Why a Dog Park?

Did you know that a dog park is the most requested addition at our local parks?  With the help of the many, many dog lovers in and around Warrick County, we hope to build a dog park within Friedman Park that we can be proud of - and put to good use - for years to come.  Join us!

Incident Report

The Friedman Park Dog Park takes the safety of our animals and our park users very seriously. If you or your dog ever feel uncomfortable, it's always good practice to leave the park. 

 

For emergencies, please call 911.

 

The Friedman Park Dog Park is a volunteer-run organization, and therefore we have no way of patrolling the dog park. We rely on our visitors to follow the posted rules and to keep an eye on their dog at all times. Unfortunately, not all park users act this way. Sometimes new dog owners are unaware of the park's guidelines or the city's laws, so we encourage our veteran members to engage with new owners and politely point them towards one of our posted banners. You can also find a list of our rules here.

 

We understand that incidents happen, even when both parties are carefully watching their dogs. Whenever a dog or person is injured, we appreciate you filing an incident report for our records. The Friedman Park Dog Park will only intervene if several incident reports have been filed against an individual, and only if that individual is able to be identified. For that reason, we recommend exchanging contact information with the other dog's handler, but ONLY if you feel safe and comfortable doing so.

 

Submitting an incident report here is not a substitute for filing a police report.
