Pet Policy:

In 1997, the Town of Henrietta instituted a “No Pets” ordinance for Tinker Nature Park, which includes all trails and property. This restriction applies to all dogs, and all pets, leashed or not.

By their very nature, dogs are a threat to wildlife. They leave behind traces of their presence that causes wildlife to take cover or leave the area. This greatly reduces the opportunity for observation and diminishes the value of our trails and natural areas. Dogs may also be a threat to persons on our trails, and it is our aim to provide a safe recreational and educational experience for everyone.

Tinker Nature Park’s mission is "to provide year-round environmental education and recreation opportunities through the utilization and protection of the natural and cultural attributes of the park.” In order to achieve this goal we try to provide an opportunity for “observation, recreation, and research, and in connection therewith, to serve as stewards of the park.”

Feeding Policy:

We ask that all visitors to the park NOT to feed the deer. It is not necessary for their well being and it encourages unnatural behavior.
