Harkness Memorial State Park

Harkness Memorial State Park is dog-friendly. The centrepiece of this state park is the elegant summer mansion of the Harkness family. The big colourful building and the surrounding gardens, lawns, and trees were made into a state park in 1952 and certain parts of it can be enjoyed by dogs and their owners today. Pets on a leash are permitted in picnic and lawn areas, but are not allowed on the beach or in formal gardens. Harkness Memorial State Park is open every day of the week from 8am until sunset.

    Nice walk, even when it’s busy

    Great walk around even though it was busy as it was one of the first nice days of Spring, there was plenty of room to roam and it didn’t really feel as crowded as it was. Nice atmosphere and family oriented- very dog friendly. The only reason it doesn’t get 5 bones is lack of doggie bag availability and trash cans were also far and few between.
