dog park

The dogs of Lafayette Park and their human friends are working together to build a fenced-in dog park on the north end of Lafayette Plaisance Park.


We’ve met with the city to come up with a plan that complies with historic district requirements and are now in the process of raising $30,000 to pay for: fencing, benches and other amenities.

Once built, the dog park will be owned and operated by the city of Detroit.

All contributions are welcome.
