Ross Park District to Unveil New Maple Grove Leash-Free Dog Park on June 26

A new play area for dogs will be opening in Ross County later this month.

The Ross County Park District will unveil the Maple Grove Leash-Free Dog Play Area, located on the far west side of the Chillicothe area, on Saturday, June 26th, as part of its event titled: Woofstock 21.

The new Maple Grove Leash-Free Dog Play Area is located at the Maple Grove Nature Preserve, at the corner of Anderson Station Road and Sulphur Lick Road, with parking available along Anderson Station.

The land for the park was donated to the Ross County Park District by John and Doris Corcoran.

The Woofstock 21 event will serve as the grand opening and launch for the new dog play area and will offer a wide variety of activities, food trucks and more.

The Maple Grove Leash-Free Dog Play Area was made possible due to the Park District Levy passed by voters two years ago.

The Woofstock event begins at 10:00 a.m. on June 26th, with a rain date of Sunday, June 27th.
