Is Fifi looking for a small dog park in beautiful Waterboro, Maine? Then take your pooch to the Waterboro Dog Park where Fifi can roam around off-leash. The Waterboro Land Trust runs this doggy space and does have poo bags available. However, dog owners are expected to pick up all waste, so there are no trash bins onsite.
Unfortunately, this results in the corner of the park sometimes being filled with poop bags, yuck! But overall, this is a cute little park that has a high gate and double entryway to contain your pup. It’s also nestled in the woods, so visitors will enjoy a pleasant view of nature while chasing their pooch. Dog owners can even take Fifi on-leash for a walk on the surrounding hiking trails.
There are shady areas here because of the surrounding trees. The park also has benches for visitors to rest on. The owners have been trying to raise money for an agility course and small dog space, but as of now, dogs of all sizes play together. And currently, there are no doggy fountains or restrooms on site. Frequent visitors hope that this will change soon.
Visitors should be aware of some of the rules of the park such as no kids under 12 are allowed, dogs need to be friendly and over six months to play here, no dog toys are allowed, and dogs must have valid tags. Also, sickly dogs and dogs in heat are forbidden. The park is open to the public and free, but donations are accepted. After Fifi plays, visitors could explore the small historical town of Waterboro.
The town remains known for its lakes, agriculture, and livestock. Many parts of the this North Eastern town were home to Abenaki Native Americans. So if Fifi gets restless and eager to get some outdoor time, then check out the Waterboro Dog Park in Maine. Just remember to bring Fifi's poop back home with you. Or stop at the nearest gas station to respectfully rid yourself of doggy doo.
