Message from the Southbury Animal Control

Southbury Animal Control would like to give a friendly update for all of our two and four legged friends! Due to safety precautions, Southbury Dog Park is closed until further notice. This is a great opportunity to do some walking with your dog! Although most of the town operated parks prohibit dogs, there are some other wonderful parks in Southbury that allow dogs on leashes! Please go to to see which parks allow dogs. To help minimize community spread of COVID-19, please follow Connecticut DEEP guidelines when visiting any park. Stay safe and have fun!!
