The Evans Dog Park is a fenced in public area adjacent to Evans Town Hall on Erie Road where dogs can legally run off-leash and play with other dogs under the supervision of their companions. The park is accessed through a double-gated entrance where you unleash your dog after the first gate is closed and before you open the second gate to enter. There dog park is a 150' x 100' fenced area of dedicated green space consisting of two sections, one for small dogs and one for large dogs.
OUR MISSION To maintain an off-leash area in Evans where citizens can safely interact with their dogs, allowing dogs and citizens to share the park in an environment that is safe, clean, and enjoyable to all, to also encourage responsible canine citizenship by providing opportunity for exercise and socialization for dogs and their companions.

First Time Users of the Park
• It is helpful to visit the park on your first visit without your dog to familiarize yourself with the park. • Your dog's first few visits work out best when the park is not busy. • If using the large area, unleash your dog inside the fenced-in entrance area after the first gate is closed and before you open the second gate to enter the Dog Park.
• Be considerate of other park users. Don't let your dog bother others enjoying the park. • Use caution when dispensing treats to your dog around other animals. • Keep your dog in sight at all times. Be aware of what he or she is doing. Anticipate potential problems. It is easier to stop a problem from happening than deal with it after it's occurred. • Remove your dog from the park if he or she becomes aggressive. • Please keep the gates closed at all times.
