Open in the fall of 2013, Woodstock’s Dog Park is located off Connell Park Road, between the AYR Motor Centre and the race track. This facility is for everyone to use free, off-leash dog park to provide exercise, play and social opportunities for their canine companions.
The fenced-in dog park provides peace of mind for dog owners: a large area is available for larger and more confident dogs, while a separate, smaller area serves the needs of smaller and less confident canines. Dogs and their owners use the entrance gate to access the unleashing/ releashing area, where the dog’s leash is removed. The dog and owner then enter the area of their choice with the dog off-leash, minimising anxiety and stress for the dog if other excited dogs in the park come over to greet him or her.
Fresh water and toys are available, and benches have been provided for dog owners’ use. For safety and hygiene reasons, dog park users are required to read and respect the Woodstock Dog Park rules, which are posted.
