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.

Attention Dog Park Members!

Dress up your little ones and bring the family dog too! In addition to our yummy treats for the little ghosts, goblins, super heroes, and princesses, we will have special dog friendly treats for all super hero weenie dogs, roaring tiger dogs or jailbird dogs too! Pre-registration is REQUIRED for this particular time. All dogs must be a current member of our Dog Park to register. Pet owners are required to clean up after their animals.

Note: Only Dog Park members are able to register for the Doggie Trick or Treat Time. Registration must be submitted via fax or at our offices, to confirm Dog Park membership. Online registration for Doggie Trick or Treat Time will not be available. All children and animals must both be registered.

Dog Park Renewal Rules Review

How do I join the Northville Dog Park system?

Step 1

Two dogs on a snow pile.Attend a mandatory education session.
These sessions are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month 6:45pm at the Northville Community Center, 303 West Main Street.  There will be no December education session.  The sessions last about 30-40 minutes and are conducted by volunteer members of the Dog Park.  No need to RSVP or bring anything to the session; just be interested in joining the dog park.  You will not be providing payment for the dog park pass at the session. 

The education session will review the park rules and operating hours, responsibilities of the users, behaviors you will observe in your dog while at the dog park, and the process for obtaining the pass.  At the conclusion of the session, you will be given the actual application to purchase a pass.  Only one member of the household is required to attend the session.

Step 2

Two dogs in dog park.Obtain a current dog license and vaccinations. 
Licenses are accepted from whatever community you reside in. Vaccinations that are required for a dog park pass purchase are rabies, bordatella and DHLLP (distemper).  You will need to bring proof of these items with you when you register for a dog park pass.

Step 3

Purchase your pass at the Northville Parks and Recreation Department office. 
The Parks and Recreation Department is located in the rear of Hillside Middle School (Eight Mile Road and Center Streets).  Office hours are 8:00am 4:30pm Monday through Friday.  You will need to bring the Dog Park application you received at the education session, proof of dog license and vaccinations.  Payment may be made by check, cash or credit card (MC/Visa, Discover, American Express).  You will be issued a key fob that will allow you and your dog access to the park.  You may use the park immediately upon receiving the fob.

Step 4

Have a great experience using the Northville Dog Park system!
