Due to COVID-19 there are reduced amenities and additional rules to follow at the dog park. Please review them in full before visiting. Failure to abide by these rules may result in the dog park being closed.
- Balls - To reduce the number of commonly touched areas at the park we have removed the toy bins. Please bring your own balls/toys to the park with you.
- Porta-potty - We will NOT have a porta-potty at the dog park this year. Please "go" before you come.
- Water - There will be NO WATER or water bowls accessible. Please bring your own water and bowl with you to the park, and take any empty containers with you when you leave.
- Poop - Waste receptacles inside the dog park are closed. You will need to bag up your dogs' poop and carry it out to the parking lot to deposit it directly into the Casella bin.
- No more than 10 people are allowed in each park area at a time (Small Park, Large Park, and Ingrid's Park).
- Social distancing must be observed at all times. Please maintain at least 6 feet between you and other people while at the park.

- We strongly recommend bringing and using hand sanitizer after your visits.

In preparation of your first trip to the park, especially if you're a dog-park-newbie, please review our rules and regulations (below).
Our park is self-regulating. Though there will often be a Park Ambassador on site to answer questions and give advice, we don't have 'staff' present at all times, so it is up to all park users to make sure that the rules are upheld in order to maintain a safe and fun environment for all.
Park Ambassadors are volunteers who have been significantly involved in the development and maintenance of the park, and are familiar with basic dog park etiquette for both dogs and people. They are there to answer any questions you might have regarding park rules or appropriate dog behavior and to ensure that the rules are upheld. They may also offer advice or intervene in a situation that arises; many of them have more extensive knowledge of dog body language and behavior.
Park Ambassadors wear name tags when at the park to identify themselves. If you are interested in becoming a Park Ambassador, please reach out to us via email or on Facebook.
We also highly recommend watching the YouTube series "At the dog park" by Sue Sternberg. Sue highlights common behaviors and gives tips on how to read dog body language.
