Our Dog Parks are enter at your own risk.

Due to the popularity of RT 100 Dog Park and excessive wear and tear, the large fenced area is closed.  Currently, only the small fenced area is open to all dogs.

We are also in the planning stages of opening another Dog Park at Grange Park to meet the needs of the growing demand.
