Centennial Dog Park

It’s #FurryFriday ! I had the privilege of puppy sitting, and visited some of the Metro Nashville dog parks around town. For the next few Fridays, I’ll be posting some reviews of these dog parks. Please be advised, as I do not have a dog, what I’m looking for in a dog park may not be what your looking for in a dog park. Generally, I wanna get some steps in on my Fitbit while listening to headphones and let the dog run around so we can have a lazy sleepy afternoon on the couch later that afternoon.

Dog Park Name: Centennial Dog Park

Address: 2500 West End Avenue, 37203

Why choose this dog park? Because it’s central to everything else on your to-do list for the day anyways.

Dog Rating: 5 out of 5

Opened in January 2006, this dog park is a stones throw from Centennial Park. It includes a 2 acre “big dog park” with a pathway and greenery on a very steep hill, and a half acre spot “little dog park”. I liked how central it was to the city, and the dog had LOTS of dogs to play with. However, there was a lot of unscooped poop and it was hard to walk in the area without gagging on the stench.

It’s always interesting to me, as someone who’s not an animal person, to watch animal people. At one point, a dog came to me, sniffed my hand, and tried to jump up playfully. It’s owner snapped at me: “Hey, we’re teaching her not to jump. Push her down.” Nah, buddy. You’re teaching her not to jump. I have nothing to do with that. I awkwardly pointed to my headphones, indicating I couldn’t hear him, pet the dog, and continued walking the paved pathway to get my steps.

But it was interesting to watch, as many people in this park were very hands on with all of the dogs, throwing toys for dogs other than their own, pouring water for dogs other than their own, and petting dogs other than their own.
