We are so lucky in Belfast to have the only maintained and monitored, fenced area for dogs to run free in mid-coast Maine, thanks to the inspiration and efforts of a group of about 15 area dog lovers, Friends of the Belfast Dog Park. About a mile from the center of downtown, the park is within walking distance for many area residents. Opened in 2008, it includes sturdy fencing, stone walkways, a motion-activated dog waterer, benches and a gazebo for dog owners to enjoy during inclement weather. With separate areas for small and large dogs, frisky doggies can enjoy being safely off-leash. The Belfast Dog Park is free and open to the public from dawn to dusk except the second Saturday of each month it is closed from 9 to 11 AM for maintenance and cleaning. Volunteers are always welcome!
