Light the Park

A generous Cape Ann dog guardian has offered to donate solar lights for the dog park. We are currently raising funds to pay for installation. We only need $5,000!

Dog Park Ordinances

This is David Blake or "Ace's Dad". We wanted to recognize him as The Gloucester Dog Park's Volunteer of the Month. He has weeded much of the fence line between the small dog section and the large dog section of the park. This is a really important thing because left unchecked, the weeds could one day overtake the fence. David is now going around and weeding other parts of the small dog section too. Thank you David for all your hard work on keeping the park clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy. We know David is not alone in his endeavors and there are many other volunteers who keep the dog park up and running and looking great on a daily basis! Thank you to all this volunteers who are behind the scenes too. You all are awesome! Just a reminder that the City of Gloucester owns the land, but it has been up to regular citizens like us to construct, organize, plan, fundraise and maintain the Gloucester Dog Park. If you would like to help out and volunteer at the Gloucester Dog Park in any way, please contact We really need volunteers to check doggy bags, staff booths at events, fundraise and help on clean up days too. Any other ideas on how to help, let us know and we will help you organize that too! The time commitment can be as little as a few minutes a week up to an hour or two here and there. Please reach out to us if interested! It really is a lot of fun! Thank you to David for all his hard work! And thank you to all our volunteers for making the Gloucester Dog Park the great place that it is! Thank you!!! You are awesome!​
