Winter dog park opens Friday

The seasonal dog park at the Teton County Fairgrounds is scheduled to open Friday, according to town and county officials.

The Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Department, in collaboration with Paws of Jackson Hole, sets up the free service each winter on the west side of the Teton County Fairgrounds on Snow King Avenue. The chain link fence enclosure has double-doored entrances to accommodate off-leash recreational opportunities for pups during the winter months.

The park will be open from sunrise to sunset through May 1, 2021, weather dependent.

PAWS of JH will provide mutt mitts and handle refuse collection for proper disposal, so “Please be respectful of others using the facility and clean up after your pet,” they ask

Questions can be directed to Andy Erskine, parks manager, at aerskine@tetoncountywy.gov.
