Paws-town Registration

Looking for your pet to be healthier and happier this year?  Spring is on the way and it’s a perfect time for you and your dog to enjoy the benefits of the outdoors by joining the Marge Hartman’s Paws Town Dog Park at Boardman Park.  Whether you and your dog like to exercise, socialize or just enjoy the fresh air, you can do so without concern at Paws Town Dog Park. Since Paws Town first opened it has been Boardman Park’s goal to provide a fun, social and safe environment where dogs, both big and small, are able to play off leash.  Being a member’s only dog park enables us to accomplish this.  Members of Paws Town have told us they have peace of mind knowing that all dogs in the dog park are vaccinated and registered with the county. Also, the double gate entry system allows you to unleash your dog after entering but before interacting with other dogs, our lawn is well maintained, and our caretakers patrol the area several times a day and are just a phone call away.   The 3.25 acre fenced in Dog Park has separate fenced in areas for large and small dogs, water fountains, a dog wash station, benches, small shade trees, and dog waste bags.

One-year memberships to Paws Town are available for 2024-2025. Memberships will be valid from date of purchase through March 31, 2024.  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-Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm, or you can register online at

Allow your dog to meet new friends while getting the exercise they need by trying out the Dog Park with our one-day pass. One day passes are available for $5.00.  Bring your dog’s shot records on your Veterinarian’s letter head, rabies and county tag numbers and enjoy a day with your “best friend” at Paws Town.

If you would like to purchase a tree, in honor of or in memory of your dog, to be planted in Paws Town, forms can be picked up at the Park Office.
