Pets are welcome at Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park - to protect visitors and visiting pets, please refer to the following regulations for appropriate pet decorum.

  • Only Certified Service Pets who are trained to assist persons with disabilities are permitted to enter the following park structures:
    • The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site Visitor Center
    • Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church
    • Historic Fire Station No. 6
    • Martin Luther King, Jr. Birth Home (Temporary closed for renovations)
  • Pets must be on a 6' or shorter leash at all times.
  • Pets may not be left unattended, especially in vehicles.
  • Pets may not make excessive noise.
  • You must clean up and dispose of your pets' fecal matter in an appropriate receptacle.

Exercise Area

We encourage the use of the exercise area located between 521 and 535 Auburn Avenue. The area is not fenced so your pet must remain on a leash at all times. A receptacle is provided for disposing of your pets' fecal matter.

Applicable Regulations

View the specific regulations that apply to pets in national parks at 36 CFR 2.15 and on page 10 of the Superintendent's Compendium for complete details.
