This is a great dog park. Has both grassy and non-grassy areas. Lots of shade. One of the good benefits is that all pet parents are attentive, so it is a good experience for dog and human alike.

Pretty great dog park with big dog, small dog, and extra areas. Water is available during warmer months and there is a kiddie pool on the big dog side. Could really use lights for the evening. Also rules aren’t enforced by a park official or anything unless you call the durham parks and rec dept. So sometimes people with young kids or aggressive dogs come to the park.

I have only visited Piney Wood for the dog park, but it is a great one! The dog park has a very large fenced in area for big dogs. They have a ton of water jugs you can fill up and faucets to do so, as well as a kiddie pool full of water for your dog to play in (or clean off in). There grassy areas and sandy areas, and ample dog cleanup stations too. Overall, everything you need!

It's really fun even for older kids like me. I also really like the forest area around it, which you can go in. There are some teepee things made of sticks that are cool to look at but aren't necessarily very strong so don't go in them

We found this park kind of by accident, but what a great find! I had gone to Perkins Orchard then looked in maps for a nearby park to take the kids and this popped up. It's a fun little park with lots of shade! It's next to a dog park as well so my kids were excited to see the dogs go by and watch them play. There's also some picnic tables and benches so it would be a great place for a lunch outing. Next time I'm over in Durham I'll definitely be back to this nice little spot!

Piney Wood has a lovely dog park. The dog park is huge with areas for both under 30 and above 30 pound dogs. The park has lots of tennis balls, nice shade from tall trees, and water stations for dogs to drink and play. All the other dogs and owners I have met here have been very nice and friendly.

I like to watch the dogs at the dog park while I'm at the playground.

The playground is very nice, my 3 year old absolutely loved it! The bathrooms were typical park bathrooms, they work in a pinch but definitely try to avoid them if possible. Not much info about the dog park bc we don't have a dog but looked like a nice fenced in dog area with different areas for different sized dogs.

Shelter was clean, however the bathroom was in need of cleaning. No paper towel or trash bin. Did have soap dispenser and running water.

great small, medium and big dog park. atmosphere is calm.
The ground is sandy so it dries quick after a rain.

Best dog park have ever been to! Lots of shade, benches for humans, fresh water and bowls and other great dog amenities. Nice bunch of local dog owners (we were passing) through. Dogs and humans all had fun!

really HUGE park, a little confusing to navigate your first time. The sandbox is really fun!!!
there is no hose/fountain so water is a bit scarce though.

Everyone has control of their pets and is super friendly. Park is huge and your dog will love it! Nanaki enjoyed it but she's a bit shy so I'm sure by our second trip shell be running all over with the other dogs.
