PERMANENT DOG PARK PLANS APPROVED!
DDAWG (Dartmouth Dog Advisory Work Group) is excited to announce that the plans for the Off Leash Recreation Area (OLRA) commonly referred to as the “Permanent Dog Park” were unanimously approved at the January 24, 2023, Dartmouth Conservation Commission Meeting!
The effort began back in 2014 to bring a regional dog park to Dartmouth. Early efforts to partner with the Stanton Foundation were unsuccessful. The Town and the Department of Parks and Recreation provided a temporary site in the Dartmouth Regional Parks and Trails Facility located at 443 Old Fall River Rd. DDAWG volunteers have been monitoring and maintaining the temporary park since it opened in June of 2017.
Town officials continued to believe in this project and persevered. With continued support from Parks and Recreation, the Town’s Development Office, and especially the CPC (Conservation Preservation Commission), the OLRA is about to become a reality. DDAWG successfully completed their fundraising campaign and raised $15,000 to contribute towards the project.
It will be a very busy year at the DRP+T’s facility with a new accessible children’s playground being built and construction of the new dog park!

WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT ALL OF YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION AND SUPPORT OF OUR FUNDRAISERS THROUGHOUT THE PAST FEW YEARS!
With sincere gratitude, the DDAWG Board of Directors 🐾❤️
