Winnebago County Dog Parks

Let your favorite furry friends run free! Winnebago County has two great dog parks where you and your pet can spend some quality off-leash time outdoors. Dog parks play an important role in keeping both pups and people active, healthy, and safe. We hope you enjoy our dog parks.

Located in the Winnebago County Community Park, the Best Friends Dog Park is a 9-acre fenced area in the northeast portion of the Community Park. It provides a safe and secure environment for dog owners to exercise their dogs off-leash. Park users will find ample parking, a walking path, seating and a small dog/puppy area. Clean bag boxes are located around the dog park in case you need an extra bag to clean up after your dog and a dumpster is located near the entrance to accommodate disposal. There is also a porta-potty on site.
