A maximum of 10 people are allowed in the dog park.  Since there are only 10 people allowed inside at a time, people are asked to limit their time so as to not keep others waiting, if applicable.

Everyone should maintain social distancing and stay at least six feet apart.

We ask all members visiting the dog park, be able to control their dogs with voice commands in order to help to comply with social distancing guidelines.

The water has been turned on.

No dog toys will be allowed.

Please clean – up after your dog.

A hand sanitizer station will be provided.  Most importantly, have fun!
