Off-Leash Dog Regulations Reminders
Thorndike Dog Park Remains Closed.
APD is receiving increased complaints of dogs being off-leash outside of allowable hours, plus running on baseball diamonds. Off-leash hours are between 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and dogs are to be kept off baseball diamonds at all times. Dogs can easily damage these playing fields.Please be advised that any resident with a dog that is off leash in an unapproved location and/or time can be cited. Citations are also given for failing to clean up after your dog. For failing to do so, there is a $75 fine for the first offense with increased fines for subsequent offenses. A list of these fines may be viewed at arlingtonma.gov/animalcontrol.
