Dog Parks

Our city’s commitment to public parks and open spaces doesn’t stop at serving people — furry friends are included! There are currently nine off-leash parks dedicated to letting dogs be dogs with ample open space to run and play, waste stations for convenient clean up and rest benches for parents to kick back and make new friends.

Pet Tributes & Memorials

Celebrate your loved pet with a lasting gift that gives back to our community dog parks. Our pets are an important member of our family and community. Pay tribute to the joy they bring us and support Madison’s dog parks with a Furever Tag.

Furever tags are engraved memory tags installed on a unique and locally-created art sculpture within one of our city’s nine off-leash public dog parks. Tags are generously provided and engraved by Pet Supplies Plus .
