About Wilmington Dog Park at Empie – Wilmington, NC

Wilmington Dog Park at Empie is the first functional off-leash dog park in Wilmington. The park is incorporated into a 2-acre site of unused land within the confines of Empie Park. The park is completely fenced in with two play areas — one for large dogs and another dog dogs under 20 pounds. There is also water, pet waste stations, and lots of shade. Located on the corner of Independence and Park Ave, Behind Steinmart.


The City of Wilmington’s Recreation, & Downtown Services Division along with the Wilmington Dog Park Committee have joined together to implement Wilmington’s first off- leash dog park. Without the dedication and fundraising of the Wilmington Dog Park Committee, this park would not have come to fruition.



  • Completely Fenced In
  • Large Dog & Small Dog areas
  • Play Areas
  • Water and Pet Waste Stations
  • Lots of Shade
  • Free
  • Open Dawn to Dusk


These specific rules apply to the City of Wilmington Dog Park at Empie Park but are great rules to apply to any dog park for the safety and enjoyment of the puppies and their owners.
