Dog Park Numbers Growing Across the Country

Posted 04-10-18.

Sevierville’s PETSafe Unleashed Dog Park, located at Sevierville City Park (1005 Park Road), officially opened last year on May 13. Although it remains the only dog park in Sevier County, dog parks are among the fastest growing park amenities across the nation, according to the Trust for Public Land (tpl.org). In the past nine years, there has been a 40% increase in the number of dog parks in the one-hundred largest U.S. cities.

 

Sevierville’s PETSafe Unleashed Dog Park is open 8AM-9PM daily April-October and 8AM-8PM November-March. The facility offers separate large and small dog areas, dog agility equipment, water, shade, observation cameras, Wi-Fi connectivity, benches and a designated parking/handicapped parking area. All pets must be vaccinated as required by City and State laws.

The dog park was made possible by a PETSafe $100,000.00 contribution through the Legacy Park Foundation.
