Mayor Thomas P. Koch is proud to announce the official opening of Quincy’s first City dog park. The park is centrally located on Quarry St. and includes three separate areas for active dogs of all sizes, small dogs and senior dogs. It is equipped with shelter pavilions, benches and watering stations.
The Stanton Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting the welfare of dogs and strengthening the human/dog bond, granted the City of Quincy $247,500 towards the park’s design and construction costs.
The 20-acre parcel will also be home to the future Quincy Animal Shelter/Quincy Police Canine Unit and Animal Control.
The park is located on Quarry St in Quincy, next to the Avalon Development. The park is open everyday from Dawn til Dusk.
In accordance with Governor Charlie Baker’s guidelines for the state of Massachusetts, the City of Quincy requires face masks and the practice of proper social distancing while enjoying this new space with their pets. The use of a mask does not replace important social distancing measures. Individuals must continue to maintain more than six feet of distance from other people, wash hands regularly with soap and water and stay home when sick.
