Bicentennial Dog Park to Open Monday, December 4
Livonia’s first dog park will open at 7 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 4. The Bicentennial Dog Park will be open daily from dawn to dusk, but not before 7 a.m. or after 9 p.m. A formal ribbon cutting ceremony will take place in the spring of 2018.
“This will be a nice addition to our great parks system,” said Mayor Dennis Wright.
The dog park features waste stations, a doggie drinking fountain, benches, agility stations, areas designated for small and large dogs, as well as an unused, open area to allow for rotating space utilization
“The growing need for a dog park became apparent through our surveys and conversations with residents. We are excited to offer dog owners the ability to take their pets to the park and allow them to run off-leash in a safe environment,” commented Ted Davis, Superintendent, Livonia Parks and Recreation.
Livonia residents with licensed dogs will be able to access the park for a $30 annual fee for the first dog and $10 for each additional dog. There is a maximum of three dogs per household.
