Friends of Millbrook Dog Park is a volunteer organization providing day-to-day support to the dog park at Millbrook Exchange Park. While heavy maintenance is supplied by the City of Raleigh through the Parks and Recreation Department, Friends of Millbrook Dog Park supplies thousands of poop bags per year and our volunteers work to keep the park clean, perform light maintenance, and provide educational assistance to dog park newcomers.We always need donations and new volunteers! If you'd like to help, go to the Contact Us page and let us know.
There is more to a Dog Park than just a field where the dogs can run free. Friends of Millbrook Dog Park volunteers are involved in the operation and maintenance of the park as well as providing educational programs to area dog owners. This website contains information about the park, its rules, and answers to many questions that you might have. If you have yet to make your first visit to the park, please familiarize yourself with this material to make your visit a successful one.
The Dog Park is composed of three separate fenced-in areas:
The "Large" Dog Park area contains large, open areas as well as trees and natural areas. This entire area is covered in wood chip mulch which is constantly being replenished to keep the park (and the dogs) clean.
The "Small" Dog Park area is a smaller area that is reserved for small, elderly, or infirm dogs. In this case, "small" refers to the size of this section of the park and not necessarily the size of the dogs. If you take a dog into this area, it should be compatible with the style of play associated with smaller dogs and puppies.
The Picnic Shelter area is a separate section, situated between the Large Dog Park Area and the Small Dog Park Area, that provides a double-entry gate system for the two park areas.
There is a separate, double-entry gate on the south side of the Large Dog Park area to provide additional access to that portion of the park.
Before entering the off-leash areas, be sure to read the Park Rules that are posted at each entrance.
