Rochester, NY, the 3rd-largest metro area in the Empire State, is also one of the finest. The reasons why are extensive, including the quality of schools, the low crime rate, and (mostly) agreeable weather. More than that, Rochester offers a rare blend of natural and man-made resources that genuinely make living and working here enjoyable. That enjoyment also extends to your canine family members, as Rochester offers seven excellent, off-leash dog parks for them to enjoy and meet new furry friends.
A swimming pond is provided for pups to splash and play
Area is fully fenced in but not separated, so big and small dogs are together
The yearly fee ($24.00) is also good for Ellison Dog Park, Greece Canal Dog Park, Sweden Dog Park, and Henrietta Dog Park.
While there are only seven off-leash dog parks in Rochester, all of them are very well-kept and provide many amenities. Monroe County, where Rochester is located, charges an annual $25.00 fee per dog to use any of their dog parks. If you want to go for a single day or the entire year, you need to register your dog(s), prove they’ve been vaccinated, and pay the fees. If you don’t, you could face some stiff fines. All things considered, if you live in Rochester and take your dogs to the park regularly; we think you’ll agree that the fees are quite fair.
