Winter 2016/2017 schedule for lighting takes effect on Sunday, November 6, 2016 with daylight savings. Lights will be on 5:00pm – 9:00pm.
The Wurzburg Dog Park is located in Martinsburg at Ambrose Park (behind the Foxcroft Towne Center in Martinsburg off Mall Ave, Wall St. & Porter Ave). It was the generosity of Miss Gretchen Wurzburg, local resident and business woman, that made this facility possible. When she passed away in 2008 she named her nephew, Travis A. Hill, Jr. and his wife, Scarlett James Hill to be the advisers of the Wurzburg/Hill Family Fund with the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation. Because of Miss Wurzburg’s love of dogs, Travis and Scarlett recommended spending a portion of the Wurzburg/Hill Family Fund to build a dog park in Berkeley County.
This facility is the first of its kind in Berkeley County and is a beautiful and popular spot for many of our local and neighboring residents and their canine friends! We now have over 200 members a year that bring their dogs out to the park since it opened in November 2014. There are two fenced-in sections, one for large dogs over 30 lbs. and one is for small dogs up to 30 lbs. We have installed additional lighting for night time users and there is a numeric pad system for our members to enter the dog areas. We are working to acquire funding for additional equipment and improvements to benefit both the dogs and their owners.
You can stop into our Administrative Offices at either the Berkeley 2000 Recreation Center or the W. Randy Smith Center to register. Please read the following below for registration information:

Note: There is a $10 per key FOB replacement fee. There is a $5 per key FOB reactivation fee (please note that this reactivation may take a few days to take effect so your entry into the park won’t be immediate.

Please read your dog park rules and guidelines prior to entering the park.
