A [W] dog park is a park for dogs to exercise and (often) play off-leash in a controlled environment under the supervision of their owners.

In many regions, dogs are to be kept on a leash in public parks. This tag is to mark designated areas where dogs can run free. These areas are often adjacent to a park or a specially marked part of a park and are often fenced, so that dogs cannot escape into the larger park. In general, there is water for the dogs and little plastic sacks to clean up after the dog. Sometimes there is an obstacle track for the dogs.

How to Map

Draw an Area area along the outline of the area. If you are in a hurry or not able to map the area, add a Node node at the centre of the area. Tag the node or area with leisure=dog_park.

Useful tags

  • barrier=fence – This area is bounded by a fence
  • lit=yes – This area is lit after dark
  • surface=* – Surface covering the area; often grass

Possible Tagging Mistakes

landuse=grass should not be used in combination with this tag. Use surface=grass to indicate the surface of the dog park instead.

Possible synonym

amenity=dog_park - If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag. Automated edits are strongly discouraged unless you really know what you are doing!
