Hiking & Walking


Dogs in Town Parks

    • Dogs are welcome in all town parks provided that they are under owner control at all times (verbal commands or leashed). However, we ask that all dogs be leashed while visiting:
      • Halfway Brook Trail
      • Hovey Pond
      • Rush Pond Trail
    • Additionally, we ask that dogs not be allowed on athletic fields or sporting courts.
    • The Parks & Recreation Department will assist in facilitating a report to SPCA of Upstate NY, but has no enforcement authority - this service has been contracted to SPCA of Upstate NY (518)798-5656


    • Leashes are required at Hovey Pond Park, Halfway Brook Trail and Rush Pond Trail.
    • Please keep your dog under your control, within sight and hearing distance while enjoying our trails.
    • Please clean up after your dog and dispose of waste properly.
