Canton, Michigan Home Owners Getting New Dog Park

More than 40 million U.S. households  – or about 40 percent of the population – own at least one dog.

If you’re one of those people whose life has been graced with a canine companion – and you live in the Detroit, Michigan area – I have great news for you!

The town of Canton recently announced the opening of the Canton Dog Park. This 5-acre, off-leash dog park has two separate areas.  One area is for those dogs that are more than 20 pounds and the other is for those less than 20 pounds.

The park also features benches for dog owners as well as a double-gated entrance to discourage canine escape artists.

Hours of operation will be from dawn to dusk.

“We are excited to have this new dog park open in Canton,” said Debi Greene, member of the Friends of the Canton Dog Park, in a press release. “Our group has worked tirelessly to raise the necessary funds to construct this new park which will allow dog lovers to exercise their pets in a great open space.”
