Parks and Recreation exists to promote a wholesome, affordable and valuable recreation program for people of all ages and all abilities. The benefits of recreation are designed to meet the physical, mental, cultural, and social needs of our community and visitors, while enhancing the overall quality of life in Hartsville. Parks and Recreation also works in conjunction with Hartsville Area Recreation to provide well-rounded opportunities for athletic, non-athletic, and senior citizen programs. Funded by Darlington County and the City of Hartsville, Hartsville Area Recreation offers opportunities and special events throughout the entire year. Parks and Leisure Services is also responsible for the Hartsville Airport and city cemeteries.

Rules & Helpful Hints

All dogs must be current on all vaccinations for entry into the event: rabies, distemper, parvo virus, and Bordetella.

Prior to entering Piratesville, please walk your dog to help him/her relieve themselves, and be sure to pick up any waste.

Waste bags will be available. We would like to avoid accidents on the pad as much as possible.

Your dog may be released from the leash upon entering Piratesville.

Please do not trim your dog’s nails prior to attending Dog Day Afternoon. Dogs will be running on the concrete area and nails will wear down quickly. If they are too short coming in, they may hurt their feet.

Your dog must remain under your control at all times. Please be aware of where your dog is at all times.

Be courteous to other guests. Manage your dog, and clean up as necessary.

Female dogs in season are not allowed. No puppies under 6 months of age are allowed.

Outside food and drink (dog and human) is not allowed. Concessions will be avail- able for human visitors, but must be eaten in the concessions area. Fresh water will be available for dogs throughout.
