Parks for the Pup

No matter where you are visiting in Livingston County, there are pet parks only a few miles away. The Countryside Veterinary Dog Park and EZ Dog Park are both located in Howell and made specifically to let your canine run and play. Visit Whitmore Lake’s Bark Park to let your fur babies exercise leash-free (behavior permitting) within in a safe, fenced in area. There is also a children’s playground next to the bark park for kids to burn energy at as well!

The Brighton Rec Area, Genoa Township Park, Kensington Metropark, and Island Lake Rec Area are parks that also allow pets but requires them to be on a leash. Check out the Genoa Township Park, there is a ground level fountain available for pets to quench their thirst, and cool off.
