Service animals play an important role for many students with all types of disabilities. Service animals offer their owners significant emotional and physical support, as well as an additional level of mobility and access to daily living activities.
Nationally recognized for its commitment to students with disabilities, Wright State University was one of the first universities in the country to offer an on-campus dog park reserved for service animals.
Located on Wright State’s Dayton campus, Wingerd Service Dog Park offers a full acre of accessible, fenced exercise space near the academic buildings and residence halls. The park features:
- one acre of accessible, fenced green space
- convenient location near academic buildings and residence halls
- paved accessible paths
- double-gated entrance
- electric gate openers
- water station
- waste disposal stations
- emergency response phone
- covered patio area
More improvements are planned for the near future, including:
- dog agility training equipment
- non-toxic flower beds & landscaping
