Help Fund Your Park!

The City of Gloucester let us use the land, but maintaining the park is on us. Help us reach our Annual Fundraising Goal of $5,000.

Help keep the park safe and well maintained for dogs and their guardians. Looking to volunteer? We are looking for anyone with experience with bookkeeping, fundraising, and construction!

The Gloucester Dog Park is located in Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, Mass. --It’s a fenced-in, off-leash area that’s tons of fun for your dog, and you'll like it, too! --Dogs must have a valid dog license (from anywhere) and must be well behaved --There is a small dog section for dogs under 25 pounds, and a large dog area for dogs over 25 pounds --There is a separate Agility Arena where you can train and play with your dog --And there is also “Tino’s Corner,” a special section for dogs who prefer to play by themselves --There are water fountains for you and your dog to use in the spring, summer and fall months --Waste bag dispensers are located throughout the park so you can easily clean up after your pet 

Enjoy your visit to the Gloucester Dog Park!


Here are photos from our 2019 Summer Kick-Off Party at the Park! Thank you to all who came out to support the Gloucester Dog Park. We raised nearly $500 for the park’s maintenance fund.  What a fun time!
