Where Lancaster dogs come to play
About Overlook Dog Park
Overlook Community Park, located off Fruitville Pike in Manheim Township, has developed several acres into a Dog Park that includes separate fenced-in areas for large dogs (30 + lbs.), small dogs, and a common area for activities. This is a great place where your dog can run off the leash and play in a large fenced-in area during daylight hours.
The Manheim Township Dog Owners Group (MTDOG) was formed to make this the best park possible. Our mission is to provide a safe, friendly area where dogs can exercise and play, and dog owners can meet, to improve our sense of community.
To keep the community of dogs and people as healthy as possible, the dogs must be current on DA2PP, Bordetella (kennel cough), and Rabies vaccines. They also must have a current dog license (any state is allowed). We strongly recommend that they be given a monthly intestinal deworming medication. Most monthly heartworm preventatives also prevent and treat intestinal parasites, and therefore fulfill this recommendation. This reduces the potential for contamination of the park.
You may download a registration form or pick one up at Stauffer Mansion, 1241 Lititz Pike, Lancaster. All memberships are renewed annually in January.
For the safety of our members and their dogs, there will be NO ADMISSION into the dog park without your FOB (electronic key). Anyone forgetting their FOB will need to retrieve the FOB before entering the park. Members may not allow others into the dog park, although you may want to be courteous by holding the door open for someone else approaching.
The General Board determined that members allowing entrance to persons without FOBS place other owners and animals at risk for injury.
