I haven’t been very good about updating the website. We never announced the October or November pop-ups, except through Facebook. For the record, October was held at Kennedy Park again. November’s was Saturday 11/19/2016 at Eisenhower Park, inside the fenced-in baseball field.
December’s will also be in a fenced-in baseball field in either Fernridge or Wolcott parks, the weekend of December 17-18. If I haven’t updated this post with the exact info, feel free to email to the address at the foot of the page.

About the Pop-Up Dog Park program
Pop-ups were proposed to us by Mayor Cantor and Town Manager Van Winkle, as a way of demonstrating the dog park concept to the larger community. They are NOT a substitute for a permanent dog park, but they’ll be fun events in the meantime.
They will be held once a month for 12 months, culminating in the 2017 Pooch Plunge.
Each month they will be held in a different location in town. The locations are not to be considered possible permanent dog park sites.
Some of those locations will have fences, such as baseball fields, others will not.
