Dog Parks in the City of Decatur
Decatur Dog Parks have been busy with families, neighbors and four-legged friends visiting and playing together. Dog parks give citizens and their dogs an opportunity to exercise and socialize. Kids can discover that most dogs are friendly and fun. Visit a dog park soon. Remember that dogs must be under the control of a responsible person and obedient to commands. Watch out for slobbery tennis balls and flying Frisbees!
