Fitzsimmons Family Dog Park

Divided into two sections: Large Breed (1.35 acres) and Small Breed (.65 acres). Each with its own water and waste stations, walking trail and benches.

The Ohio Valley’s first dog park is located at the Tunnel Green Recreation Complex, an established City recreational area that offers sites for recreational baseball and roller hockey. The dog park sits on the wooded lot south of the existing ball field and roller hockey rink and will become part of the City of Wheeling’s park system. The site has vehicular access from 18th Street and pedestrian access from the trail, along with adequate parking.
Rules of Engagement
Park signage: the required vaccinations and licenses, etiquette regarding how dogs (and owners) should interact, as well as behaviors to watch for to ward off potential issues among the dogs.
