Please remember...

To be attentive to your dog(s) when visiting the park. Try not to conduct lengthy cell phone conversations;  watch your dog when walking around the Park if the dog isn’t joining you; clean up after your dog; and please do not bring people food to the park!

Many dogs are leash reactive, lunging and barking at other dogs when on-leash. This park is an off-leash park, however, we recognize that dogs do need to be leashed from time to time, especially when entering and exiting. Please keep this in mind when visiting the park.

Save the Date!

June 13, 9:00 AM  - 12:00 PM for a work day. The mud should be gone, and we will be beautifying the park for summer. Please come help! Bring a shovel, rake or wheelbarrow, if you have one. The dog park will be closed to dogs during this time.

Poop Patrol Help Needed

One of the aspects of the park that makes it so great is the cleanliness. In order to keep our park clean, weare always looking for volunteers to donate 10 minutes of their time each week to change the bags in the 3 poop containers. 

Please contact Carol at or 324-4457 if you can commit to doing this one day per week.

Dogs Rule and These are Our Rules

While Inside the Dog Park:
  • We must be accompanied by an adult.
  • We must have valid license & vaccination tags.
  • We must not be aggressive or a nuisance.
  • We must not be in heat.
  • We must be older than 16 weeks.
  • You must be over 12 or accompanied by an adult.
  • You must maintain control over us.
  • You must clean up after us.
  • You must not use glass, food, alcohol or smoke.

Best Practices

Here’s a list of best practice behaviors while in the park:
  • Always supervise your dog
  • Clean up after your dog and any other poop you happen to come upon
  • Remove your dog immediately if she’s playing too rough (Depending on the situation, you can try and take your dog to the other end of the park for a short break then bring her back for another chance to play nicely.)
  • Take your dog out of the park if he’s intimidating other dogs and/or people (Figuring out if your dog is being intimidating can be challenging. A good idea is to ask the people around you if they think your dog is being too forceful. We all need to be sensitive to the feelings of other dog owners.)
  • Correct your dog if she jumps on someone and please apologize to the human who now has paw prints on her clothes (Dogs can be messy - we shouldn’t expect to leave the dog park in the exact condition we were when we arrived.)
  • Try and give the dogs plenty of room if they are being rambunctious to avoid being knocked over
