What is Marge Hartman's Paws Town at Boardman Park?
Paws Town at Boardman Park will be an area set aside for dogs to exercise and play off-leash in a controlled environment under the supervision of their owners.
Thanks to a large gift from the Marge Hartman Foundation, and the fund raising efforts of Paws Town, INC. organization, the Marge Hartman’s Paws Town Dog Park is open and accepting membership applications. Memberships will be good for one year from April 1st to March 31st. Membership fees will not be prorated. Memberships for Boardman Residents will be $40.00 for one dog and $10.00 for each additional dog. Non-Boardman Resident fee will be $65.00 for one dog and $10.00 for each additional dog. Membership packets may be picked up at the Boardman Park Office, in the outdoor literature boxes at the Dog Park or click here for the Pawstown registration forms.
Paws Town is located at Boardman Park at the Southern Boulevard entrance just off of State Route 224. It is a 3.25 acre fenced in Dog Park and has separate fenced in areas for large and small dogs. Some of the amenities are water fountains for dogs and people, benches, and plenty of room for dogs to run off leash. Amenities that will be added at a future date will include trees for shade, landscaping, fire hydrants and areas with a wood fiber surface.
In the past, the Park has allowed dogs and owners to use the Dog Park without having a membership to try out the facility. Beginning April 1, 2014, everyone using Paws Town Dog Park must have a membership in order to ensure that all dogs are healthy and vaccinated. New members will be given a code to enter the Dog Park and they will also be issued a badge to wear while using the Dog Park.
