Waterman Street Dog Park is Open

The East Side’s four-legged friends have a new place to run free

East Side Monthly Magazine ·

You may have noticed that the heavily wooded area at the end of Henderson Bridge (right off Waterman Street) doesn’t look as heavily wooded nowadays. In fact a shiny new fence has been put up, a lot of brush has been cleared away and you might just see some dogs running around. This is the brand new Waterman Street Dog Park, which is now open to the public.

The dog park is the collaboration of the Providence Parks Department and local dog owners, which began back in 2013. Since its inception, the volunteers behind the dog park have held monthly meetings and gained the support of the community through tabling events. The park celebrated its grand opening with a small ceremony in September.

The park features areas for both small and large dogs, and is in a beautiful, partially wooded area. Dogs are invited to play off-leash and are encouraged to walk and explore the park with their owners. From dusk until dawn, pups that are four months of age and older are invited to have fun in the park. You bet that gets some tails wagging.
