Yarmouth Dog Park

The Yarmouth Dog Park was established to provide dog owners and those who care for dogs, the opportunity to socialize and provide their pets with off-leash exercise. It is located between South East Street and Forest Street, alongside the Broad Brook Trail, behind the Mariners ball field (see map below). The park features a ground cover of grass and has two separate enclosures. Visitors to the park will need to bring their own water. Please note that the dog park is not accessible to persons with mobility issues.
