The Dog Park is located within Wasserman Park, which is located at 116 Naticook Road, Merrimack, NH 03054. The Park is open to both Residents & Non-Residents and is free of charge to use. When you pull into the Park you will travel down a short hill and take the first right. This will lead you directly to the Visitors Parking Lot and to the Dog Park which is on the backside of the visitors parking lot. The Dog Park is 3/4 of an acre in size and is divided into two sections (one for large dogs and one for small dogs). The large dog area measures 91 x 208 and the small dog area is 50 x 208.
