three dogs playing in dog parkDiscover a fun way to get together with your neighbors and their dogs this summer! In an effort to create more active and social outdoor spaces, we will rotate pop-up dog parks to various neighborhood parks every three weeks throughout the summer months. Temporary fencing will delineate the dog parks. Dogs are still required to be on a leash when they are outside of the designated fenced areas. Rules will be posted to help everyone respectfully utilize the space.

The first park visited by the Pop-Up Pup Park is Pelbrook Park! The temporary dog park will open June 3, weather dependent. The Pop-Up Pup Park is also tentatively scheduled to visit Green, Willowbrook and Wagon Trail Park before the summer ends!
