Winnemac Park
Dog Friendly Area

Do you love dogs?
Winnemac Park?
So do we.

Imagine a space where:

  • Dogs can safely run and play, without bothering other park visitors

  • Everyone is welcome and included, dog owners and non-dog owners alike

  • We reduce our dog's impact on the surrounding environment, and ensure our park remains a beautiful and healthy place for all!

We are in the early stages of developing a Dog Friendly Area in Winnemac Park. Join us!

Get Involved

We need you... here are four ways you can get involved:

  1. Join the DFA Committee, with levels of involvements ranging from optional quarterly meetings and volunteer days, to weekly contributions.
