See who's hanging out in PETA's dog park today. Sometimes you'll see local dogs having a good time running and playing in the river, and other times—like when many of us gathered to dance for a fundraiser—you'll catch a rare glimpse of fun PETA staff functions! You just never know who or what's going to turn up. So stay tuned and check back often!

"But what if you’re closed?" you ask. We're almost never closed. But if you want to be on the safe side, be sure to call 757-962-8302 to check the status of the dog park and to make sure it's open when you plan to visit.


About PETA's Dog Park

Ever wonder what dogs are dreaming about when their tails start thumping and their toes twitch in the middle of a deep sleep? Playing at the dog park, of course! And PETA has one of the best in the land: the Bea Arthur Dog Park, a 1-acre dog park on the water, complete with a swimming ramp, a pergola for shade and shelter, plants, and trees, right next to PETA's headquarters (501 Front St., Norfolk, VA 23510).

Named after the group's late honorary director, Bea Arthur, the park features a water station, a toy bin, a shaded picnic area, and easy access to the Elizabeth River. Make sure you check out the park's simple rules, which help to ensure safety and fun while playing! Learn more >
