On Wednesday (October 15th), the Peterborough Dog Club Off-Leash Dog Park held a grand opening ceremony, complete with a bagpiper and ribbon cutting ceremony with the Mayor and dignitaries. Volunteers and donors alike were thanked for their contributions, as it was a long process to to bring the park to fruition. Now officially open with two large pads and an additional tiny pad for smaller dogs, this off-leash park gives pooches a place to socialize and burn off some extra energy.
DIRECTIONS TO DOG PARK:
To get to the dog park, you can park alongside Ashburnham Drive, just North of Lansdowne Street along the right hand side. You will see a small parking lot (which may expand in the future) and a sign along a paved path indicating the direction to the park. You can also park along the rear of Morello's Independent Grocer (400 Lansdowne Street East) and the paved path right there will take you to the park.
