Yesterday Eko and I had ourselves a tour of Atlanta’s dog parks. Each one was unique, so no matter what kind of park you’re looking for we’ve got you covered.
We started our day with a visit to the Atlantic Station Dog Park, a small but convenient park for locals to let their dogs off-leash. I wouldn’t recommended the park for dogs who like to run, but it is the perfect size area for practicing off leash commands.
One is the loneliest number
Eko needed to stretch his legs, so our next stop was Piedmont Dog Park. As we approached the park, Eko gave me the classic, “Now that’s what I’m talking about!” look, which is always a good indication that he likes what he sees. The park offers plenty of room to run and the place always seems to have a good crowd.

A tired dog is a happy dog
Our last stop was definitely the most unique dog park we have ever visited. Park Grounds in southeast Atlanta is a combination dog park/coffee house. It is certainly not the most natural combination, but it totally works.
I would bet this is the only sign in the entire world that lists these items together
Eko couldn’t believe his good fortune – three parks in one day!
Dogs enjoy their romping while humans enjoy their coffee
If you’re looking for a bite to eat, you can grab lunch or breakfast on the back patio without ever losing sight of your dog. Eko and I have now seen a dog bar and a dog coffee house, so I can only imagine what we’ll find next.
Park Grounds has some great signage too
Today we’re going to explore downtown Atlanta, so if you see a confused looking man with a Ridgeback be sure to say hello.
