Join a Committee

The Committee for Barnstable Dog Parks welcomes your participation in our monthly meetings and on our committees as well as volunteer opportunities at our events. To whet your interest, here are updates from various teams. Please feel free to contact the Committe Chairs listed if you’re interested in getting involved.

Fun with Fundraising:

Fundraising is fun! We have numerous opportunities to meet other friendly dog people and enjoy recreational activities like the Bass River Cruise – all benefitting our park – and we encourage you to join this sub-committee or just volunteer to help at events. We’ll need all hands on deck for our June car wash which was a lot of fun last year in spite of the weather. Another area we need to develop is a major gifts program. Fundraising Chair: New Chair coming soon).

Planning Committee Delves into the Details:

Although a dog park is, yes, basically a fenced area, “the devil is in the details”. The Planning Committee has been doing a yeoman’s job researching Town regulations, calculating costs, developing technical drawings and incorporating all in a formal proposal to present to the Town. Next steps for this Committee will be to create a budget and timeline and eventually a project plan for the construction and opening of the park. If you have a bent for this kind of work please reach out to us and lend us a hand! Planning Chair: Barb Chester (
