Johnstown Dog Park is Open!

GRANVILLE, OHIO (January 26, 2022) Dogs are now able to frolic off-leash at the new Johnstown Dog Park, which enjoyed its grand opening on November 12, 2021!

Made possible through collaboration between the Licking Park District and Village of Johnstown, the Johnstown Dog Park features small and large dog sections, complete with secure double-gate entryways, shade trees, pet waste stations, and safe fencing, for both pets and owners to enjoy.

This dedicated space will provide a place for pets and their humans to form a special community where pet owners can share tips, advice and experiences with one another, and their pets will have a safe place to play and socialize. Socializing your dog is a healthy way you can help it to be more friendly and confident, as well as eliminate fears, aggressions, and anxiety it may have towards people or other dogs.

Visit the new 1.4 acre dog park to have fun and get some of your dog’s energy out. It is located by Trailhead Park, 157 E. Jersey Street, Johnstown, Ohio. Access is from Jersey Street, Trailhead Park parking lot or E. Douglas Street.
