A community group, MiDOG (Michigan Dog Owners Group), worked for many years to bring a dog park to Eastpointe. The group raised money to build a fence and other ammenities for this proposed new park. On January 6, 2015, I was happy to vote in favor of the creation of this park via ordinance. The Eastsider covered the ribbon cutting of this new park!
Ever since it's creation, it has been used by many dog lovers. Many dogs are able to enjoy this land leash-free. A Little Library has been added to the land, as well as many volunteer-created items in the dog park.
