Mario Lanza Dog Park is a public space and users are not required to be members; however, we strongly encourage all users to become members as the park and its volunteer board relies almost solely on member donations for maintenance and improvements. With your support we can keep the park looking beautiful. If you enjoy bringing your dog to the dog run, please take a moment to send in a donation to keep the dog run looking its best!
