While leashed dogs are free to walk, romp and play throughout Lake Roland park area, dog owners have the opportunity to let their dogs run free and unleashed within the Paw Point enclosed dog park. Here, the community advocates at Bluestem provide an overview of Paw Point and the exciting amenities it has to offer to dog lovers and their furry friends.
What is Paw Point at Lake Roland Park?
Paw Point is an enclosed dog park within Lake Roland park that allows dog owners to let their dogs romp and play unleashed. The park, which is a short walk from Lake Roland park’s main entrance, is a fully enclosed, 1 ¼ acre space that includes lake accessibility. It is open from sunrise to sunset every day of the year, which makes it perfect for year-round fun for even the busiest of dog parents. Membership is available to both Maryland and non-Maryland residents for up to two dogs per membership.
What Amenities Does Paw Point Offer?
Paw Point offers a variety of surfaces for dogs to run and play on, including grass, dirt, mulch and rock. Access to Lake Roland, which is cordoned off with buoys, is available through the dog park, where dogs can cool off on hot summer days and take a paddle. A coded gate ensures that only members have access to the enclosure, which means your dog will be able to have fun and stay safe. If too much fun leaves your dog thirsty, fear not—a water pump and dog bowls are available. Time for your dog to do their business? Complimentary doggie waste bags and trash bins are also available.
For the truly devoted dog parents, Paw Point members also have access to fun annual events, such as the Paw Point Halloween Costume Party and Dogs & Donuts. Check out the links to get your cute dog fix.
