The Canton Dog Park will once again host its annual free “Bark in the Park” event Sunday, May 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees and their dogs can enjoy live entertainment, shopping and prize pack give-a-ways while learning about and trying Canton’s off-leash Dog Park, located on Denton Road, north of Cherry Hill Road.
“This annual event is the perfect opportunity for dog owners to come and try out the Canton Dog Park for free,” said Recreation Specialist Laura Mortier. “Plus, it’s a great chance to meet other local dog owners, get some great information and coupons, and give your canine companion a great tail-wagging experience!”
No Dog Park membership is required to take part in this free event. In order to attend this event, those who are currently not a member of the Canton Dog Park must present a valid Canton dog license, which can be obtained at the Canton Clerk’s Office for $10, as well as valid proof of your dog’s up-to-date distemper and rabies vaccinations, signed by an accredited veterinarian. No pre-registration is required for this event.
The Canton Dog Park has six acres of fenced-in, outdoor space for dogs to run and play off-leash, with specific rules to help ensure a safe and positive experience for everyone. The park is divided into a large dog section for animals over 20 pounds, and small dog section for animals under 20 pounds. Annual memberships for the Dog Park are $25 for Canton residents and $50 for non-residents.
