Nutro Dog Park

The Town partnered with Mars Petcare and Outdoor Encounter in 2014 to build a beautiful dog park in the heart of Thompson's Station.  Enjoy the Greenway Trails that lead all the way north to Tollgate Village and south to Preservation Park. With four (4) acres of space and two (2) areas for large and small dogs, our Town's dog park is large enough to wear out even the most energetic pups.


The entrance is labeled and visible from the intersection of Columbia Pike and Critz Lane. The road leading back to the park is a single lane road - please use caution.
