Managed by the Green Tree Borough and opened in the summer of 2006, Green Tree Borough Dog Park requires users to complete an application and obtain a key to the facility, which also requires a deposit of $20. For now, the park only caters to Green Tree residents. Although not as big as the other parks in the area and only open to residents, there are about only three to four dogs at a time which is a good thing for people who do not like crowds.
Green Tree Park is a well-kept public park with a grassy field for children and people to play, picnic, or practice on. There is also a street hockey rink, a fenced-in playground for kids, walking paths around the field, and a spacious parking lot so you don’t have to worry if you are ever bringing a car. In addition, there are both football and baseball fields where local youth teams have their practices.
The park also holds a Farmers Market in the summer and fall as part of the city-wide strategy to provide fresh produce and local products to residents. There is so much to do for pets, their owners, and the general public. The park has designated locations where waste can be deposited, and all dog owners are expected to follow the rules and do their part in maintaining the park’s cleanliness.
Owners must accompany their dogs, and their leash must be easily seen at all times. The Green Tree Park prohibits aggressive dogs, dogs in heat, and pit bulls in the premises. Dog owners must always be in verbal control at all times to prevent biting, fighting, excessive barking and any form of aggressive behavior. Dogs must also be appropriately licensed and up to date on their vaccinations if they want to enjoy the park.
