Service Animals

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals that have been individually trained to perform specific task(s) for the benefit of an individual with a disability are allowed to go anywhere you are allowed to go in the park. The tasks performed by the animal must be directly related to the person’s disability.

Therapy, companion, or comfort animals are not service animals under the Americans with Disabilities Act and may not access visitor centers, trails or other non-motorized areas. Owners of service dogs must comply with pet waste and restraint regulations, unless restraint specifically interferes with the task the dog is trained to perform.

A service animal must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless (1) these devices interfere with the service animal’s work, or (2) the individual’s disability prevents them from using these devices. In those cases, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective means.
