Nice park need more dogs!

The park is conveniently located five minutes from downtown and really has a great look. It has only one fountain but plenty of shade in the afternoon and a covered picnic table, an obstacle course and plenty of fire hydrants donated to the park. It cost us $30/season for two dogs + one time $10 fee for a key fob. You must obtain a fob to enter and exit the park. All shots etc need to be up to date or they revoke access There's plenty of parking. There hasn't been more than five dogs at any one time but it is still fairly new. We've been there over ten times.

Hi, guys! The park is now open. Two separate areas for large and small dogs , and a third 2+ acre enclosed "woods" space with walking trail. Main park space has a functioning welled water pump in the warmer months. Huge space for your pup to run to around like a crazy-person. Port-a-potty in the parking lot (for your quadraped, poop bags are complimentary). Parking lot is dirt at this point in time, and can get very muddy after a rain or thaw. There is a day fee, but I recommend forking over 20 bucks for the annual pass. The drive to the park is very pretty and that 20 bucks will also get you access to ALL Kalamazoo county parks. Pretty sweet. -Brad

dog park

I was born and raised on the east side of Kalamazoo and just moved back from Florida from being there a year. There were three different doggie parks with two beach doggie parks to choose from in the area. We would visit one every day, and the other on days of schedualed mowing and maintenance. I have a two year old Boston Terrier that is overly social with a wonderful temperment that I believe is due to this type of activity. I am eagerly waiting for this park to open, and would like to know more on the rules and regulations along with any needed materials, so as to help out in anyway that I can to speed up the completion process. Thank you, Tammie Domaska
