Behind the park the state police have a practice shooting range so if your dog doesn't tolerate gun shots every second then I don't recommend this park. My dog could care less but he doesn't appreciate the aggressive dogs that are almost always there. Today he was pinned by two angry canines. If your lucky enough to escape the noise and angry dogs, there is always mud from people dumping the dilapidated kiddie pools of dirty water. My dog always leaves a muddy. mess.
- EmilyJun. 25, 2018Great park
Conveniently located right NEXT to the animal control building, which is great. They have a hose from the building over to the inside of the park to use with the kiddie pools, so your pup can cool off. There are 3 separate entrances to get in the all dog area, and there's a separate fenced in small dog area. Both parts have plenty of seating, and there's a fair amount of shade. This park seems well-maintained and is always clean. I actually drive more than a half hour to come here instead of the parks in my area. My pup loves it too😊
- MirandaMore than a year agoGood park, but you must watch your dog!
Large, off leash park. Has a fenced in area for both large dogs and a smaller fenced in area for small dogs. Plenty of seating for dog owners, lots of toys, kiddie pools, agility tunnels, a gazebo, and access to fresh water. Most owners and dogs are regulars and are very friendly.
Beware of aggressive dogs as many owners do not watch their dogs here. There is poop along the fences in both the small dog and large dog areas. I do not suggest going here on the weekends as it is very busy and people do not monitor their dogs.
Best times to go are early in the morning and late in the afternoon on weekdays. Parking is good and the park is not too busy during these times.
- BCMore than a year agoNice area but some dog bullies
Most dogs and owners are very friendly here. If possible, I'd recommend going on a weekday to avoid overcrowding. Like most dog parks there are some dog bullies here who, for whatever reason, hone in on one dog and pick on them, sometimes with other dogs joining in. For the most part owners are good at stopping this but I've had to get between a few interactions with no help. Make sure to keep an eye on your dog and speak with the owner if you see this happening!
- Pete, Cindy and HansMore than a year agoWell Maintained
Dogs are as friendly as their human owners. Water available, poop bags as well as a small dog play area. Plenty of parking.

This park is large and securely fenced with a small and large dog section. We definitely enjoy the water hookup and kiddie pools in hot weather. Trees are nice for shade and an assortment of old lawn chairs are nice for the humans in attendance. Usually very busy and my one complaint has been a group of chain smokers monopolizing the gazebo area and polluting my pup's lungs any time she needs a drink or a break in the shade.
- TRCMore than a year agoGood Park
The people and dogs are very good at the park. The fenced in area is very large and the small dog section is very large as well. The park itself has some good features, there are plenty of water bowls, a few water pools, obstacles, benches and a shaded bench area for the humans as well as an elevated deck area in the center. Rating is 4 bones only because the park would be nicer if cleaned up a bit and if a drain was put in closer to where the water is so that the mud stream doesn't form. It is also a little dusty so more grassy areas would be nice too. My dog does love to go and most of the people who go are responsible with their dogs and few incidents occur.
- JessieMore than a year agoGreat park
I go to the derry dog park daily and it is a great place for dogs of all sizes. For the most part owners are considerate and watch their dogs carefully. The park is clean and even has water for the dogs. Next to the park behind the animal control is a river that is very clean and the dogs regularly swim in it. I would and have recommended this park to everyone I know who has a dog

This park is awesome. The nice part is there are many regulars that attend almost daily. The dogs get to know each other and become friends with their dog peers. It is clean, well maintained.
Some of the dog owners do go around and pick up dog poop making sure its totally clean before they leave if they are there for a long time.
