Dog Park, Petting Zoo at Reston Town Center This Summer

 Coming soon to Reston Town Center: doggie playtime — as well as a few bunnies, lambs and other farm animals.

Reston Town Center will host special animal-focused events on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this summer. The animals will be fenced off in the pavilion.

Here’s what’s happening:

Dog Days of Summer, Wednesdays,  July 6-Sept. 29, 4 to 7 p.m.

Dogs and owners can frolic in the RTC Pavilion as it is transformed into an off-leash play area. There will be treats, toys, areas to cool off, pet-friendly giveaways, and more. Free. Rain or Shine.

Zoosday, Tuesdays, July 5 through Sept. 27, 4 to 7 p.m.

Enjoy an award-winning animal and miniature animal petting zoo with hands-on, educational experiences. There will be kid-friendly giveaways plus activities like Legos and Play-Doh. Free. Rain or shine.
