Chelmsford Dog Association: Important Organizational Update

We have collectively established a new organization called "Friends of the Chelmsford Dog Park" (FCDP), which has the sole mission of working with the Town of Chelmsford to develop, maintain, and otherwise care for the Chelmsford Dog Park. Effective January 1, 2020, the CDA is handing off the responsibility for the Chelmsford Dog Park to the FCDP while the CDA focuses on community events, outreach, support, and education.

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. Please take care with your dogs and keep them inside and hydrated in this dangerous heat.
