The Carpenter Community
The Carpenter community of Ann Arbor, Michigan is an affordable established community with large yards and lots of trees. A mix of single family homes, condos and townhouses, are interspersed with large green spaces. Carpenter’s tree-lined streets are perfect for long walks. The ten-acre Swift Run Dog Park is also situated in this community. Open year-round, this park has an off-leash area designated for registered pets to romp and play. Southeast area park is also located within the boundaries of this neighborhood and – while it does not offer and off-leash option – it is an excellent location for a long walk with your four-legged friend. In fact, it is perfect for the entire family with softball, basketball, soccer, restrooms, tables and benches among the amenities here.
The Northside Neighborhood

Northside is within a short walk of the Huron River as well as many bike paths, parks, and hiking trails. This all makes for an excellent home for families with dogs. Built around the 54 acre Olson Park, this area is home to wetlands and woods, ponds and creeks and miles of paved trails. An off-leash dog run is available for registered pets to run out energy and make new friends. Even the kids can play with soccer fields and basketball courts on site.
