Founded completely on the donations and generous gifts of local businesses and community volunteers, this dog play haven boasts of two fully fenced areas where dogs can engage in off-leash exercise and proper socialization, two important aspects of every well-rounded canine's daily life.
Off-leash activity is part of the vision of the Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park; however, off-leash play and safety must go hand in hand. Owners are asked to do their part to ensure the well-being of all dogs using the play areas by keeping a leash with them at all times.
The Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park is a community facility. All canines and their humans are welcome to enjoy the on-site dog runs at no cost. Since the park operates purely on monetary gifts, donations are gratefully accepted and earmarked for ongoing maintenance and park improvements.
The dog runs at Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park are well-equipped with water and poop bags. It is the dog owners' job to clean up after their pets. Bathrooms are located on the grounds for public use. The Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park gratefully acknowledges the generosity of their donors; J.P. Mascaro and Sons and the Mascaro family, Wanner Gardens of Douglassville, and Schmehl's Lawn Service.
Their kind gifts of land, funds, services, and products were instrumental in the founding and continuance of this beloved dog play space. The staff of the dog park encourages all visitors to support these local businesses. Visitors to this public dog playground note that the grounds are kept meticulously clean. The Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park requires all dogs visiting their play areas to be current on vaccinations and in possession of a city dog license.
Both must be clearly evidenced via tags on your dog's collar. In addition to this, food is strictly prohibited in the dog runs as are prong, choke, spike, or pinch collars. The Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park also observes a zero tolerance policy for foul language. For a day of fun in a great dog park, bring Fido for a run at the Danielle Ruiz Murphy Center Dog Park!
