THE DOG PARK IS NOW CLOSED

dog park closedThe Dog Park in Knox Farm State Park is closed for a temporary amount of time. Since April is the beginning of what New Englanders call “MUD SEASON,” the State has decided to give the ground in the park a rest until the grass starts growing again and the ground hardens up. Please stay tuned to this website for information pertaining to when the Dog Park will be open once again.

The State does have plans to divide the portion of the Dog Park for large dogs into two sections. One side will be open and the other will not on a rotating basis. Once the open part gets muddy it will be closed and the closed part will be open and so on and so forth.
