This beautiful, 12 acre, quiet, pet-friendly dog park features a fenced area for dogs off-leash, a watering hole, and a separate small dog area. For their humans; benches, picnic tables and a small pavilion are provided. A “stoop and scoop” protocol is in effect. Effective March 2019, no registration, key fob, or membership fees are required to enjoy Fairmount Dog Park.
In 2004, a collaborative group called “Friends of Kalamazoo Dog Parks” was founded to plan and build a dog-friendly, off-leash area for dogs and their owners. This goal was achieved through a collaboration of Fairmount Neighborhood, The City of Kalamazoo, MRC Industries, The Kalamazoo Humane Society, and volunteers.
*During the Winter Months the parking lot is closed. Users are welcome to park on the street and access the park via the sidewalk.
All dogs must have a valid Kalamazoo County dog license. Please read the Fairmount Dog Park Packet to make sure you are aware of all rules and etiquette for the park.
