Dogs and their human companions are welcome to enjoy the Shelton City Dog Park, located on the corner of Route 108 and Nell’s Rock Road in Shelton, Connecticut. Consisting of almost 2 acres, the park is fully fenced and divided into a play area for small dogs (under 25 lbs) and another, much larger, run and play area for dogs of all sizes. For safety, the entry is double gated. Please be sure to close each gate behind you as you enter.
Parking is available in two lots, one at the entrance and the other by the Port-olet. For safety and access reasons, please do not park on the entry road or near the park entry gate.
The park is a great place for dogs to run and play, with lots of opportunities for jumping, dodging trees, rooting around in the undergrowth and just generally having a great doggie time. There are benches for humans and lots of shady areas for both canines and humans. For canines and humans who like to hike, there is a lovely level, surfaced walking trail that runs alongside the park, leaving from the main parking area next to the road.
Tennis balls are available for games of doggie fetch and water bowls are available for drinking, however, you must bring your own water. To prevent the spread of disease, please do not allow your dog to drink out of a standing water bowl. Please dump the water and fill with fresh. There are plans underway to install a water pump, so there will soon be fresh water available at all times.
There is a Portolet for human use. Canines are asked to have their human companions poop scoop if they go anywhere on the property (in or outside of the park). Dogs must be properly vaccinated and licensed. Please do not bring dogs with contageous diseases to the park. Dogs and children must be properly supervised at all times. Please don’t allow your dog to bark excessively, as there are park neighbors and fishing nearby. Park is open 7 days a week from dawn to dusk.
