    Dogs at Town Park 

There have been many concerns about dogs running free at the Town Park and Veteran's Field. Please remember that all dogs must be on a leash and under the control of the owner at all times and any mess that the dog makes is the owner's responsibility to pick up. Allowing your dog to run free on any town property is unacceptable and could constitute a danger to others who are trying to use our facilities. Please keep this in mind and enjoy your walk with your dog.
