** The park is free to use and open to qualified residents and non-residents.

While using the Boneyard Dog Park, all handlers must visibly wear their PAL on their person. After the park event, PALs will be available at the Kingston Town Clerk’s Office during normal Town business hours.

Why  a Dog Park in Kingston

– Allow dogs to exercise and socialize safely while off-leash;

– Promote responsible dog ownership;

– Provide outlets for dog owners to socialize;

– Make for a better community by promoting public health and safety, and

– To build and maintain Off Leash Dog Areas (OLDA) in Kingston, Massachusetts called THE BONEYARD

The proposed Dog Park will be a fully fenced dog area with a double-gate entry system (to prevent escapes). The area will be at least 1/2 acre and will be divided into two separate sites for large dogs and small dogs.

The Dog Park will have a water fountain, benches and shade structure(s) for the humans and the canines. There will be several waste bag stations and trash cans available for responsible owners to clean up after their dog

It’s behind the mall (Kingston Collection, formerly Independence Mall) off Rtes 3 & 44.
