HJP Dog Park
The HJP Regional Park is host to our Dog Park. We currently have two areas for dog depending on their size. 34 lbs. and under and a 35 lbs. and over. The small are is just less than a 1/3 an acre. The large area is just under a 2/3 acre. We kept trees for shade. Boulders are used for Maura's Chat circle. These areas are an Off Leash play area for dogs.

You will also notice signs from our fence sponsorship program. This is an on going  program until all sections are full of names and business.

We offer recycled items to stay as green a park as possible. We had supplied to us from Pocono Township Road Crew several concrete culverts tiles that have been made into tunnels for the dog to run thru or jump over.

We also have poop bag stations made from "TIDE" pod holders. Dog people are bringing all their grocery bags to use as the waste bags.
There are hooks to hang your tote bags or leashes on. Our benches are made from logs and lumber provided.

We are building a network of trails for dog also. Currently there is one that starts at the dog park and is over 1,700 feet in length. The trail winds up hill, has a bench about half way. Signs are posted to show you the way. Remember dogs MUST BE ON LEASH while hiking.
