The Chickering Playfields are located off of Dedham Street in Dover, just behind the Chickering Elementary School. They are located right across the street from Caryl Park. We ask everyone to respect the fields by picking up trash and keeping dogs off of the fields.
Aside from several Sport Camps during the Spring, Summer, & Fall, the Playing fields are primarily used for:
- Girls & Boys Lacrosse
“Carry-In, Carry-Out” Trash Policy
The Parks & Recreation Commission has a new policy now in effect at Caryl Park and Chickering Playfields – a Carry-In Carry-Out trash policy. The new 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 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 will be 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.
