Leash Law
Ordinance #87-7 forbids dogs and cats in the drainage area surrounding Nottingham Lake and in the waterways leading to the lake. All dogs must be on a leash, and this law is strictly enforced by Town officials. For safety reasons, we also ask that no dogs be brought to special events that occur within Nottingham Park.
