Dog Park


October 9, 2019

Good news! Thanks to the hard work of the Canton Parks staff the Dog Park Large Dog area was able to open this morning! Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this special project.

A portion of this area will temporarily remain closed to ensure proper growing conditions for the newly installed sod. Parks staff will continue to monitor the progress of the sod growth and will re-open this area once proper root system development has occurred. Again, we thank you for your patience as we’ve undertaken this important maintenance project in accordance with members’ requests to help improve the Canton Dog Park and ensure a positive dog park experience for everyone.

Dog Park Reminders

The mission of the Canton Dog Park is to provide a safe, fenced-in environment where dog owners can let their dogs run and play off-leash. Dog Park members are required to abide by the rules posted at the entrance gate in order to maintain the safety and well-being of all dog park users. Please note the following reminders:

  • Dog owners must clean up after their dog(s) and dispose of waste properly.
  • Dog owners must be in control of their dog(s) at all time and are asked to monitor and correct their dog's aggressive behavior. If your dog is displaying aggressive behavior, please remove them from the area immediately.
  • Dog Park members must use their own key fob to enter the park. Members should not swipe in other individuals nor open the gate to provide access to other members. Please remember that only registered Dog Park members are allowed inside the park.

Thank you to everyone for being the "eyes and ears" of the Dog Park and for reporting any issues or concerns to the Canton Park Office at 394-5310.
