The Friends of the Chelmsford Dog Park was a spin-off organization from the CDA.
In December 2019, the CDA split the organization in order to better handle the tasks of their charter. The CDA remained dedicated to supporting local dog owners in all ways, including community outreach and education. The Friends of the Chelmsford Dog Park (FCDP) was to take on the role to work with the Town of Chelmsford (through DPAC) for maintenance and development of the park itself.
As of May 31, 2021, the FCDP decided to disband and maintenance of the park was handed back to the CDA.
