The expansive Slater Memorial Park offers a lot of pawsome amenities to residents and visitors alike in Pawtucket, and lucky for the pups, there's a place just for them too! The Pawtucket Dog Park is the hottest spot around for pooches to play off-leash.
You can find this canine oasis on the opposite side of Looff Avenue from the duck pond, and behind the Looff Carousel. With sections for large dogs, and small dogs under 30 lbs., this fully fenced-in park is pawfect for getting your dog the exercise and socialization they crave. This park has everything, from an obstacle course featuring ramps, tunnels and platforms, to shaded benches where you and your pup can take a break from the sun.
Both sections are similar in size and provide a good amount of space for dogs to stretch their legs and make furiends. The terrain is a mix of dirt and grass, but it can get muddy in wet conditions. Hoses and bowls provide water to thirsty pups, but are shut off during winter so bring your own during those months. Clean-up bags and trash cans are on site to promptly dispose of waste. One of the best features of the park is the lighting, which is offered in the dog park during the spring, summer and fall months until 9 P.M., meaning night owls have a place to play too!
All dogs visiting this puptastic park should be spayed or neutered, over 4 months old, licensed and fully vaccinated. Always have your dog in sight, and be sure to fill any holes your dog may make before leaving the park. Keep your dog leashed when entering and exiting the park, and anywhere outside of it.
To explore the rest of Slater Memorial Park, clip the leash back on to enjoy sports fields, a farmers market, biking and hiking trails, picnic areas, and public restrooms.
For a furbulous day your dog will love, bring them to the Pawtucket Dog Park today!
