Glen Rock NJ Dog Park
Information Sheet


Why does Glen Rock need a Dog Park?


There are currently over 1000 dogs registered in Glen Rock. Today, dogs are prohibited from being on school property and must be leashed in all parks. There are currently 25+ parks/recreational areas established for citizens,  NOW the is 1 for dogs in GR! Off-leash dog parks offer residents an opportunity to exercise and socialize their dogs in a safe and secure park setting while getting to know other dog lovers in town. Over 50 New Jersey towns have at least one dog park and more are coming!


How is it paid for?

The park is entirely funded by private donations.  Our PROMISE.


Where is it located?

Our approved site, established by a Glen Rock Borough Council Resolution 238-15 on 12/9/15,  is an empty plot of unused borough land behind the recycling center at 350/390 Doremus Avenue. Block 46, Lot 4.02.  It is located between Upper and Lower Faber Fields. This site required extensive clearing and maintenance before landscaping and fence installation. See photo below.

Our 10 year lease was approved by the Glen Rock Borough Council in May 2019 (and April 2018).

Who maintains it?

Trash removal is done by the town, as it is for all parks. Glen Rock Dog Park Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit established for this purpose, working with town volunteers and park users, is responsible for ongoing maintenance of the park.


And the dedication...

The Glen Rock Dog Park was dedicated to the 9/11 Search and Rescue dogs in honor of their participation, tireless devotion and dedication in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy on New Year's Day ~ 1/1/2020.
