Was heading to Memphis and found that they just opened their first dog park on June 5th.  According to the Parks and Recreation department this park is a "trial" to test the popularity.  See below the local Fox 13 TV report video on this dog park.

 

We visited this dog park twice while in town and the Memphis Parks and Recreation should have the answer.  This is a well visited dog park.  Our first visit was a Monday evening about 7pm.  There were about 40 dogs when we arrived.  Given the number of dogs, the atmosphere was fun and for the most part congenial.  There were a couple dog personality conflicts and towards the end of our 45 minute visit was one dog that was getting a little too aggressive and started a fracas that had to be separated.  The humans just let this one go too far.

 

Our next visit was 2 days later on Wednesday at about 6:30pm.  The crowd was smaller.  On average there were 20-25 dogs in the park at a time.

 

Both visits found the small dog area with only about 6-8 small dogs; most small dogs were enjoying the large dog area.

 

The Memphis human companions were very friendly all very happy to finally have a place to let their dogs run and socialize. 

 

The large dog area is an acre.  The small dog area 1/2 acre.  There is no water, but most everyone brings a bucket with ice and water.
