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
  4. Wilson's Mills Dog Park (Future)

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 parks are great places to take your pets, whether it's a dog, cat, bird, etc.
