About the Dog Park

Giles Automotive Family Small Dog Park

The Giles Small Dog Park is located in Moncus Park, a 100-acre urban park in the heart of Lafayette.  This Dog Park provides a safe and pleasant gathering place for humans and their canine companions to socialize, exercise, and meet people who share a common interest in dogs and animal welfare!

Dog Park Ambassadors help Moncus Park and the Acadiana community of dog lovers keep Giles Small Dog Park a happy, healthy, and safe space for dogs and their owners to relax and enjoy. Apply with the link above! This valuable opportunity includes: 

  • Welcoming and greeting users of the Dog Park
  • Monitoring Dog Park guests and their furry companions
  • Facilitating a fun and enjoyable environment in the Dog Park
  • Educating, informing, and advocating for Moncus Park
If you are passionate about dogs and want to contribute to this asset for the dog loving community, consider volunteering your time as a Dog Park Ambassador! Please reach out to Rebecca Owens if you have any questions.

This dog park is generously sponsored by Giles Automotive and the Giles Family.


**The Dog Park Expansion, the Large Dog Run, is currently in its final design phase! We can’t wait to bring this new feature to Moncus Park!
