On Saturday, May 10, from noon to 3 pm, the Stamford Dog Park will celebrate its 5th anniversary with a photo exhibit, games, pizza, free giveaways, and a chance to mix and mingle with friends and their pets. There will also be a free microchip clinic offered by OPIN during the event.
The dog park, Stamford’s first, was officially opened by former Mayor Dannel Malloy on June 30, 2009. It consists of a 1.2 acre section of Hunt park, divided into two fenced areas, one for big dogs and one for small or aged dogs. Amenities include benches and chairs, water fountains for both humans and dogs, plastic waste bags, a bulletin board and shade trees.
The Stamford Dog Park is located at Hunt Park at the intersection of East Main St. and Courtland Ave.,
The event is sponsored by the Dog Friends of Stamford, a non-profit organization that created the park.
