The East Lansing Northern Tail Dog Park is located just north of the softball complex. It is a 2 ½-acre area designated for off-leash dog play. Within the park, there is a 5,625-square-foot area for small dogs (under 22 pounds).

The dog park was constructed in 2007 and is delineated by a 6-foot-tall chain link fence. The park contains signage, landscaping and dog waste stations. Admission to the park is free.

The park will be closed for the season effective Nov. 30, 2023. Weather permitting, it will reopen on April 1, 2024.
