About Us

Fresh air, room to play and making new friends!

 

Established in June 2011, the Pawtucket Dog Park has become a beloved location within 

Slater Memorial Park to bring your pup to run, play and socialize with others.  It has also 

become a great place for people to meet and make new friendships. It has been said that

 the Pawtucket Dog Park is one of the best off-leash dog parks in the  state of Rhode Island.

        We are located just behind the Looff Carousel which is across from the duck pond in the 

center of the park. We offer fresh water, lighting in the evening in the spring and fall months, 

a well lit parking lot with ample parking  and an abundance of natural beauty all around the park. 

    The dog park is overseen by the Parks and Recreation Department as well as the Pawtucket 

Dog Park Committee.  The committee is made up of volunteers whose job it is to promote the dog park, run fundraisers and fun programs and keep the dog park in the best physical condition possible.

    We invite you to come and join us at the Pawtucket Dog Park!

Fun For All

We offer so much for you and your pup to enjoy yourselves. Please enjoy the covered benches to protect you in the scorching sun and pouring rain. There are fresh water spigots available to refill your pup's water bowl. Come after work in the Spring, Summer & Fall and relax at the park under our spotlights until 9pm and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Historic Slater Park. 


Above all, follow the rules and enjoy your 

time at the dog park!

Annual Events at the dog park

Every spring we hold our SPRING FLING clean up of the dog park. We rake, plant, paint, shovel and perform general clean up of the dog park.


In August, we hold our annual big fundraiser - DOGAPALOOZA FAMILY FESTIVAL. This year it will be held on August 1st & 2nd in the parking area at the dog park. 


There will be vendors, food trucks, entertainment, contests and so much more. Be on the lookout for our announcement later this spring!


We will be looking for volunteers for both events!
