Dog Park


  • Members who regularly utilize Canton’s off-leash dog park are invited to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in Meeting Room E of the Canton Administration Building, located at 1150 S. Canton Center Road. A number of topics related to the dog park will be discussed, including: maintenance schedules, future construction projects, and proposed rule changes for 2020. For additional information, please contact the Canton Parks office at 734/394-5310.
  • Starting November 8, 2019: Dog Park water will be shut off and winterized for the season. After this date, please remember to bring water and a bowl for your dog when visiting the dog park.  As always, no glass bowls or glass containers of any kind are permitted in the dog park.  For additional information, contact the Canton Parks office at 734/394-5310.
  • A portion of the Large Dog area will temporarily remain closed to ensure proper growing conditions for the newly installed sod. Parks staff will continue to monitor the progress of the sod growth and will re-open this area once proper root system development has occurred. Again, we thank you for your patience as we’ve undertaken this important maintenance project in accordance with members’ requests to help improve the Canton Dog Park and ensure a positive dog park experience for everyone.

Dog Park Reminders

The mission of the Canton Dog Park is to provide a safe, fenced-in environment where dog owners can let their dogs run and play off-leash. Dog Park members are required to abide by the rules posted at the entrance gate in order to maintain the safety and well-being of all dog park users. Please note the following reminders:

  • Dog owners must clean up after their dog(s) and dispose of waste properly.
  • Dog owners must be in control of their dog(s) at all time and are asked to monitor and correct their dog's aggressive behavior. If your dog is displaying aggressive behavior, please remove them from the area immediately.
  • Dog Park members must use their own key fob to enter the park. Members should not swipe in other individuals nor open the gate to provide access to other members. Please remember that only registered Dog Park members are allowed inside the park.

Thank you to everyone for being the "eyes and ears" of the Dog Park and for reporting any issues or concerns to the Canton Park Office at 394-5310.
