The Downtown Development District through Southwest Airlines Heart of the Community Grant, in partnership with Arts Council New Orleans and support from Project for Public Spaces have made investments in infrastructure and enhancements to one of our largest Downtown greenspaces. With great programming, the new community dog park and new reasons to hang out, it’s time to reintroduce yourself to Duncan Plaza!
Duncan Dog Park
Downtown NOLA’s only off leash dog run is open daily from 6:30am – 9:00pm in Duncan Plaza! The double gated fence, bistro garden lights and adirondack chairs make for a great Downton spot for canine residents and their owners. Monthly meetups happen every Second Saturday of the month at 2:00pm!
May 11, we’re partnering with the LASPCA to provide training for you and your pup! Learn how to communicate with your dog via reward-based methods that are fun for all learners – dogs and human alike! We will also play name games teaching recall, learn leash-walking tips to combat pulling, and more fun tricks for your dog!
