This program will run through April 16, 2016 and will be evaluated and monitored along the way. Park Rangers will increase patrol of these parks and citations can be given to those violating this new pilot program. Dog owners, be sure to ALWAYS clean up after your dog.
On January 13, 2016 an update to the dogs in parks pilot program was present to the Board of Park Commisioners.
In addition to the 13 parks listed above, dogs are welcome in the following City of Madison Parks - provided the dogs are ON-LEASH, licensed and permitted. Please be sure to use the posted signs in the parks as the most current dog area information. Please remember that dogs are not allowed in any non-designated park, children's play areas, beaches, athletic fields, conservation parks, or in any park building. During the winter dogs are not permitted on groomed cross-country ski trails.
