WEB EXCLUSIVE Dorothea Dix Park’s The Oak Room is perfect for kiddos and dogs alike.
Before we know it, summer will be over (time flies when you’re having fun in the sun!), so take advantage of the warm weather and the kiddos being out of school by spending some quality time outdoors—with your pup, if you have one!
Lucky for us, Raleigh is home to a plethora of beautiful green spaces that make getting outside a breeze, and your doggo surely could use a day out to stretch its legs. Dorothea Dix Park—recently dubbed the Central Park of the South by Travel and Leisure Magazine—is the perf locale for any occasion: charcuterie with the squad, a family picnic or an afternoon of fetch with the dog!
And hanging out at Dix just got a whole lot brighter with the recently debuted Oak Room, located right next to Harvey Hill, Dix Park’s new go-to spot for families and dog owners alike. While the kiddos are hanging out on the swings and Fido runs free, relax on the benches or the bench swing, and pack a picnic lunch to enjoy under the shady picnic tables (a great way to cool off and refuel during a day of play). Water fountains designed with both water bottle and dog-drinking capabilities will keep you and your furry friends hydrated all day long. This hidden gem will no doubt become a crowd fave this summer when it comes to beating the heat while soaking up some sun!
