Lexington is home to many dog parks. Unlike some other urban areas, the city is extremely dog-friendly, so there are many places to go with your canine. However, the rules do differ in these parks depending on which you go to. Therefore, we recommend looking closely at the rules and regulations of each specific park to find one that works best for you.

In total, Lexington is home to six dog parks. However, some smaller parks are known as “dog lots” instead of “dog parks.” These are in very urban areas, of course.

Let’s look at each dog park in turn.
