About the Manchester Dog Park Association

The Manchester Dog Park Association is a 501c3 non-profit organization, donations are tax deductible.

The Association’s goal is to provide off-leash dog parks in Manchester, NH. A dog park is a very simple concept. It’s a designated, fully fenced area where residents can bring their dogs to play and exercise with other dogs and their owners in an Off Leash Environment. With the help of generous donors and friends of the park, and in cooperation with the City of Manchester, the Manchester Dog Park Association hopes to create and maintain privately funded, off  leash dog parks throughout Manchester,  preferably one in each of the  North,  South, East and West  areas of the  city.

Dogs love unconditionally and are people’s best friend. They are fiercely loyal and protect us while asking for nothing in return. They are there for us at the end of a hard day and shower us with love and attention even if we don’t deserve it. We would like to repay these many acts of kindness by finally building them a place to play, a place for them to run free, a place to interact with other dogs and other people, and a place to call their own. This will be great for our four-legged friends.  We have also been told  that dog owners also enjoy the time they spend at the park where they socialize, exercise, and spend time with their dogs and neighbors alike.
