Just in case you haven’t heard, Columbia Association (CA) is opening a dog park! The Columbia Dog Park is set to open this summer in the Village of Harper’s Choice. Now sociable dogs and their owners can get together and play.
Where will the Columbia Dog Park be located?
Columbia Dog Park will be at Cedar Lane and Rivendell Road. The site is on the north side of Columbia SportsPark (located in the Harper’s Choice Village Center) and adjacent to Cedar Lane Park.
From the Harper’s Choice Village Center: Travel north on Harpers Farm Road toward Route 108. Turn right on to Rivendell, and then turn right into the parking area.
From Route 108: Travel south on Cedar Lane to the intersection of Rivendell, and proceed straight into the parking area.
You may also walk your dog to the park via Columbia’s pathways. A pathway map is found at bit.ly/CAPathwayMap.
What is planned?
There will be an area for large dogs with approximately 2 acres, and an area for the little guys with a separate gate of about 3/4 of an acre. A 5-foot fence will enclose the play areas. Additional amenities will include water stations, benches and trees.
Dog Park Rules and Admission
Columbia Dog Park will be managed and maintained by CA’s Open Space Management Division. Details about memberships and admission will be available soon. Park policies will be similar to those at the Worthington Dog Park operated by Howard County Recreation and Parks, and can be viewed at bit.ly/hocodogpark. Please stay tuned for more information regarding specific policies and rules for Columbia Dog Park.
