ABOUT FRIENDS OF MORRISVILLE DOG PARK:
Friends of Morrisville Dog Park (FMDP) is a 501(c)(3), Pennsylvania non-profit organization established in 2009 by a dedicated group of volunteers with a mission to create an off-leash dog park in Morrisville, PA, to enhance community life. Through various fundraising efforts and the kind support of community members and local businesses, on June 26th, 2011 FMDP and the Borough of Morrisville officially opened a safe, clean and friendly off-leashpark for dogs of all sizes to come with their owners to play, exercise and socialize.
FMDP is responsible for the park’s general maintenance, upkeep, improvements and ongoing expenses, and continually seeks to find ways to enhance the park, support its operation, and create the most welcoming environment for all visitors. FMDP also works to encourage responsible pet ownership through classes and special events.
Morrisville Dog Park is located on designated Bucks County Open Space property which has been generously licensed to FMDP by the Borough of Morrisville to be used specifically for a dog park. In recognition of the park’s value to the Morrisville community, the Borough also contributes to park maintenance by regularly mowing the grass and picking up trash and recycling.
You can visit the park at Souh Delmor and East Philadelphia Avenues in Morrisville, PA, free of charge, seven days a week from dawn until dusk. To help ensure that all dogs feel secure in their environment, the park consists of two separate fenced-in areas: one for dogs weighing 35 pounds or less, and one for dogs weighing 36 pounds or more. Rules and regulations for park conduct are clearly posted at the entrance to the park.
From landscaping and beautification costs to the purchase of fencing and waste bags, and everything in between, FMDP relies on the critical support of local businesses and area residents.
