Dog Parks and Dog Wash

MWR has two dog parks on Main Post, one on the corner of Edwards and Carpenter streets and another at the Youth Sports Complex on 1st Division Road. MWR parks are managed by Outdoor Recreation and include agility playground equipment. Spaces are divided into two areas, one for dogs up to 25 pounds and one for larger dogs. Guests are legally responsible for their dog's behavior. We comply with Army regulations about breed restrictions on post, so we cannot permit Pit Bulls, Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Chows, Presa Canarios, or mixes of these breeds. Just as all dogs on post must be registered with the Fort Benning Veterinary Clinic, so too must all dogs that visit our parks. We host a number of events each year at the dog park on 1st Division Road, and Fort Benning families who live off post are invited to attend; however, their dogs must also be registered at the Vet Clinic and have shot records on file there. The process is simple. Call 706-545-4444 to schedule an appointment.
