Johnston County Parks and Open Space is dedicated to providing options for all of our resident's pets. Currently, the county has three dog parks:

  1. East Clayton Dog Park
  2. Smithfield Dog Park
  3. Benson Dog Park

All three of these locations offer a large space for dogs of all sizes. Each location is split into a small dog and a large dog run.

Though these are official park listings for dogs, all parks in Johnston County allow dogs to visit, as long as they are leashed. Greenways and park tracks are a great place to take your pets, whether its a dog, cat, bird, etc.
