About Us

Mascoma Valley Dog Park Supporters (MVDPS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to building and maintaining public off-leash recreation areas for dogs and their people, also known as dog parks, within the Mascoma Valley region of New Hampshire. Although our focus is specifically in the towns of Enfield and Lebanon, our group is comprised of residents from many area towns, making it a truly multi-community collaboration.

The Shaker Field Dog Park was constructed during the summer of 2015 and opened to the public on August 11, 2015. The park is open dawn to dusk daily.
