Lose the leash -- at the new Fitchburg Dog Park!
198 Townsend Street, Fitchburg, Massachusetts 01420
Friends of Fitchburg DOGS, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of dedicated volunteers together with the City of Fitchburg Parks and Recreation and Conservation Departments working to create a dog park to serve our community.
The City of Fitchburg began exploring the idea of creating the park because of the growing number of residents who have dogs and want a nearby location where they could take them off the leash and let them run and play in a safe environment.
Thanks to a Design and Construction grant from the Stanton Foundation, a generous donation from Worker’s Credit Union, and much support from dog park friends member donations, our park location at Coolidge Park has completed construction!
Our Grand Opening was held August 26th, 2018 and was a pawsitively pawsome success! Hundreds of dogs, so many vendors, so much fun was had!
You are welcome to join us anytime, 8am to dusk, all year long! Please see our dog park rules page for more info.
See our events below for more opportunities to get involved and help continue to fund our park maintenance and growth fund.
Upcoming events include our Puppy Love PAWTY Live auction fundraiser at River Styx (Dogs welcome!) and our low-cost vaccine clinic at the Fitchburg Central Fire Station on Saturday March 23rd, 2019 10am-12pm.
