The Doylestown Dog Park is a 3 acre fenced area at Turk Park where dogs are allowed to play off leash.

This beautiful space is open to responsible dog lovers, and their well-behaved dogs that are willing to uphold the park system and off-leash area rules and regulations.

Dogs are allowed in all parks as long as they are on leashes unless the area is identified as “no dogs” or at the Dog Park. The Park and Recreation Department promotes “Responsible Dog Ownership” which encourages dog owners to show respect for other park users, other dogs, and their own dogs.
