The Tri-City Dog Park Society was founded to promote, establish, and maintain off-leash dog parks in our community.
Since 2005, we’ve raised community awareness of dog parks, held demonstration dog parks, and raised funds to help open the first dog park in the Tri-Cities area. We worked with the City of Richland Parks and Recreation Department to open a 1⁄2-acre temporary dog park located at Badger Mountain Community Park.
Paws-abilities Place, the first 2 1/2 acre phase of the dog park, was opened in October 2011. An addition, which doubled the size of the dog park to 5 acres, was added in July 2017. It is also located at Badger Mountain Community Park. We continue to work with the City of Richland to maintain and improve the park.
