Grading the Park
The park was created in 2013
The Friends of Gloucester Dog Park is an all-volunteer group of local residents who worked hard to build this park and continuing to work maintain this great facility. The City of Gloucester allowed us to build the park on an unused area in Stage Fort Park, but the cost of building and maintaining the park was on the dog-loving community.
After a year of meetings, public hearings and extensively researching the best dog parks across the country, the Friends of the Gloucester Dog Park achieved their goal when the Gloucester City Council approved Gloucester’s first-ever dog park in 2011. By unanimous vote, Stage Fort Park was the selected site.
There was a lot of hard work from volunteers and board members, a ground swell of community support, and some very civic-minded people contributing to the cause at the right time. Because of that, we now have a wonderful dog park for everyone to enjoy.
The city gave us the site to use, but maintaining the park depends on generous donors to cover the cost of waste bag supplies, plumbing, and mowing. You can help! Please donate today. Your dog will love you for it!
