In order to keep the Dog Park safe from non-vaccinated and unlicensed dogs, and those not compliant with the rules, the Dog Park is locked and restricted to Rockville residents only whose dog(s) are licensed with the City of Rockville.

Dog licensing is handled by the Neighborhood Services/Animal Control Division of the Rockville City Police Department. All dogs older than four months are required to be licensed.

Residents can complete a Pet Registration Application and submit with payment, either in person or by mail, to the Rockville City Police Department, Neighborhood Services/Animal Control Division, 2 West Montgomery Avenue, Rockville, Maryland 20850.

New licensed dog owners will be given the Dog Park access code after receipt of the Pet Registration Application, payment, and verification of residency.
