Though Fala may be the most famous dog associated with our parks, Franklin and Eleanor and Frederick and Louise shared their homes with various dogs. Help use maintain the tradition by bringing yours to our grounds while remembering that federal regulations require that they be leashed at all times and that you clean up after them. As always, only service animals are permitted inside the historic structures. Happy walking!
