The people have spoken, as a result of the communal feedback gathered through Plainwell’s Parks + Recreation Planning effort, a significant number of responses from the community desired a dog park. There are many dog owner residents in the community and Plainwell embraces numerous dog friendly shops. Having dogs in our community and in our families adds joy, exercise, and bonding. They become members of our families and important additions to our community. To include a dog park in Plainwell makes a lot of sense. It shows that we value these friends in our lives and want to grow our space with them in mind. It was clear to the Parks and Trees Commission that one of their main objectives will be to bring this feature to life.
The Plainwell Dog Park Committee, the Parks and Tree’s Commission, in partnership with the City of Plainwell invites you to participate in this wonderful effort by donating today. Our community has has been asking for a dog park for over a year. It’s time to make it happen
The City of Plainwell will designate approximately 12,000 square feet of space in Cook Park, which has 5 acres of land with walking paths, a pavilion, restrooms, a 100 ft lighted sledding hill and it is also slightly secluded, which makes this the perfect selection for the dog park.The design for the dog park includes:
- Separate areas for small dogs / large dogs encompassed by a vinyl coated chain link fence with separate gates
- Double gate at the entrance to avoid any accidental releases
- Park benches (6) placed throughout the park, transforming the space into a community gathering place.
- Convenient watering and waste stations
- Concrete and brick entrance into the park
- Agility equipment (8) pieces 4 in each area
