Thanks to a matching grant from IHCDA and Patronicity we are able to accept donations through our campaign page.

    Would like to know exactly where this will be as my husband and I are looking for a dog park for both of my boys. Are Pitt bulls allowed to be brought there? I have a Staffordshire terrior that is 2 and a Pit mix with Lab that is around 6. I am wanting to know if I could bring them there for their exercise.

      Hi Beth! The address is 382 Prospect Street, just south of the Eli Lilly building. We do not have breed restrictions at this time, but our policies do state that if a dog has any history of aggression, that they are not allowed to use the park. We will collect shot records as part of the registration process as well. We hope that you’ll pledge support to help us build the park!

    Hi! My boyfriend and I have two large dogs and two small dogs who both currently frequent another dog park. This would be closer to us – so very exciting! Since our dogs all like to play together, do all small dogs have to stay in the small dog area or can they be with the large dogs since that’s what they are used to doing? Also, if we are both there are we able to bring all 4 dogs? Thanks!

    • Laura Giffel

      Hi Jordann! The small dog area is just available for those who choose to use it, so your smaller dogs are welcome in the whole park!

      As for the fourth dog, the membership covers 3 dogs per household so can you send us an email and we can brainstorm?
