City of Meridian Dog Park

This petition had 590 supporters

Mission Statement:

  • To establish a fenced-in, off leash area where Meridian’s animal loving taxpayers can let their dogs play without endangering or aggravating other people, property or wildlife;
  • to develop a beautiful, well-maintained space open to all Meridian-area citizens and canine lovers who are willing to uphold the park’s rules and restrictions;
  • And to promote responsible dog ownership in the community through socialization, recreational and educational opportunities



Dog parks are part of the fabric of several communities in America and Mississippi. However, there are no public dog parks anywhere within a 60-minute drive of Meridian! The large number and success of dog parks all over the country demonstrate that when a group of concerned and responsible dog owners work together for a leash-free dog park, not only can this concept work but it can thrive and enrich the community. Anecdotal research also shows that property values near dog parks increases, sometimes significantly!
