Visiting a dog park is a great way to let your dog let loose and play with other dogs. Detroit is home to several great off-leash dog parks where your dog can run free and make new friends.
The Midtown Dog Park is located at the corner of Cass Avenue and West Canfield Street. It has a separate small dog area and water for your pup, and is open dawn to dusk. Metered parking is available on Cass and Canfield Streets, and on evenings and weekends the Wayne State University parking lot just north on Cass is available to park in for free.
For all dog parks it is important that your dog be vaccinated and appropriately-licensed, and be sure to keep your dog on-leash when you aren’t in the gated area. And if you are using metered parking in the City of Detroit, the Park Detroit app is a super convenient way to keep the meter maid at bay!
