few obstacles and props for dogs to interact with. This Savannah favorite is often praised for being the least muddy of the dog parks and for being a great place to meet fellow humans. It’s also the only Savannah dog park located right next to water. The beautiful Mohawk Lake sits adjacent to the park creating a serene setting.
Address: Fort Ave., Tybee Island, GA 31328
Currently the beaches on Tybee Island do not allow dogs. However, that certainly does not mean Tybee Island is not dog friendly. Locals love the Tybee Island Dog Parks, which are located within the back streets of North Beach. The island has not one, but two separate dog parks, which are respectively designated for large (30 lb. +) and small dogs (under 30 lbs.). The parks feature double-gated fences for optimal safety with poop bags, water bowls, a small tub, and a larger doggie pool. Visitors have noted they love that the dog parks are covered in mulch, which keeps fido cleaner and easier to brush off than at traditional, muddy or dirt-filled dog parks.
Address: 500 E Broad St, Savannah, GA 31401
Located in the heart of Downtown Savannah, the Mother Matilda Beasley Dog Park offers a convenient place for city-dwelling dogs to enjoy some off-leash time. The dog park, which is primarily made up of sand, is privately funded with donations made by those who frequent the park. The shaded areas and friendly atmosphere make it a wonderful spot for dogs and their humans. The surrounding paved walking trail allows for additional on-leash exercise time with pup. One of the reasons this Savannah dog park is so great is because of its proximity to dog-friendly restaurants in both the Victorian and Historic Districts. The park is only a 15-minute walk to the Collins Quarters in Forsyth Park!
Address: The Landings, 71 Green Island Rd, Savannah, GA 31411
The Landings Club is a private, gated community located on Skidaway Island within the Moon River District of Savannah, and it has one of the prettiest, well-kept dog parks in the area. The dog park is open to paying members of The Landings Association and requires a Dog Park Permit. Permits can be obtained by bringing documentation to The Landings Association showing proof from a veterinarian that fido has had shots for rabies, DHLP/Parvo and Bordetella (kennel cough), within the past year. With a huge double-gated green space featuring shady oaks intermingled with sunspots, The Landings Club Dog Park offers plenty of space for furry friends to run and play in a lovely, natural setting. Additionally, The Landings Club has 30 miles of excellent walking trails and is close to the Skidaway Island State Park, which also offers scenic, dog-friendly walking trails. Submersed in natural habitats and maritime forests to wander through, this coastal residential island community is an incredible home for pets and humans..
Address: 83 Gateway Dr., Pooler, GA 31322\
Although this dog park technically is not in Savannah, it sits close to the Savannah border in Pooler and is located in a community where many local workers commute from: Savannah Quarters. The East Haven Dog Park, also known as the Savannah Quarters Dog Park, is located off East Haven Boulevard and provides residents of both the Easthaven and Westbrook quarters with access to the park. Like The Landings Club, this park is privately owned for these community-members only. However, unlike The Landings, no permit is required to bring mans-best-friend within the gates of Easthaven. This grassy dog park offers water stations and separate gated areas for large and small dogs. A great perk of this dog park, is that there is a Woof Gang Bakery for dogs that sits in the shopping center at the front of the community: a perfect stop after a dog park romp. Lastly, there is even an unofficial Facebook page for the dog park.
When it comes to finding the best dog-friendly neighborhoods in Savannah, these areas and dog parks stand out as top choices.
