Park Rules & Regulations

Park Use Application

Domesticated animals

Dogs MUST be kept on a leash at all times. Unleashed dogs inhibit birds and other animals from building nests and homes; as animals begin to know the area as being "unsafe territory" to raise young. When this happens we all lose, as many people visit the park to observe and photograph wildlife in a natural state. Pemberton Park is an incredibly historical and natural experience for the entire family-including our furry friends. But, please be responsible and respect the natural surroundings by obeying the on-leash restrictions.

Equestrian use shall be on Woodland and Pondside trails only, unless granted a special permit.

Use of vehicles in the park

Use of bicycles on trails is not allowed. Use of all-terrain vehicles is not allowed.


No person shall catch, injure, destroy, or interfere in any way with any wildlife, to include hunting and trapping. Fishing on a catch and release basis is allowed. Removal of plants, seeds, artifacts, wildlife and wildlife remains is strictly prohibited and illegal by law.
