The College Park Dog Park Association coordinates membership-based access to the Acredale Park dog facility managed by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, in College Park, Maryland and has done so continuously since 2002.
The mission of the College Park Dog Park Association is to keep the park friendly, safe and clean, in cooperation with the M-NCPPC. The dog park is fenced, has running water, members pitch in to keep the park clean of waste, and M-NCPPC maintains a healthy grass surface with shade trees. A paved path leads to the park from the parking area.
Our About Membership page includes details about becoming a member of the College Park Dog Park. It should answer most of your membership questions.

The College Park Dog Park relies on member volunteers to ensure continuation of our Association. Volunteers serve as President, Treasurer, and Membership Coordinator for the organization each year, selected through an annual election process.
We also expect members to maintain the park, by replacing dog waste bags, acting as Docents to orient new members, and helping with annual clean up events. If your dog loves the park, empty the trash.
A few are now using Whatsapp to communicate. Everyone who is signed up sees messages sent by all other members, messages such as "anyone at the park now?" "I'll be there tomorrow at 9." Early reviews are very positive.
As temperatures in the 50s and 60s : good bye snow -- hello mud.
The stakes and building materials you see near the park are part of a stream restoration project, and have nothing to do with our park, or the empty fields next to us.
