Description: Opened officially with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Bridgeport mayor Joe Ganim on October 9, 2018, the Bridgeport Dog Park now offers a dog-friendly amenity for dog owners who live near Bridgeport City Hall and the new residential units Downtown. Located directly behind City Hall in an 800-square foot, gated lot, the idea of the park sprung from a 2017 survey the Office of Planning and Economic Development gave to local dog owners. The park features a dog-bag dispenser, waste bin, several benches for seating, wood-chip ground cover, and a double-gated entrance. The lot also features a handful of trees within the gated area and plenty of branches that overhang the park for shade during the summer months.

REVIEW BY DUSTY BLUE: This is a no-frills park that has plenty of area for me to run around, plus a few trees for me to sniff and mark up. The park is located in a rather busy, downtown area so you can hear a lot of noise from cars. Because the park itself is only a few years old, the gating, bench seating, and fencing still looks like new, and the wood chips on the group are still pretty clean.
