Note: The Doylestown Dog Park is currently open, but there are new guidelines and restrictions in place per CDC recommendations. Those guidelines can be found under Forms below.
Address: 1260, Almshouse Road, Warrington PA.
The dog park was established in 2012 in partnership with Doylestown Township, Doylestown Borough and County of Bucks as well as other public and private partners to address the needs of dog owners and non-dog owners alike.
Amenities: Off-leash sections defined by size: 1 acre for small dogs, 1 acre for large dogs and 1 acre for rotation area to preserve the turf and other special activities. Amenities include: Shaded pavilion area, waste bags and receptacles, water fountains, benches, trees and shrubs for screening and shade and informational kiosk. This beautiful space is open to responsible dog lovers, and their well-behaved dogs that are willing to uphold the park system and off-leash area rules and regulations.
The success of the Doylestown Dog Park is due in part to the unique mandatory education session that is required for all park users and submission of dog license, vaccinations and attendance at an educational orientation session. We believe that our requirements result in a better educated participant who understands their responsibility as a dog park user, resulting in a positive experience for all.
The orientation session will show new and potential members what to expect from dogs and people at the parks. At the conclusion of the session, you will be given an attendance certificate which is required for registration. All household members that will use the park are required to attend the orientation. Only individuals who have been to orientation are permitted to take properly “registered dogs” to the park.
