Don't let your pooch stay indoors all day—treat them to some well-deserved, off-leash playtime at the York Dog Park! Located near Four Corners Health Department, this latest addition to the city's park system was created to give canine residents and visitors a safe place to exercise and socialize without the restriction of a leash.
Since opening its doors to the four-legged community in late 2013, the York Dog Park has become a prefurred spot among local pups and their humans. Spanning over 2 acres, the fenced-in site is divided into two sections: the smaller enclosure on the left is for little dogs, while the larger one on the right is for bigger canines. Both areas feature double gates for extra security, and picnic benches for the dog parents to sit on. There's plenty of shade throughout the park and drinking water is provided, so you and your pup can still visit on warm days.
While there are no play structures or agility equipment in the dog park, there is ample grassy space for running around, as well as some trees and bushes for sniffing. It is unknown if human restrooms are available on-site, but a plastic bag dispenser is installed at the entrance to make cleaning up after Fido easy.
In addition to picking up after your pooch, dog parents are expected to keep their furry charges under control at all times. See to it that your pup practices good petiquette and is well-behaved among their fellow doggos! Before you take your best friend to the dog park, make sure they're current on their vaccinations and have a license, which can be obtained from the police department. There is no fee to use the York Dog Park, so feel free to drop by daily with your pup—they'll definitely have a barking good time here!
