Dog Park

With over 2,000 licensed dogs in town, local dog lovers raised the needs funds to build the town's first dog park which opened in May, 2011. The dog park is a fenced-in area where dogs can run and socialize off-leash legally and safely. A separate area for small dogs is also included. Some of the park amenities include benches, waste receptacles, dog litter bags, water stations and more! 

The Glastonbury Dog Park has benefits including:

  • A safe and controlled environment for dogs to play and exercise
  • A well-shaded designated off-leash area for dogs and dog owners to socialize with each other
  • Encouraging responsible dog ownership by promoting licensing, vaccinations and clean up

Special thanks to the staff of the Engineering, Highway and Parks and Recreation Departments for their efforts and good work on the project. Special thanks are also due to all of the local tree contractors who delivered over 1,500 cubic yard of wood chips for the project.

For those of you that are considering charitable giving, please consider a gift to the Glastonbury Dog Park. Donations will help finish the project and be used to fund its ongoing maintenance and operation. Contributions can be mailed to Glastonbury Dog Park, c/o Glastonbury Parks and Recreation Department, Box 997, Glastonbury, CT 06033
