  1. I’m impressed that you were able to find my photos of the Mount Laurel dogpark.
    You can use this photo too if you want to.

    I have some good photos of the Mercer County
    DP too.

    Please consider organizing these parks in order by County and then by the town. There are 2 Washington Townships at opposite ends of the state that both have dogparks.

  2. There is also a dog park in glassboro nj. This is the farthest south I have been able to find a dog park in NJ so far. It is directly behind the Dorothy L. Bullock Elementary School. It was established by some teachers and students from the school as there was no place for them to collectively socialize their dogs. Great little place with a small dog area and a large dog area. There is minimal shade and no water, but there are benches for the doggie parents.
