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.
