Tails Wag for New Pittsfield Dog Park

The park has separate areas for large and small dogs. 
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city unveiled its first dog park at Burbank Park this past week after nearly two decades of planning. Officials say there has been a positive community response from both four-legged and two-legged residents.   
 
"It's so nice to see all the happy dogs just running off-leash and playing with each other, their tongues hanging out, they're smiling, and their tails are wagging," Recreation and Special Events Coordinator Becky Manship said.
 
"It's just really a positive thing for Pittsfield and beyond because we know that there are some users from outside the community, so it's not just for Pittsfield."
 
The fenced area for off-leash dogs features a grassy layout for pooches to roam, a walking path, benches, complimentary waste bags, and even a dog-sized water fountain.
