The Barnstable Dog Park opened in 2018 and is located next to Hathaway’s Pond at 1431 Phinney’s Lane

The 22-acre location near Hathaway’s pond will feature areas for large dogs, small dogs, and a training area. The proposed layout includes a fence that will be rounded so dogs won’t be able to get cornered. We can’t wait to try this park out!


There has been lots of chatter about dog parks in Brewster, MA each year. There are lots of supporters, and lots of opponents. But still no dog park.

In 2013 Brewster formed a dog park committee. In 2017 the town select board approved a location for the dog park to be built on town-owned land located behind the Police Station at 631 Harwich Road. The project was sent to bid in 2019 but deemed too expensive. It was rebid again in 2021.

stay tuned… One of these years there’ll be a dog park in Brewster, MA to enjoy!
