The Tri-City Dog Park Society was founded to promote, establish and maintain off-leash dog parks in our community. Since 2005 we've raised community awareness of dog parks, held demonstration dog parks, and raised funds to help open the first dog park in the Tri-Cities area. We worked with the City of Richland Parks and Recreation Department to open a 1/2 acre temporary dog park located at Badger Mountain Community Park. The permanent dog park was opened in October 2011, also located at Badger Mountain Community Park. We continue to work with the city on issues of rules, expanding the dog park, and other issues.
