The NEWEST dog park to Mountain Brook is in the perfect spot for those that live in the neighborhood near the elementary school. Opened back in January 2022, this park is perfect for pups of all sizes. It’s even equipped with a dog water fountain—CUTE.

2. Remy’s Dog Park—Red Mountain Park

My dog meets a new bestie every time we visit Remy’s Dog Park. It’s probably become one of my favorite dog parks in Birmingham since it has two separate spaces for big and little dogs. It’s guaranteed that your dog will be wiped out from visiting Remy’s.

3. Cahaba Dog Park—Trussville

Hidden away in Trussville, you’ll find the Cahaba Dog Park. This little park is an off-leash spacious fenced-in area where you can let your little four-legged creatures run wild!

Guys, there’s a dog beach at Lock Haven. If your furry best friend is a digger, then take them here because they’ll never get bored from all the sand.

5. Rhodes Park in Southside
