“Carry-In, Carry-Out” Trash Policy

The Parks & Recreation Commission’s Carry-In Carry-Out trash policy is in effect at both Caryl Park and the Chickering Playfields. This policy was suggested by the Dover Recycling Committee after several seasons of over-flowing trash bins. Several other towns have similar policies in place and we have seen positive results. The goal of the new policy is to eliminate litter and improve disposal of trash, and also help teach players and parents to be responsible for their waste. Signage is posted at both parks, in multiple locations.

No Dogs Allowed

For health and safety reasons, dogs are not allowed (on leash or off leash) at Chickering Playfields or Caryl Park.
