Charlestown's Clark "Doc" Werner Dog Park

The Clark "Doc" Werner Dog Park is located on the west side of Spring Street, across from the basketball courts that are in Greenway Park. There are two areas in the park - one for large dogs and one for smaller dogs. In order to use the dog park, each dog must be registered with up-to-date proof of vaccinations.

 

The park features fencing and a state-of-the-art electronic security gating system, play and exercise equipment for the dogs, and walking areas throughout and around that are designed to be multi-use green space for both pet owners and the general public. The park is open dawn to dusk.

Upon completion of registration, owners will be issued a key fob that will enable access to the park. Owners are not permitted to take dogs that are not registered into the park. If a person has multiple dogs, each dog must be registered. Each dog is only permitted in the area of the park for which he/she is registered.

 

Owners are solely responsible for their dogs. Entering the dog park is at each owner’s risk and each owner is responsible for keeping their dog from engaging in dangerous behavior with people or other dogs.

 

Please print and fill out the registration form and bring it to City Hall (2nd floor) between the hours of 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, Monday - Friday, or email to Parks@CityofCharlestown.com.
