My goldens and I had a really nice day at Cat Rock Park! They got to play off leash with the other dogs and even went swimming. We will go again

I met a friend here to walk the dogs off leash. It was a really nice place and there were several friendly off leash dogs. I parked in what looked like a standard parking spot in front of the field between two other cars. When...More

Beautiful scenery including a pond where dogs can swim, woods, open fields. Feel like you're far, far away from the city at Cat Rock.

You need a resident sticker or dump sticker for parking in most places, regardless of day of the week. I have heard that they do ticket cars w/o the stickers. There might be places that don't specify residents only.

I think only dogs. I didn't see any where people could swim. But that's a great idea. I would love to swim with my dog.
