Pets are welcome at Martin Van Buren NHS, but must be kept on a leash no longer than six feet at all time. The park grounds are open for recreation, such as dog walking, from dawn to dusk year round.

Pets of any kind, except for service animals, are not permitted inside any historic structure or other building.

Remember: Do not leave your pet in a closed vehicle in the parking lot. If you must leave your pet unattended, park under shade and leave at least two windows open half way.
Owners must properly dispose of pet waste and control pet behavior.
