Westfield's Dog Bark!

Every Dog Can Have A Day in the Park!

Located on 125 Lockhouse Road in Westfield, MA, the dog park is a hit with both dog and owner alike.  Your dog(s) will enjoy free running within the fenced in park, and an opportunity to play with other dogs. Owners find the park a wonderful place to interact with their pets, as well as make human social connections with other owners.

The park is a fenced in area with tree cover, offering partial shade for the park benches and picnic style tables. The ground is bedded with wood chips, keeping the park mostly dust and mud free.  Dog waste bags and disposal receptacles are in the park for owners to clean up after their animal(s).  A water faucet for drinking water is available (closed in winter).  Visitor donations often keep a supply of water bowls, dog toys, and tennis balls available at the park.

First Time Suggestions

Here are some other things you should consider to help make your visit to the dog park a success.

•  First time users should consider coming at off-peak times for their initial visit. At times, the park can become quite crowded. If you are not sure how your dog will react to the current conditions, don't put pressure on your dog by forcing it into what it thinks is a threatening situation. Instead, come back at another time when it is less crowded.

•  If entering or leaving the off-leash area, do not enter the double-gated transition area if there is already someone in that area. This will eliminate the possibility of both gates being open at the same time.

•  Place your dog off leash in the transition area before entering the unleashed area. Some dogs can feel threatened if they are leashed in the presence of unleashed dogs.
 

Westfield Dog Bark Friends is dedicated group of volunteers working together to maintain the dog friendly area at Arm Brook Park.The organization, along with the Parks & Recreation Dept, has been working to bring the citizens, both canine and human, a dog friendly fenced in area.
