The Scoop: Interview with Parks & Recreation Manager of Athletics and Aquatics: Jason Smith
Dog Parks


Exercise is an important part of keeping your pet healthy as well as stimulated. Taking your pet to the parks is a great way to help socialize them as well as burn off excess energy. Keep in mind all dogs must be on a leash when visiting the parks. Cleaning up and disposing your pets waste is also required when exercising your pet. Off-leash opportunities are available with a membership to the dog parks through the Parks and Recreation Department. You can learn more by visiting their website at
