New Avondale Leash Free Dog Park Coming Soon!


The park will extend all the way under the Fuller Warren Bridge.

Rendering of the John Gorrie Dog Park, announcing January 2014, coming soon to Avondale.

Avondale dog owners: Itching to let the dogs out? Need to let Fido run as free as the wind blows? Thanks to dog lovers and some generous donors, the new John Gorrie Dog Park, announced in early 2014, is closer than ever. The $300,000 price tag is being covered by the diligent and dedicated fundraising effort started by Riverside families and the Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP) Society.

Riverside Avondale Preservation is handling all the fundraising and construction oversight of the “off leash” John Gorrie Dog Park, which spans two acres of Riverside Park, connected to College Street, extending under the Fuller Warren Bridge.

Big dogs, little dogs – no matter, there will be a place for them to run, and a terrific gathering place for the dog lover and the dogless alike.  

And on the horizon, after the park is finished, RAP and generous donors have plans on the drawing board for an Art Walk extending from Riverside Park to Riverside Arts Market.
