Pets may be walked in designated areas of the park while on a leash that does not exceed six (6) feet in length. Pets are not permitted in the Family Cemetery and the fenced yard of the Lower House. Leaving a pet unattended and tied to an object at any time is prohibited.
Pets are not permitted in any of the buildings or historic structures on site, including the Visitor Contact Station. Service animals are welcome inside buildings. For a definition of a service animal, please see the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition.
Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets. Garbage cans are available throughout the park for disposal of pet waste. It is unlawful to abandon waste bags in the park. Please bring your own supplies as the park is not responsible for providing clean up bags to visitors.
It is unlawful to allow pets to harass and/or chase the wildlife. Please maintain control of your pet and keep a safe distance from any other animals in your general area at all times.
Please be mindful of weather conditions when bringing your pet to the park. Extremes in hot and cold tempatures can sometimes be harmful to pets. Water fountains are available throughout the park but visitors should bring their own containers in order to provide water to their pets.
If you see an unattended pet please notify park staff immediately.
