OFFICIAL DOG PARKS- currently Open

Barrington Paw Park located behind the baseball fields on the western side of Haines Park. The dog park is open during regular park hours.

Newport Dog Park
The City of Newport's off-leash park is located on Connell Highway at the base of the Pell Bridge (directly across the street from the Newport Playhouse). The park is free and open to the public from 6AM to 9PM. All dogs over 6 months of age must be licensed. For a map and driving directions from your location click here.

Dexter Dog Park - in the west end of Providence at the Dexter Trainer Ground baseball field. Parade St.

Gano St. Dog Park (NEW)
About 3/4 acre fenced in area. Double gated entry. Adjacent basketball courts are lit, so there is some light for night time use. No other amenities now, but we are working on raising money for shade, benches, dispensers, etc. Location: Gano Street, entry from Power Street or Fremont Street.

Warwick Dog Park
The fenced-in facility is 33,000 square feet and features a spacious grassy area, a shady tree-filled section and several fire hydrants for the city's four-legged residents. There is a small holding area adjacent to the main park gate, where residents can safely unleash and leash their dogs, as well as several benches and bleachers for pet owners to use while their pooches play.
Directions: Take a left on Asylum Avenue from Buttonwoods Avenue. Go to the end (residential area). You will see a big sign "Warwick City Park." Turn into the parking lot and take the main road down a while. Fenced in dog park is on the right.


Chase Farm, Lincoln-
This place is amazing and beautiful. There seems to be pockets of times when some officials will hide and wait to ticket off leash dogs but I have yet to experience this.

India Pt. Park
in the winter is great fun. Summertime is too packed with kids so the dog people keep their distance but when it cools down you can find many dogs when the sun sets.

Rodger Williams Park -
I hear about lots of people visiting this spot.

Veezy St. - Providence, RI
Don't know the official name but it has become quite a local dog spot...but this one comes with lots of controversy with neighbors, walkers and police. Not sure if this should be recommended but it does exists.

Wanskuck Park Dog Park -
Prov. RI Located on Woodward Road, between Branch Avenue and Mineral Spring Avenue Open 24 hours. Fenced, benches, handicap access, trees, trashcans. Comments= a nice dirt walking path and a large open grassy area. Leash laws may be enforced so use at your own discretion. Fencing in disrepair and area is next to the street so use caution.

A large fenced in open area that dogs can go off leash. There is a small bench to sit while the dogs play. It is located next to the Richmond dog pound, just up the hill.
