About the Friends of Brewster Dog Park

The Friends of Brewster Dog Park, Inc., is a public charity 501(c)(3) non-profit group that is dedicated to assisting the town to build, operate, maintain and provide stewardship for the Brewster Dog Park. Their goal is to provide a safe, year-round, handicapped accessible, beautiful dog park, open to the public free of charge; a place where our community of dogs (and dog people) can play, stretch their legs and socialize with other four-legged friends and people.


History of the Park

  • In 2013, Brewster dog owners requested a dog park and the Dog Park Development Committee was established. It evaluated a number of potential sites.

  • The Select Board approved the location in 2017. The dog park would be built on town-owned land conveniently located behind the Police Station at 631 Harwich Road route 124.

  • The Stanton Foundation awarded Brewster a park design grant, and another grant of up to $225,000 for construction. Additional post construction grants are available to Brewster from the Stanton Foundation. 

  • The Berkshire Design Group created design proposals and community input was provided at public meetings in 2018.

  • Construction bids received in the Spring and Fall 2019 were deemed too high. Project was re-bid in 2021 at a slightly lower price tag.   

  • At the May 15, 2021 Town Meeting residents voted to approve $185k of Community Preservation Funds for construction costs.  Agway of Cape Cod and Nauset Disposal have made significant in kind contributions pledges.

  • Friends of Brewster Dog Park raised $50k for benches, water fountains, kiosks, signage, a shed, misting fire hydrants, and agility equipment.

  • Brewster Dog Park opened on May 21, 2022, with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
