Beau’s Dream Dog Park
Local resident Angela and her dog Beau won the 2012 Beneful Dream Dog Park contest that brought a $500,000 dog park makeover to Lancaster’s Buchanan Dog Park. This is 1 of 3 parks in the country built by Beneful’s Dream Team of DIY network star Jason Cameron, pet expert Arden Moore and Interior Design Star Nate Berkus. The new park was unveiled on August 6, 2013 as Beau’s Dream Dog Park. It features a small and large dog area, both with splash pads.
The park, located inside Buchanan Park, 901 Buchanan Ave., is free to enter and is open year-round from dawn until dusk. See below for dog park rules and regulations.
