It's Curbed New Orleans' first ever Outdoors Week and we're sniffing out the best place in town to take your pooch to play. Nominate your favorite dog park, dog run, or plain old dog-friendly park by shooting an email our way with a description of what makes it great and why your dog loves it. Do send photos as well and your canine bestie could make the pages of Curbed NOLA. We'll be sharing parks and pics through the rest of the week with voting kicking off on Friday.
The final contestant in the battle for the oh-so-prestigious title of New Orleans' best dog park/run is the Wisner Dog Run at Wisner Park Uptown. The off-leash dog run on Laurel Street opened in late December 2013 and the fenced-in area has drinking fountains for the pups and their humans, plus a couple of benches. One tipster says the dog hangout "is a treat for the neighborhood" and was a good fix for keeping the canines off of the softball fields and away from the playground area. Another reader tells us the place is always hopping, but not overly crowded, and it's a good spot to meet the neighbors while socializing the pooch.
Do you have photos of your dog at the Wisner Park dog run that you'd like to share? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add them to this post.
