Dog Park

The dog park at Tanner Park is an amazing community asset, and we want to keep it safe and clean for all our neighborhood pups. Eckington Parks & Arts is responsible for day-to-day maintenance and management of the dog park, including turf cleaning, purchase of dog waste bags, and setting rules to help keep pups safe. We are volunteer-run and receive no funding from DC government, relying on monetary donations from dog park users and community members to cover these expenses.

Dog Park Rules

Per DC law, all dogs using the park must be vaccinated against rabies and distemper viruses. These vaccines are given every 1-3 years depending on the dog's age and vaccine formulation. We request that all dogs be vaccinated against parvo virus and kept on year-round preventative medications for fleas, heartworms, and other parasites (as recommended by your veterinarian). 

We ask that dog park users abide by the following rules to help keep our pups safe and park clean. Please see our FAQ page for additional information on dog park maintenance and mishaps. Use of the dog park is at your own risk.

No stuffed toys or toys that break easily

Picking up fluff for an hour isn’t fun

No toys or balls smaller than a tennis ball 

ER surgery on someone else’s dog is $400 to $4,000

Remove damaged toys and toy parts/pieces ASAP

That surgery still costs $400 to $4000

Remove toys if causing guarding or aggression between dogs

Unless you want to chat with Animal Control and maybe the DC Health Department
