Description: New Fairfield Dog Park is across from the children’s playground on the property of New Fairfield Middle School. It sits on a little more than an acre of land and features separated fenced-in sections and double-gated entrances for large and small dogs. The park also features bench seating, poop bag dispensers, waste bins and cedar chip ground cover in the large-dog section. There are some trees onsite and the entire property is very well-maintained and kept clean. We hear at Halloween time they have a doggie costume parade!
REVIEW BY DUSTY BLUE: This was another park where I started on the small-dog side, but some of the big dogs ran to the fence and whined for me to come to their side… so I did! They were a lively bunch and I had to growl at some of the bigger puppies to get them in line. Not a problem after they understood who was boss! There is plenty of running room and trees for me to mark and check out, and some people had put out bowls of water for us dogs to drink. This is a very nice place and it had some great dogs and some nice people.
