Dog Parks Turned from Free to Fee?


The Lexington Paw Park

The 3 acre park near a soccer field in Lexington will require dogs to be well-behaved, spayed or neutered and vaccinated for admission. Dog owners will be required to provide all paperwork in return for a key to the dog park, similar to your neighborhood pool. Owners will also be required to pick up all wast, fill any holes dug by their pets, and refrain from smoking while at the park.

A $30 dollar annual fee for residents of the area, $50 for non-residents, will help to keep the park maintained and allow members to bring in one dog.  A $15 fee will be assessed per extra dog and the maximum is set at three pets per owner.

This is the sixth park of its kind, and town leaders love the idea of a member filled dog park. It keeps the dog parks maintained and full of happy dogs and owners.


Let us know what your thoughts are on member dog parks!
