The furbulous Sesqui Dog Park is located inside the Sesquicentennial State Park, and is the pawrfect place to exercise your pup! To find the parking lot closest to the dog park, enter the main park via Two Notch Road and pass the welcome station. It is just a short walk from the parking lot to the dog park. Dogs are welcome in all areas of the main park and on the trails on leash, but at the dog park, they can run free!
The dog park is a huge two-acre spread of forested ground which has been fully enclosed with high chain link fencing, and surfaced with dirt, bark chippings, and fallen leaves. With this soft footing, your doggo can run and romp to his heart's content!
Before using the facility, you'll need to obtain a permit from the park office. To get the permit, have a certification of vaccinations ready, and proof of neutering. Bring your pup when applying for the permit, as they will be photographed. Daily permits are available at a cost of $4, but a yearly pass can be purchased for $25. Permits for the dog park do not include admission to the larger park, which is $5 per adult and $3 for children between six and fifteen. Under fives are free.
Each person can bring a maximum of three dogs at a time to the park, and can only be accompanied by two other people. Children under ten years of age are not permitted in the off-leash area. You'll need to keep your dog in visual contact and under good voice control.
Balls and Frisbees are allowed as long as they don't encourage aggressive behavior. Be sure to bring your own clean up bags and pick up anything your pup leaves behind. There is a water spigot on site, but do bring a drinking bowl for your dog's convenience.
For a puptastic time your pup won't soon forget, head to the Sesqui Dog Park today!
