dog park 2White Plains & Turkey Hill Dog Parks are public off-leash areas operated and maintained by Charles County Government’s Parks and Grounds Division. We invite County dog owners and their pets to enjoy these unique facilities. Our Dog Parks provide safe, legal areas in which dogs can run, play and socialize. Our dog owners seem to enjoy these parks just as much as their four-legged friends!

Each one-acre park has two separate fenced-in areas. The large area is designed for general dog play. The smaller area is for smaller dogs, puppies (must be at least 4 months old) or for shy dogs not quite ready to socialize in the larger general play area.

dog park 1At both parks, you find secure fenced areas to protect your dog, numerous benches, a picnic pavilion, a message bulletin board and plenty of friendly people and their dogs. Plastic pick-up bags are provided by the park so that visitors are always ready to clean up after their dogs. Drinking water is available at White Plains only (not during winter months).

Hours of Operation

Seven (7) days a week, 8:00 a.m. until Dusk (Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day).
