The dog park at the Town of Hillsborough’s Gold Park will be closed Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 10 and 11, for mulch replenishment.
As a reminder, dogs are allowed off leash only inside the fenced dog park. Orange County’s leash law still applies at all town parks. Under the ordinance, dogs must be restrained when outside and must be walked with a handheld leash.
Dog walkers also are reminded to pick up after their dogs. Bags are provided at Gold Park, which includes a water fountain as well for dogs. Look for it at the bottom of the fountain near the large picnic shelter. Turnip Patch Park, located at 333 W. King St., has a similar feature on its water fountain.
Gold Park, located at 415 Dimmocks Mill Road, is open daily from 8 a.m. until 30 minutes after dusk.
