Congratulations to everyone who attended the Gloucester Dog Park's Halloween Photo Shoot and Costume Contest! Together, we raised close to $400.00 for the Gloucester Dog Park! Congratulations to Kat and her dog Einstein, who won for The Best Large Dog Costume, Hannah and her dog Nacho who won for The Best Small Dog Costume, and Lisa and her dog Otis, who won for The Best Gloucester Themed Costume.

It's that time of year again! Time to license your dog! Submit your forms by April 30th to avoid the late fee. Forms can be found at the dog park or by clicking   *here*

Park Lights Update

All four Solar Lights at the Gloucester Dog Park are up and working properly. They are set to go on at dusk, and will turn off at 9:00 PM. Thank you to Tom & Kristin Zarrella for their generous donation of all four Solar Lights. They are beautiful and work well and add many more useable hours of the dog park in the winter months. And thank you to Solar One for their expert craftsmanship and helping us get them installed. If you see that one of the lights are out, or not working properly, please contact us at

Gloucester Dog Park is located in Stage Fort Park, Gloucester, MA. It's tons of fun for you dog! You'll like it, too. Dogs must have a valid dog licence (from anywhere) and must be well behaved. At the Gloucester Dog Park, we have a Small Dog area for dogs under 25 pounds, a Large Dog area for dogs over 25 pounds, "Tino’s Corner” a special area for dogs with behavioral issues that need to be by themselves and an agility center to teach and play with your dog. There are water fountains available for you and your dog to use in the Spring, Summer and Fall months. And doggy waste bags to clean up after your pup all the time! Thank you for using the Gloucester Dog Park. We hope you will care for it as much as much as you love your dog!
