Coming Soon - A dog park in Wolcott!

127 Mad River Road

The Town of Wolcott will be building a dog park next to Peterson Park. There are approximately 1500 licensed dogs in town and clearly a need for a safe area for our dogs to exercise and socialize.The park will feature two play area's. A smaller play area for smaller or timid dogs. A larger play area where any size dog is allowed. Both play area's will have a double gate entry to ensure safety for you and your pet. Some benefits of a dog park are:

  • Provides a safe, fenced-in area for dogs to socialize and exercise - allows dogs to run off leash.
  • Good family activity
  • Happy, healthy and well exercised dogs are calmer & better behaved, reducing nuisance barking and other annoying behaviors exhibited by un-exercised dogs.
