Interested in giving your dog a chance to run off-leash? Keep in mind that there is an ordinance prohibiting pets from being off-leash in common areas such as Metro Parks (including Barringer Hill!). Owners can be cited for violating this ordinance. Off-leash dogs pose several hazards- namely to pedestrians and cyclists. Dogs running loose in children's areas are extremely dangerous since a running child often triggers a dog's prey instinct.
Please, please, please keep your dog on a leash at the park!
To let your dog off-leash, Metro Parks has opened several dog parks in the Louisville area. Visit this link to learn where they are and how to join!
Membership fees will cover the cost of fun dog equipment and clean up.
