Nestled along the entrance to the beautiful Melville Park and Trails in Portsmouth, RI, the Portsmouth Dog Park is a special place where dog owners can let their furry pals romp off-leash in a friendly and safe environment. The Park is free to the dog-loving public, open every day from dawn until dusk.
The park offers free parking , full handicapped accessibility, areas for large and small dogs, fresh water for dogs and humans, a walkway for observation, benches and toys, as well as mutt mitts and waste disposal stations for both the large and small dog areas. Those who enjoy the Park, residents and visitors alike, help ensure that the Park is kept safe and clean by following our sensible rules of dog ownership.
The Portsmouth Dog Park is made possible thanks to the generous contributions of donors and volunteers in the community. It has been such a grass-roots success that construction is about to begin on a project to expand the park’s footprint, increase parking and add lighting to provide access from sundown to 8:00pm in the winter months.
