"We at PetSafe hope you enjoy PetSafe Park. This is our private property, which we are donating for use to the public. No government funds were used to build it and we are privately paying to maintain it. Please help us keep it clean and if you have any ideas for improvements, share them with us next door at the PetSafe Village. Enjoy."

- Randy Boyd, President, PetSafe

Dog Park

In order to guarantee the safety of patrons and dogs who visit the PetSafe Way Dog Park our policy will be to close the park whenever there is a buildup of ice on the pond inside the park. This policy is necessary in order to eliminate the possibility of a patron or a dog from falling through the ice.

PetSafe introduced the first public dog park to Knoxville. The main park includes the following people- and pet-friendly features:

  • A natural pond
  • Park benches
  • Picnic tables
  • Walking trails
  • Doggie water fountain
  • Waste bags and receptacles
  • Fun for the whole family
