Canine Meadows is a 13.5-acre dog park located on the grounds of John Rudy Park in York, Pennsylvania. Placing 20th on Dog Fancy magazine's list of Best Dog Parks in the Nation, Canine Meadows is an idyllic playground oasis for dogs and their owners to enjoy. The dog park itself consists of three fenced play sections where dogs can roughhouse, run, and play without the need for a leash.
A dog facility dedicated to providing play areas to meet the needs of all dogs visiting the premises, one of the enclosures is reserved for use by large dogs with another designated for small dogs to enjoy. Though Canine Meadows welcomes off-leash activity in their dog runs, owners are asked to observe best safety practices by keeping a lead handy. Canine Meadows is open to the public free of charge.
This dedicated dog facility, supported by the donations and maintenance efforts of the Friends of Canine Meadows, has ensured the park is well-equipped with all of the necessary things for a great day. Included in the play areas is water suitable for drinking and poop bags for the cleaning up of all canine waste. Benches are also available in areas with large shade trees to keep families cool while their dogs enjoy some play time.
John Rudy Park, which is housed on 150 acres of land, also has much to offer Fido and his family. An ideal spot for active families, this park offers the following amenities: picnic pavilions, horseshoes, bathrooms, volleyball, a BMX bike track, trails intended for cross country running, open grassy areas, and a lush garden. Fido is welcome to join his family in all areas of John Rudy Park; however, he must remain leashed.
Canine Meadows has instituted a few rules owners must abide by to enjoy this public park space. Visible proof of a current city license and appropriate vaccinations must be worn on your dog's collar. Current identification tags are also required. Flat collars are the only style of collar permitted in the play areas. Additionally, Canine Meadows prohibits food and cigarettes on the premises. For a great space to enjoy a good run, bring Fido for a visit to Canine Meadows!
