- Dawson Cut-Off, Petal, MS 39465, USA
The Petal Dog Park is located on Dawson Cut Off, just off South Main Street, behind the A & B Cycles in Petal, Mississippi. Built by the City of Petal with the support and funding of local businesses and patrons of the park, the Petal Dog Park officially opened on November 17th of 2007.
Although the Petal Dog Park was built primarily for local dogs and their owners, the news and popularity of the dog park is growing and today attracts a growing number of neighboring patrons from accross the bridge in Hattiesburg.
The Petal Dog Park is open everyday and has no set hours and ample lighting at night, so you will usually find someone there along with their canine companions enjoying the park when you arrive (or usually within a short time after if you happen to arrive and find yourself alone at the park.)
The Petal Dog Park features two separate fenced enclosures. One for smaller dogs and one for the larger dogs. This helps keep the peace and accidents down from big dogs trampling little dogs. For the most part, everyone gets along pretty well at the park when they follow the rules and practice basic dog park etiquette.
