a Middlefield Boy Scout with an ambitious Eagle Scout project and the Town of Middlefield, joined forces to raise the funds (and supply the volunteer labor necessary) to construct our beautiful, new dog park right here in Middlefield!
The park is located on the beautiful 75 acre open space parcel known as The King Property, nestled on Beseck Mountain. It offers an opportunity for dogs to safely run leash-free, and owners to socialize with other dog lovers. The park consists of approximately one acre of woodland, enclosed with a continuous 5' tall chain link fence. There are separate fenced areas for both large and small (or timid) dogs.

In Memory of "Rocky"
To Kitty and Wayne Lukonis for their generous cash donation to the Dog Park, along with a matching gift from the John G. Martin Foundation. This will help with costs to repair the fence caused by damage from our recent storms.
To Kelley Gargano for her generous cash donation in memory of "Rocky", a dear companion of David and Stephanie Decker, who was loved and lost (see Rocky's photo).
To Debby and David Papallo & Leslie Papallo Glazewski for their generous donation towards the shallow well and hand pump!
Mary Cannon for her generous cash donation & for rescuing Rosie!
Pete Parker for keeping the parking lot open all winter.
John Bradley for shoveling out the transition area so the gates could be opened.
Rob Poturnicki for rescuing Pete Sibley when he got his chain saw pinched in the fallen tree Pete Sibley for making the temporary repair to the fence & removing the tree that fell on it.
We have received a generous cash donation to install a shallow well hand pump for drinking water for the dogs. Conservation Commission, Selectmen & Sanitarian approvals have been granted. Pete Parker will be "dowsing" the park to find the best location & we should have water at the park this spring!

We are still looking for cash donations to be able to provide durable pavers for the high traffic transition area, and additional stone to finish off the parking lot. The park is 100% maintained by volunteers, and all those who enjoy the park should help by adding their financial support to the park. Feel free to email us for more information.
