All handlers must wear a Kingston Dog Park Badge, available at the Kingston Town Clerk during normal business hours, with proof of valid dog license and current rabies vaccination.
Handlers are limited to a maximum of 3 dogs and must remove pet waste immediately. Children ages 12 and under are prohibited within the Dog Park area. Children ages 13-15 are permitted only with adult supervision.
The park was established by the Town of Kingston in partnership with the Friends of Kingston Dogs, thanks to a contribution by the Stanton Foundation plus Community Preservation Funds. It is operated and maintained by the Friends of Kingston Dogs.
In earlier times, this land was within the region of the Patuxet, members of the Wampanoag tribe, who inhabited the area around the Jones River now known as Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth.
