EAST LANSING, Mich. — Community members and their dogs are advised that the City of East Lansing’s Northern Tail Dog Park, 6400 Abbot Road will close for the winter season on Thursday, Nov. 30. The park will re-open again in the spring.
The Northern Tail Dog Park closes for the winter each season to protect park grounds from wear and tear. In the past, significant damage has occurred in the dog park due to usage during freeze-thaw periods and periods when the soil was wet and muddy. Extensive work has been done by the City to improve drainage and restore grass. The dog park was constructed in 2007 and offers two and a half acres of fenced and double-gated natural area for off-leash dog play including a 5,625-square-foot area for small dogs (under 22 pounds).
Signs have been installed at the Northern Tail Dog Park to notify users of the seasonal closure. Other City facilities that close over the winter months include:
