Rocky Hill Dog Park

Subfacility of Elm Ridge Park

  1. 1

The Rocky Hill Dog Park opened in July 2010 after years of fundraising. The dog park is open dawn to dusk.

Dog Park Mission

The Rocky Hill Dog Park's mission is to create a fenced-in, off-leash dog park where well behaved canine citizens can exercise in a clean, safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property or wildlife. This beautiful and well-maintained space is open to dog lovers and friends who are willing to uphold the park's rules and regulations. The dog park is a community project in partnership with the Town of Rocky Hill, designed to satisfy the needs of dog owners and non-dog owners alike. The Town of Rocky Hill promotes education, training and recreational activities that facilitate responsible dog ownership and well behaved dogs through the use of volunteers and with support of the community.
