New dog park opens on former rubblefill site in Abingdon

The Aegis

Dogs of all sizes, and their owners, are welcome at Abingdon Road Park, Harford County’s new dog park, located at 3330 Abingdon Road in Abingdon.

This four-acre park features two separate fenced in areas, one for small dogs and another for large dogs, along with a picnic pavilion and a one-mile perimeter trail leading to the park.

Built on top of the former Spencer construction rubblefill, Abingdon Road Park offers beautiful views and open space perfect for kite flying, the county government said in a news release.

Community input guided development of the park’s amenities consistent with the plan for closure and capping of the rubblefill, which was approved in 2014 by the Maryland Department of the Environment. The park is ADA accessible.

Abingdon Road Park shares an entrance with Harford County’s Abingdon Water Treatment Plant.

After the turnoff, follow the driveway to the intersection then “follow the paws” along the pathway leading to the park.
