Off-Leash Dog Park Rules and Regulations
This one-acre, fenced dog park was built in 2008. It is distinctive because it is a part of a larger park facility, which includes a playground, picnic shelters and athletic fields. This allows users to recreate with all members of the family, including the family pooch. Doggie exercise/play pieces were funded by a Neighborhood Enhancement Grant. This dog park has a very loyal following who enjoy the location and amenities.
It is important that dogs are under voice command at all times. The size of the park allows dogs to run, fetch and play. If you bring young children to the park, please be aware of the jumping, bounding nature of off-leash dogs.
The rules and regulations of the off-leash dog park are designed to protect your dog and respect other users.
