When planning your visit it’s useful to know that your four-legged friends can’t be walked in areas off the route or taken onto the memorials. They must also remain on their lead throughout your visit.
The pathways on the dog walking route are largely hard-standing and access friendly, though there is the option to walk through some grassed areas, you can see the route on the map below.
Working assistance dogs are permitted in all areas of the Arboretum.
Until further notice access onto our grounds for dog walkers is via the Remembrance Centre.
Our annual Paws for Remembrance fundraising event is held annually and is for dogs and their owners, it’s an Arboretum team favourite. With special stalls selling pet related products and treats the event gives dog owners the chance to explore more of our grounds than normal. At past events, thanks to our friends at the PDSA, we’ve also offered special activities include free dog health checks and pet first aid classes.
