Located at Chippewassee Park, the dog park is approximately 4 acres in size.
History of the Park
Midland’s first and only dog park was created in 2005 at the west end of Chippewassee Park near the Trilogy Skate Park. The area was made possible by a generous gift of $40,000 from an anonymous donor and plans designed by a group of interested citizens and Parks and Recreation Department staff. The park is one element of the city's Parks and Recreation Master Plan, which was last adopted in March 2010.
The dog park is fenced-in, and has a combination of wooded and open areas where dogs can run free. A water source (during the warm weather months) and various agility courses are provided to make your pet’s romps more enjoyable. A separate area in the dog park is earmarked for smaller dogs and a gravel parking area has been added near the park for dog owners’ vehicles. Waste bags are provided for use at the park. Trails are compacted in the snow to allow easier walking for dog owners in the winter.
Please note that dog owners must be in control of their pets, and must clean up waste from their dogs.
