In cooperation with the City of Manchester, Manchester's first dog park was built and is privately operated by the Manchester Dog Park Association. The dog park is located on Bass Island on Second Street (south of Granite Street, north of Queen City Avenue).
The Manchester Dog Park Association is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that relies on the financial support of its members and donors with a goal is to build & maintain off-leash dog parks in Manchester, NH. A dog park is a designated, fenced, off-leash area where individuals can bring their dogs to play and socialize with other dogs and their owners.
The Bass Island park is a 10,000 sq. ft fenced area that has a double gated entrance for your dog’s safety. The park is open dawn to dusk. The park's rules and regulations are posted at the gated entrance outside of the fenced area. You are expected to clean up after your dog as well as filling in any holes it digs. There are trash barrels on site to discard waste and trash. There is no running water provided on-site, so you will need to bring water with you to keep your dog hydrated especially in the summer season.
