Dog Park Committee
The Park and Rec Commission wants to form a  Dog Park Committee to explore the possibility of putting up a dog park in Sherman. All residents are welcome to join and input their ideas about why we need one, where it should be, how it is to be paid for, and what steps do we need to take to make it happen. If you are interested, call the Park and Rec office and leave your name, phone number and email address.

    Dogs at Town Park 

There have been many concerns about dogs running free at the Town Park and Veteran's Field. Please remember that all dogs must be on a leash and under the control of the owner at all times and any mess that the dog makes is the owner's responsibility to pick up. Allowing your dog to run free on any town property is unacceptable and could constitute a danger to others who are trying to use our facilities. Please keep this in mind and enjoy your walk with your dog.

Boat Moorings

September is registration month for boat moorings. Come to the office any Saturday morning in September between 9:30 and 11:30 and don't forget your mask. If a lottery is necessary for big or small boats, it will be held on Saturday, October 3 at 10:00.
