About Dog Parks

How are Dog Parks funded?

The land for Dog Parks is usually publicly owned land designated for that purpose, land donated by a private entity, or land purchased by a non-profit or citizens organization. Construction of fencing and other startup costs is usually funded through private fundraising efforts. The costs of operation and ongoing maintenance are typically funded through a combination of non-profit or citizen's group efforts and the county or local government.

Who may use a Dog Park?

Dog Parks are similar to other public parks in that they are usually open to the general public at no charge. Some Dog Parks require registration and verification of a dog's license in order to use the park, and others may charge a fee.

Are Dog Parks supervised?

Very few Dog Parks are supervised. In most cases, users are expected to police themselves to enforce the rules of the park. For situations where self-policing is insufficient, park users are often advised to contact Animal Control or the Police.
