About Freedom Barks Dog Park

Prior to visiting, please click here to read Medford Township’s General Guidelines and Rules on the use of Freedom Barks Dog Park (including the fenced-in dog runs). 


***Following the rules is imperative so that

Freedom Barks Dog Park can continue to be an off-leash area

and to ensure the safety of all our park pups.***

Per Chapter 66 of Medford’s Administrative Code (Dogs), dogs may be banned for repeated aggressive behaviors, and summons may be issued for more serious &/or repeated violations, with penalties as prescribed under

NJ State Statutes. All incidents should be reported to the Medford Police at 609- 267-8300 or via their confidential tip line at 609-714-0302.

Freedom Barks Dog Park is located in Medford, New Jersey. The park was originally set up under the Green Acres program. Medford Township officials saw a great opportunity and created Freedom Barks Dog Park within the boundaries of Freedom Park. 


Freedom Barks Dog Park is unlike any other dog park in the state; visitors come from all over the tri-state area to enjoy what Freedom Barks has to offer! Rover lists Freedom Barks as the #1 dog park in NJ. Not to mention, in 2015, Freedom Barks was recognized by USA Today as one of the top 10 dog parks across the country! 


Freedom Barks has 26 acres of open fields which offer unlimited fun and cedar creeks for swimming. Most visitors ask if the park is fenced in and the short answer to that question is 'no'. The tree line acts as a natural barrier around the fields, and the trails lead through the woods and along the creek. 

However, we are excited to announce that on July 27th, 2020 Medford Township opened two new fenced-in dog runs within Freedom Barks Dog Park. One side has 4-foot fencing and is designated for dogs under 25 lbs. The other side has 6-foot fencing and is open to dogs of all sizes. Each run is 30 yards wide by 100 yards long and has its own agility equipment, benches, and dog waste containers.
