The Sharon Dog park is located between Lake Massapoag and South Main Street, right next to the Deborah Sampson Park. When traveling down south main street, turn onto East Foxboro Street and follow the road for a few hundred feet until you see baseball diamonds on your right. There will be tennis courts on your left and that’s there the parking for the dog park is located.
The trail to the dog park is next to a large graffiti-ed wall, the signs are frequent and will show you the way. The trail is actually the Sharon Exercise Trail which is great for a walk with the dog. The trail includes dog leash hook ups along the way so if you need a rest your dog won’t run off.
At first glance it is obvious the park well cared for, with a lot of signage and a brand new fence. It is a large enclosed park that allows dogs of all sizes to get the exercise they crave. The ground is completely covered in mulch and has a small hill for the dogs to run around or jump off of. Unlike most parks, there are many trees which provide a lot of shade all around the park. This benefits both you and fido. However, your dog probably does not appreciate the fact that there are multiple benches like you do. There is a small dog section which can be reached through the back of the main section. It is rather small and unimpressive but for those who are scared to let their dog ruff house with the others this is a necessity.
The Sharon dog park has the amenities needed, such as poop bags, empty trash cans located in all the corners of the park and the hard to find running water spigot. The park recommends you bring your own drinking water for the dog and asks patrons to not waste too much water, but as I saw, its perfect for hot days or when your dog gets muddy trampling through the trail. Unfortunately there are no lights to illuminate the park at night, but its only open from dawn till dusk. This means that you will have a harder time getting your dog some exercise in cooler months.
The patron’s love this dog park, claiming to be one big family. They say that everyone gets along and the dogs are always under control. This group of dog lovers can donate a recommended dollar a day in the donation box or online. The Sharon dog park is a wonderful spot to bring your pet, and I can assure that both you and your dog will leave happy. Check out the park for yourself and leave your comments below!
