Near the coast of the Gulf of Maine, Lewiston is a beautiful city that is complete with waterways like the Androscoggin River and Lewiston Falls. This town once was settled by those who derived from Quebec, now it's a well-populated town that is loved by both it’s human, and it’s four-legged community friends. Lewiston has so much to offer its doggie community.
One of their favorite locations just happens to Robin’s Garden and Dog Park located on Strawberry Avenue near the downtown emergency vet. Robin’ Garden and Dog Park is a fully fenced-in, off-leash dog park that your pup is sure to love. The park was designed by the humane society, and it honors Robin, in memory of this special dog whose owner was a huge contributor to the park.
This 1-acre park has two sections, a section for smaller dogs and a section for dogs that are 30 pounds and over. It’s a great place for socialization and interaction. Both sides of the park have dog watering bowls. When planning your visit though, please bring water with you since Robin's Garden doesn't have available running water.
Robin’s dog park also has amenities like a lovely white gazebo, plenty of chairs for humans, boulders scattered throughout the park and some shaded areas. There is even a couple of cleanup stations to clean up after your pet. Also be sure to bring doggie wastes bags, just in case. The dog park does offer waste bags, but they do run out from time to time.
While visiting Robin’s Garden and Dog Park keep in mind that there are several rules in place. Always clean up after yourself and your pooch. Dog owners must remain in sight of their dog and be in charge of their dogs at all times. Food and treats are not allowed with the fenced in areas.
And lastly, no one under the age of 18 can be in the park without an adult. Lewiston is an extraordinary city for a dog to visit or live. Robin’s Garden is just one of the dog-friendly places that this city has to offer. If you are in the area, stop in for a visit.
