Cadillac Dog Park Opens – and is Vandalized


After two years of planning and meetings, the Cadillac Dog Park is now open to dogs and their owners. The first phase of construction was completed thanks to donations from the community and the park is now enclosed by a fence. There are also waste bags and a parking area. The Park is separated into two sections for big and small dogs.

Unfortunately, right after the Park was open, it was vandalized. Vandals stole dog waste bag dispensers and signs, littered trash and broke into a nearby building. If you have any information on this crime, call the police at 231-775-3491.

Dog Park organizer Bill Allen has led the effort to have a Dog Park in Cadillac and keeps up with supporters through emails and the Park’s Facebook page here.

The Cadillac Dog Park is at the site of the former wellhead and ballpark site in the industrial park off W. 13th Street near the corner of 6th Avenue (between Rec. Boat Holdings and CCI, adjacent to the Wexford County Animal Shelter).

Rules are posted for owners and their dogs (although so far no dogs have been spotted reading them). Puppies, aggressive and non-vaccinated dogs should not be brought to the Park and everyone is asked to clean up after their dog poop.

Future plans include hooking up water in the Spring, adding benches and planting trees for shade.

If you’d like to make a donation to the Park, call Mark Coy with the City of Cadillac at 231-775-0181.
