The Pippero Pup Park, a two-acre public dog park located at Friedman Park in Newburgh, opened its gate in October 2022. Since then, hundreds of pups and pup lovers have visited and donated to ensure that this spot will remain open and maintained for many years.
We need people like YOU to help us create FUN programs and events for the park. Join Friends of Pippero Pup Park today to learn more.

Join Friends of Pippero Park!
Are you a dog lover looking for a way to make a difference in your community and be around other like-minded people? We've got the group for you!
The Friends of Pippero Pup Park is a newly-formed volunteer group that will be charged with maintaining the Pippero Pup Park, Warrick County's only dog park located in Friedman Park.
Not only will the Friends check on the park daily, replenish toys, and water flowers, they will also answer dog park user questions and act as a liaison to the Warrick Parks Foundation. There will be fun activities for the group - as well as incentives for volunteering!
Do you need to Report an Incident?
The Pippero Pup 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 Pippero Pup 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 Pippero Pup 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.
