Our Mission:

 To establish a fenced in, off-leash dog park where well-behaved canine citizens can exercise in a clean, safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property or wildlife. To develop a beautiful, well-maintained space open to all dog lovers and friends who are willing to uphold the park?s rules and restrictions. To view this park as a community project, in partnership with the Town of Orange, designed to satisfy the needs of dog-owners and non-dog owners alike. To promote education, training and recreational activities that facilitate responsible dog ownership and better-behaved dogs through the use of volunteers and professional dog trainers.  

About Our Park:

 The North Quabbin Dog Park features three separate fenced-in areas designed for open play for big dogs, small dogs, and training/agility/function space.  The park is open to everyone who is willing to follow our rules and guidelines for park use, with no user fee.  Dog waste clean-up stations and trash cans are available at the park--however, there is no designated park custodian, so it is up to park patrons to clean up after themselves and their pets.  Parking close to the park gates is available, and each play section has a "Kids Zone" area where younger children may wait and play in sight of their parents.  (Please note that adults must accompany dogs inside the fence--please plan accordingly if traveling with children! Children under 8 are NOT permitted inside the dog fence!)  There is no electricity, running water, or restrooms at the park, so please plan accordingly.

NEW!  We have a new handbook with lots of great information for park patrons!  Check it out and share with your friends! HAND BOOK

Please check back in the future to hear about upcoming events, including training activities and fundraisers!  Visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/FriendsOfNQDP for current information and chat about the park!
