Off-leash Dog Run at Bumble Bee Road Park
In a cooperative project with Miranda Gallagher's Gifted & Talented class at Southern Middle School and HART for Animals, we are currently developing a 40,000 square foot off-leash dog park at our park on 1263 Bumble Bee Road Accident MD. The dog park includes a double-door entry system, waste disposal, and separate fenced areas for small and large dogs. Future development plans include:
Year 1 - DONE! a fence, dog waste disposal and signage;
Year 2 - benches & dog agility equipment;
Year 3 - a dog walking path;
Year 4 - DONE! water Fountains/water stations;
Year 5 - DONE! a dog wash station
We'll continue to update this page with news and development of this project. Please contact us if you are interested in helping us to develop this project.
5K Bark in the Park - TBD Sept 2017
We'll have the fourth annual "Bark in the Park" 5k race in Sept 2017, date TBD. Registration will be from 8 - 8:30 and the race will start at 8:45am.
It's an off-road (headphones OK), pet friendly race that will start and end from our park on Bumble Bee Road. The route covers a variety of terrain and has some moderate hills.
If you are planning on running or walking in the 5K, dogs are not required; however, to be eligible to bring your dog(s) along, he/she/they MUST have updated shots, proper tags, be friendly, and retractable leashes are NOT allowed. Also, bring along some waste disposal bags just in case your dog(s) happen to make a deposit along the way.
Route will be clearly marked and race will be double-timed (two timers to ensure reporting of results)!Register with the form below or online at Active.com Click here for rules for the Dog Park
