RARITAN TWP., NJ - Renovations at the off-leash dog area at the Route 12 county complex are complete and the park is again open.   

The area now has two enclosures. One is for large dogs, with a separate side for small dogs. The project also includes new fencing and benches.

“For many of our residents, being able to spend quality time with their dogs and  allowing them time to exercise and play is important.,” said Hunterdon Freeholder Director John E. Lanza. He praised the county’s Division of Maintenance and Facilities for getting the park back online quickly.
