Fenced Dog Park

South Fayette Township plans to build a fenced dog park in Fairview Park as part of the Mayview site expansion.

Construction is expected to occur in 2022. Replacing the existing off-leash dog zone, the new, 5-acre Bark Park will have subtle fencing and wooded, meandering paths in a natural environment with access to shade, benches and water. It will be accessible from the Mayview site expansion of Fairview Park.

Off-leash permits extended free of charge in 2022

In 2022, permits for the Off-Leash Dog Zone at Fairview Park will be extended at no cost to residents and non-residents as South Fayette Township completes construction of a 5-acre fenced, wooded dog park.

The existing zone will remain available until the new Bark Park opens to the general public in 2022. The new dog park will not require an off-leash permit from the township.

South Fayette Township provides a permit-only Off-Leash Dog Zone within Fairview Park where properly permitted dog owners and handlers may allow their animals to exercise without a leash. (Dogs MUST remain on a leash to and from the designated dog park area.)

Residents and non-residents age 18 years or older may apply to use the Off-Leash Dog Zone. Dogs must be at least 12 weeks old to enter the off-leash zone.

Dog owners/handlers whose animals remain on a leash at all times within the dog park area do not need a permit. The area is open to the public and to those who are not handling dogs, but be aware that off-leash dogs may be present. Everyone enters the Off-Leash Dog Zone at their own risk.
