The four-acre park is located in Community Park on Rt.19 in Cranberry Township. It was built by the Township’s Public Works Department with a lead contribution of $45,000 from the Cranberry Rotary Club, and features separate off-leash running areas for large and small dogs, as well as a second fenced space for large dogs to enable rotation of active play areas so that the fields can recover from wear and tear.  

  • Handicap-accessible fountain outfitted with drinking heads for people and dogs
  • Double-gate entry system allowing dogs to enter without letting others out
  • Clean-up bag dispenser

Please enjoy the Dog Park safely

There is no charge to use the Park, and it is open during daylight hours. Parking is adjacent to the facility, allowing dog-owners to bring their pets in and out of Community Park without walking through established child play areas. The dog park is not supervised, and visitors are asked to review and adhere to the posted rules regarding clean-up and allowable pet behavior.
