Dog Park 625 x 200

North Garner Dog Park

Location: Garner Recreational Park

Due to a water leak at the North Garner Dog Park, the water spigot inside of the park will be shutoff effective immediately on Friday, August 17 and remain off throughout the weekend.  Buckets of water will be supplied from nearby water sources.  Repairs are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 20, with the park closed all day.  Intermittent closures will occur throughout the week. We hope to have this park open for normal operations as soon as possible.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to resolve and enhance this park.
