Does your dog need friends? Ann Arbor has the perfect meeting place for your favorite pet: Switch Run Park & Olson Park. Here, dogs can roam about, bark as loud as they want, and play with fellow canines. It’s a great place for them to stretch out and exhaust all that energy they’ve been storing over the winter. They’ll be excited to play fetch with their favorite toy and romp with the other dogs. You’ll also get to meet other dog owners and talk your pet. Ann Arbor wants you and your best friend to have a great time while living in the area.
Both dog parks are open from dawn to dusk. You need an off-leash dog permit to access the designated off-leash dog play areas (which can be at Ann Arbor’s city clerk’s office).
