Hi, dog park lovers! You may have noticed that we had a direct hit from #StellaBlizzard yesterday. We measured 20" of snow at the park! Because of the conditions of the park at this time, we will be closed for the remainder of this month and will re-open for Spring on April 1st... no fooling! Thanks for your understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience.
(but when there is not a blizzard...

WHO WE ARE
For Paws of Ulster, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to maintain the only Ulster County Dog Park in the Town of New Paltz.
We began our efforts in 2009, became serious in May of 2010 and have come a long, hard way since then.
A New Paltz Town Board meeting held on March 22, 2012, approved a 2 acre parcel of land at the current Field of Dreams location to be designated for our dog park.
For Paws of Ulster, Inc. maintains contracts with Ulster County and the Town of New Paltz for this dog park, and we provide the amenities (the benches, waste stations, waste station bags)...the For Paws volunteers also pick up and remove the trash weekly and restock the waste stations, as well as carry out other maintenance projects.
