Off-Leash Dog Park

The Village's off-leash dog park is located at the intersection of 8th Street and Veterans Avenue just south of the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The area is approximately 1520 square meters and is enclosed by a 4 foot tall chain length fence with gate entry.  The park features animal waste disposal bags and garbage receptacles for use by patrons of the park.  Hours of operation are from 7 AM to 10 PM daily.

 

The park is intended for leash free dog exercise and is large enough to accommodate a number of dogs at any given time.  It is every dog owner's responsibility to be proactive in mitigating any potential conflicts between dogs while using the park.
