PITTSFORD TOWN DOG PARK OPENS OCTOBER 8, 2019
East Street Location on Town Land Connects to Town Trails
Pittsford’s first-ever dog park opens Tuesday, October 8 at 3:30pm. The Pittsford Town Dog Park, at 34 East Street, provides residents and their canine companions a safe and enjoyable area for recreation. The location takes advantage of existing Town land in a grassy area tucked between the Town's Habecker Little League fields and the Town’s Parks Department building and is located on the Town's trail system.
Pittsford Town Supervisor Bill Smith will be joined by Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, along with Town Board members and staff, to open the park with a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 3:30pm. Those who register to use the park also will have access to all Monroe County Dog Parks. On-site registration will be available opening day from 3:00 – 7:00pm.
The Pittsford Town Dog Park has two off-leash areas, one each for large and small dogs. Dogs have access to play structures and water fountains. Dog owners can relax on benches and use picnic tables under shade trees. The facility includes a dog wash station to hose off muddy paws and coats. The park is located on the Town’s trail system.
The Pittsford Town Dog Park is open year-round from 7:00am until dusk. Find registration info on the County website at https://www2.monroecounty.gov/parks-DogParks.php
In keeping with the Town’s commitment to walkability and bikeability, two Town trails connect to the new dog park. Town crews have improved the existing parking surface at the location for those who need to drive to the site. The Town’s Recreation and Land Fees Trust Fund reserve paid for the $160,000 project budget. This is an existing Town fund developers contribute to for the development of parks, playgrounds and recreational resources.
