K-9 Dog Park, presented by Golf Rose Animal Hospital, is a great place to relax after a ruff day.
Use of the park is open to dogs and owners with a registered membership. To become a member, in-person registration is mandatory, and is not available online, by phone, or mail.
Resident membership is $60 for the first dog, and $10 for each additional dog. Non-resident membership is $110 for the first dog and $20 per additional dog. A maximum of four dogs may be registered by one owner. An additional $10 card fee is payable at time of registration.
Once a member, owners will be issued a key ring that will provide electronic access to the park, and each dog will be issued a tag for its collar.
Registration must be completed in-person at the Community Recreation Center. The registration packet is available here.
Owners must provide proof of current vaccinations for rabies, distemper, hepatitis, bordatella, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus and a negative fecal test. While there are certain vaccines that are required for membership to our dog park, the Canine Influenza vaccine is not required, however, we do encourage owners to become familiar with prevention of this illness. Please enter our Dog Friendly Areas (DFA) at your own risk, including the K-9 Dog Park. Learn more about the disease here.
