In order for everyone to safely enjoy our parks, open spaces, and walking trails, Township officials would like to offer a reminder that, per Chapter 66 of the Medford Township Administrative Code, dogs must be kept on a leash. The only exception is the identified off-leash area in Freedom Park known as Duke’s Dog Run.
Also, dog owners are required under this same Ordinance to remove their pet’s waste by placing it in a suitable bag and depositing it in a trash receptacle. For your convenience, pet waste bag dispensers are located in our parks. Pet waste is not only offensive, but it can pollute waters, as it is washed by rain and melting snow and ice into storm drains that carry it into our lakes and streams.
We thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
