Dog Parks

Northville is one of several Michigan communities that have brought the dog park experience to their residents.  The Northville system currently includes two dog parks, Cady Street (.7 acres) and Community Park (4 acres).  Both parks are popular and have a number of regular users.

The success of the Northville Dog Parks is due in part to the unique, mandatory education session that is required for all potential system users. Many dog parks require only vaccinations to participate, while the Northville system requires dog license, vaccinations and attendance at an education session.  We believe that our requirements result in a better educated participant who understands their responsibility as a dog park user.  We now allow non-Northville residents to purchase passes for the Community Park Dog Park only.
