It's time Muskegon goes to the dogs. The dog park that is, with the help of many contributors Muskegon is getting its first public dog park. You will be able to bring your four-legged family member to the downtown Muskegon PetSafe Bark Park at the end of summer or beginning of fall.

This amazing off leash dog park will be located on the corner of West Western Avenue and Shoreline Drive. The Michigan Economic Development Corp is leading the funding groups along with PetSafe, the Muskegon Kennel Club, Community Foundation for Muskegon County and Downtown Muskegon Now. All of the help of these businesses along with dog enthusiasts throughout the community have helped raise money totaling $110,000 through the crowdfunding campaign last year.
I caught up with Dave Alexander and Sara Sass right out in front of the entrance where construction is just underway to talk more about the park. Take a listen.
Whether you have a small dog or a large dog each will have their own area at the Bark Park. There will be a large fence around the whole area and a fence in between for small and large dogs to be separated. You will find a watering hole for the pets and their humans along with picnic tables and other fun activities for the whole family. I can't wait to see you and all of your four-legged furry family members at the dog park!
