Cape Cod Dog Parks

Unfortunately, there are only a small hand-full of Cape Cod dog parks but I hear there are more in the works.

Harwich Dog Park--Harwich

This park is currently being planned and they are supposed to announce the exact location in late spring 2009. I will keep you posted but in the meantime.

Fresh Pond Dog Park--Dennis

The Town of Dennis is proud of the first official Dog Park on Cape Cod. Fresh Pond Dog Park has a good-sized fenced enclosure and a half-mile walking trail through cedar and maple woods.

In the summer, dogs can swim in the fresh water and play without disturbing beach-goers! There's even a picnic area where you can rest after your activities.

Enid Swimming

In the winter months, this Cape Cod dog park is also a great place to take your dog for a walk and/or play in that enclosed area. The only charge is a request that you clean up after yourselves and keep the park clean and available to the next visitors.

The park is a collaboration between the Dennis Natural Resources Department, Animal Control, the Conservation Commission, and the Board of Selectmen.

Additional site improvements were donated by The Cape Cod Kennel Club, Derbyfield Kennel, Eagle Fence, the volunteers of Americorps, and the Dennis DPW. The park is overseen by Natural Resources Department officer Brian Malone and Animal Control Officer Cheryl Malone.


Route 6 to Exit 9A and Route 134 SOUTH Stay on 134 South through 3 traffic lights Fresh Pond Dog Park is on the right (west) side of Route 134, one half mile past the lights at the Upper County Road intersection.

Pilgram Dog Bark Park--Provincetown

This great dog park consists of almost an acre of land enclosed with a six foot high fence and double entry gates facing away from the street.

For safety sake, two sections have been created -- one for dogs under twenty-five pounds and a general section for all dogs. This way if you have a small timid dog, they might feel more at home with other like-minded canines.

In keeping with the town's artistic reputation, the Bark Park is decorated in a canine theme complete with benches shaped like a bone, and another one depicting 2 dogs playing with a rope.

There are currently only 10 parking spaces. The park is located on the corner of Shank Painter Road and Rt. 6 in Provincetown, next to the Cumberland Farms. Visit The Bark Park Web Site.
