Bernards Township Dog Run Rules and Regulations

The dog run is open only to Bernards Township residents and their properly licensed dogs.

The facility is open for use from sun up to sun down, daily.

Use the dog run at your own risk. Bernards Township is not responsible for injuries you or your dog may suffer.

Please use good judgement before entering or releasing your dog into the run with other dogs.
