The Canton Dog Park will once again host its annual free “Bark in the Park” event Sunday, May 16, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees and their dogs can enjoy live entertainment, shopping, and giveaways - all while learning about and trying Canton’s off-leash Dog Park, located on Denton Road, north of Cherry Hill Road.

Although this is a free event, pre-registration will be required to ensure that capacity limitations are maintained. 

“As always, this annual event is the perfect opportunity for dog owners to come and try out the Canton Dog Park,” said Recreation Specialist Laura Mortier. “Participants will also receive some great information, coupons, and giveaways; plus, their four-legged companions will be able to run free and have some fun, too.”

No Dog Park membership is required to take part in this free event.  In order to attend this event, those who are currently not a member of the Canton Dog Park must present a valid Canton dog license, which can be obtained at the Canton Clerk’s Office for $10, as well as valid proof of your dog’s up-to-date distemper and rabies vaccinations, signed by an accredited veterinarian. No pre-registration is required for this event.

The Canton Dog Park has six acres of fenced-in, outdoor space for dogs to run and play off-leash, with specific rules to help ensure a safe and positive experience for everyone. The park is divided into rotating sections with a large dog section for animals over 20 pounds, and a small dog section for animals under 20 pounds. Annual memberships for the Dog Park are $25 for Canton residents and $50 for non-residents.
