Here, a gentler play style is encouraged to prevent accident or injury. Off-leash playtime is the focus of this beautiful park; however, to ensure the safety of all dogs, it is required that all dogs have ready access to a lead. Though dogs are permitted to run freely in the play spaces designed for their use, they must remain on a leash in all other areas of the park.
Canton Dog Park is a public dog playground. Entrance to the facility is open to the public free of charge. The play areas themselves offer benches in areas with excellent shade cover to encourage owners to take some time to relax and enjoy viewing their dogs having a good time in the runs.
Also on the premises is water access which allows Fido and the whole family to quench their thirst when needed. Poop bags are provided, and as a display of responsible dog ownership, owners are requested to promptly clean up after their pets. This ensures the dog playground remains a clean and attractive haven for all to enjoy. Bathrooms are not housed on the grounds for public use.
A notice board at the entrance to the park outlines all park rules as well as any upcoming events. Donations are gratefully accepted and put towards park maintenance and improvements. Visitors to Canton Dog Park remark that the grounds are both spacious and very clean.
As an added bonus, there is a dog-friendly bar directly next to the park where your dog can sit with you on the outdoor patio area. Though there are very few rules governing the use of this park space, a city dog license is required and up to date vaccinations are recommended. For a day of fun at a great Baltimore park, plan to stop by Canton Dog Park!
