Feathers & Tails

Training Area Rentals

The CDA is thrilled to announce that Feathers & Tails Pet Care will be renting the "training area" from 8am to 5pm on weekdays, starting July 22, 2019. Although they might not be present during that entire period, every day, the training area has been rented to them for their use only. This means that when they are present, that area is CLOSED for normal park use. We appreciate everyone's cooperation by leaving that area if trainees do show up.

HEAT WARNING – Park Closed

Due to excessive temperature and humidity expected this weekend, with heat indexes topping 105, the Chelmsford Dog Park will be closed from Saturday, July 20 through Sunday, July 21 for the safety and well-being of our canine companions.

Looking Forward to Spring!

Well, we just had another March snow storm, and by now, most of us are so done with winter.So, let's look forward to the spring and start planning for the things that need to happen (and things that we want to happen). Yes, this is an EXTENSIVE list of things to get done and. as usual, we'll continue to hold the work parties. However, this list is more than can be accomplished during a single work party, even  if we had 50 volunteers.
