Calling all canine explorers! The Harford Park Off-Leash Area is just the spot for your rough adventurer! Spread over 30-acres, the fields, hills and tall trees of Harford Park make it a delightful place for people and pups!
To find the 5-acre off leash area, head to the Creutzburg Center that hosts several community classes. Park in the southern parking area where you'll see the off leash area to the east of the lot, along with a bulletin board and clean-up bags. Grab a few and head on in!
This location is unique, as there aren't any fences, so your dog should respond well to verbal commands. Signs are posted along the park's roads about watching out for dogs, but since there aren't any boundaries, a loose dog could get themselves into trouble. Your dog can go off leash throughout the hillside and in some other areas of the park, just be on the lookout for posted signs in dog-prohibitive areas.
Trash cans and water fountains are spread throughout, though water is turned off during colder months. Plenty of benches are also on site for pet pawrents to relax on while dogs have a blast running up and down the hill. There's even a shallow stream for dogs to get in a splash for a quick cool down. It's a good idea to have a towel in the car for a quick wipe before heading home, as well as water to share during the off season. Always pick up after your pup, and be sure your dog has adequate tick prevention.
The Harford Dog Park is supervised and maintained by the Harford Park Dog Club. Membership costs to join the club are $20 a year per family. However, it is not required to be a member of the club to use the off-leash park nor is there a fee for using the park. The Club also organizes fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for bags and necessary maintenance. Small voluntary donations are gratefully received.
