Pups and people are invited to stop by the Ocean Pines Dog Park for “Yappy Hour” on the first Friday of every month from 6-8 p.m. beginning May 6.
Dog treats and water will be provided, and registered dogs will receive a dog park bandana at their first visit. Pet owners are welcome to bring their own food and beverages.
The cost to participate is a one-time fee of $10, a portion of which will be donated to the Worcester County Humane Society. Additional sessions will be held on June 3, July 1, Aug. 5 and Sept. 2.
A yearly Ocean Pines Dog Park registration, separate from Yappy Hour registration, is required of all participating dogs prior to the event. Dog park registration may be completed through the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department.
The Ocean Pines Dog Park is fenced and shaded with separate areas for large and small dogs. It is located at the Manklin Meadows complex in Ocean Pines.
