The Renaissance Continues: Free-Run Dog Park Could Be Unleashed On Corktown
December 4th, 2012, 8:32 AM
Dog owners are planning the first free-run, off-leash dog park in Detroit in an overgrown park west of the abandoned train station in Corktown.
Tammy Stables Battaglia of the Free Press reports the Detroit Dog Park organization "-- led by a board of seven "pooch pals" who live or work in the city -- is in the middle of a monthlong fund-raising campaign to repurpose Macomb Park, 3/4-acre parcel sits between 17th and 18th streets south of Michigan Avenue.
Macomb Park is across from Roosevelt Park, the large expanse of grass in front of the Michigan Central Station.
As of Saturday, Detroit Dog Park had raised $4,943 on the fund-raising site www.Kickstarter.com .
