Paw Point is a membership-based park in Towson but worth the small fee if you’re ready to become a regular. This park is perfect for the water-loving dog as it features a lake for them to play and swim in. Only the enclosure is members only, so you’re still welcome to walk a leashed dog there for free. One other thing to note is that children under 12 are not allowed in the enclosure.

Another park that features separate enclosures for large and small dogs is Howards Park. This park is most accessible to Downtown Baltimore and is off-leash so your dog is welcome to run and play to their heart’s content.
