Dog Park Rules 

  1. The success of the dog parks largely depends on the self-monitoring and cooperation of dog owners. Please help keep your park healthy and hospitable by encouraging others through your good example.
  2. You are completely responsible for all injuries and damage caused by your dog.
  3. Dogs that are sick, aggressive, in-heat, without current vaccinations displayed or too young for rabies vaccinations are not allowed.
  4. Pick up the poop! If your dog poops, you must immediately remove the excrement.
  5. Leash your dog until it is safely inside, and return it to leash upon exiting.
  6. Always keep an eye on your dog, and keep voice control to prevent any trouble.
  7. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
  8. Leash your dog whenever you sense problems.
  9. Do not let dogs dig holes. If they do, fill them in immediately.
