Colonial Place Greenway Dog Park

Pet Friendly = People Friendly 🐾

Some might say that our neighborhood has really gone to the dogs, and that’d be true…sort of.

If you’re a dog, there’s no better place to be than Colonial Place and Riverview, as we’re one of a handful of neighborhoods in Hampton Roads with its very own dog park!  Canines of every name and nature are invited to participate, but all visitors are required to play nicely, share their toys, have had all their shots, and remain leashed until entering the enclosed dog park area.

Park Rules:

  • A maximum of three dogs per owner is allowed at any one time. 
  • Dog owners must remain with their dog and must keep it in sight at all times. 
  • Dogs must be leashed while entering and leaving the dog park area. 
  • Dogs must wear valid rabies vaccination and city license tags. 
  • Dogs showing aggression towards people or other dogs must be immediately leashed and removed. 
  • No dogs in heat are allowed. 
  • Owners are legally responsible for any bodily injury and property damage caused by their dog. 
  • Owners must clean up and dispose of waste left by their dogs and provide the equipment for these tasks. 
  • Puppies must be older than four months.
