The Dog Park is now open! For more information, please visit the Dog Park section of Parks & Recreation.
The off-leash three quarter acre dog park is located at Olde Izaak Walton Park (850 Davis Court, SE 20175). This project was completed in the spring of 2009.
The dog park is the Town’s only recreational facility specifically for our four-footed citizens. The dog park at Olde Izaak Walton Park includes a 25,000 square foot fenced off-leash area, dog waste stations, picnic tables and benches. Citizens had lobbied for the creation of a dog park in Leesburg for a number of years, but finding an appropriate location proved challenging. A number of sites were considered, including the possibility of leasing land from Morven Park. In September 2008, the Town Council approved the plans to build the park at Olde Izaak Walton Park, an existing Town park. Construction costs were approximately $18,500, which was significantly lower than costs would have been for a new park. The dog park is open from dawn to dusk and can accommodate up to 10 dogs at one time.
