Mission & Vision:
Now that we have established our park, our mission is to enhance a well-designed dog park for the enjoyment of Newtown residents as well as to continue fund-raising events to provide the resources for ongoing maintenance of the park.
Our slightly-larger-than-two-acre land parcel is on Old Farms Road, off Wasserman Way, adjacent to the new Brian J. Silverlieb Animal Care and Control Center and across the road from the Governor’s Horse Guard.
Features in the park include two fenced play areas—a large general play space and a smaller separate section for smaller, older and more timid dogs
Availability of drinking water seasonally, shade structures and trees, and benches will provide a safe and comfortable environment for human and canine park visitors.
And because it’s important to us that dogs have fun and stimulation, our park includes agility course elements and other special features.
