Mason’s newest park, Pawmyra Dog Park is an enjoyable place for dogs and owners to socialize and meet new friends. This inclusive dog park is in the lower section of Mason Sports Park on approximately 4-acres and includes concrete walkways large enough for wheelchairs to maneuver, easily accessible gates, an entrance vestibule with turf and concrete, a dog water fountain, seating, and separate play areas for large and small dogs.

Pawmyra Dog Park was named in recognition of Mason’s historical past as the Village of Palmyra. On June 1, 1803, Revolutionary War veteran William Mason paid $1,700 at auction to purchase 640 acres of land in what is now downtown Mason. In 1815, he platted 16 lots on this land and named the village “Palmira.” When the plat was officially recorded, the name of the village was listed as “Palmyra.” In 1835, a petition was sent to the federal post office to correct the name of the town, which was listed as Kirkwood, possibly an error because the postmaster at the time was William Kirkwood. When village officials were informed that there was another Palmyra in Ohio, the name was officially changed to “Mason.”
