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 Northern Tail Dog Park will be closed over the 2019-2020 winter season. The park is scheduled to be closed from December 2, 2019 to April 13, 2020, weather permitting. Learn more about the park closure here
