Dog Parks

As of December 1, 2016, all dog park water fountains have been turned off and winterized to prevent water pipes from freezing and damaging the fountains. During this time, please bring your own water for your pet. Dog park water fountains will be de-winterized next spring when the threat of freezing temperatures has passed.

 Using the Parks

When dog owners follow the guidelines, everyone’s enjoyment of the dog parks is enhanced. Therefore, we need to work together to preserve space for both our dogs and our citizens.
  • ​Dog owners will be liable for the full value of any park property damaged or destroyed by their dogs.
  • Please be a responsible dog owner and support our dog park guidelines.
  • Dog owners are required to license their dogs and have documented expiration date of dog's rabies vaccination (rabies certificate) with them upon registration. We strongly recommend that dogs receive the Parvo vaccination. Out-of-town visitors are asked to show rabies tag when registering with the park office; a locality license is not required.
  • Park staff will monitor and spot check usage, licenses, and compliance with dog park guidelines. Animal Control will ensure compliance with city ordinances.
