The Black Hill Regional Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Boyds, Maryland. This dog park is half an acre of the two thousand acre Black Hill Regional Park which is popular with residents and visitors to Boyd for its nature trails and lake. It is possible to park vehicles along the side of the road next to the dog park which is known as Picnic Lane.
While the recreational park has lots of open countryside, woodlands, and the lakeside where dogs are welcome if they are kept on their leashes, they are only allowed to be off their leashes when in the specified off-leash area. The Black Hill Regional Dog Park in Boyd is in a really well-chosen spot as there are lots of mature trees which make it nice and shady.
The off-leash area has a covering of small grade gravel and is fenced with chain-link. There is a gated staging area which means it's possible to leash and unleash pups without worrying about them escaping and disappearing into the woods. This dog park does not have an individual zone for small breeds, so owners exercising dogs of diminutive stature need to keep a close eye on them.
Pet owners using the Black Hill Regional Dog Park have been well provided for as there are lots of benches under the trees and also several solidly constructed wooden pavilions. The one thing this dog park is missing is a supply of fresh water for the dogs, so it is essential for owners to carry a jug of water with them or in their vehicle.
There are some drinking bowls at Black Hill Regional Dog Park, but it is always better to take a dog's personal bowl as this helps prevent the spread of infections. There are usually poop bags in the dog park, but there is no harm in carrying a few extra and all pup poop has to be removed as soon as it has been deposited.
