Prairie View Dog Park opened in the spring of 2010 and features 7 acres of fenced park area for dogs to exercise and socialize off-leash. The park has a grass area with plenty of shade trees and a wooded section with a walking trail. Plus there is a special area for dogs under 25 lbs. Access to the dog park requires either payment of the daily vehicle entrance fee or an annual park pass.
Dogs are welcome at all the Kalamazoo County Parks. Pets must be on a leash with the exception of the Prairie View Dog Park. They are not allowed at the swimming beaches and owners must clean up after their pets.
