Dog Park

Dog Park!

Centennial Dog Park is now open! It was established in 2016 as a partnership between the City of Newton, Rotary Club, Caring Hands Humane Society, and Newton Dog Park Project. 

Ongoing fundraising for the park will go toward the purchase of shelters, benches and other amenities. Tax-deductible donations may be made to Caring Hands Humane Society, with memo line: “Newton Dog Park Project,” or online at

As part of the fundraising efforts, the Rotary Club will install personalized brick pavers at the entry gates. Bricks can be purchased to honor your family, business or canine companions. Download an order form here.
