Dog Park (7.1.19)
In the spring of 2019, a local fundraising effort kicked off to bring a dog park to Milford. Through the Michigan Economic Development Authority's Public Spaces Community Places program, the Village was able to secure a $20,000 matching grant to add to the $26,728 donated by over 130 local residents and businesses through an online campaign via Patronicity. Following the successful fundraising, the project design was completed in late summer of 2019 and work has begun to build the Milford Dog Park. 


Current Project Status - November 1, 2019
Dog Park (as of October 25, 2019)
Activity on the site of the future Milford dog park has been picking up in recent weeks, and a lot has been going on behind the scenes as well. The park location was surveyed and the fence line was staked out ahead of fence installation. Recently, the concrete entrance area was poured and fencing is slated for installation in mid-November. 

Additionally, a water line was installed for a new drinking fountain/bottle filling station (including a dog-friendly fountain) to be located along the Milford Trail. This addition was made possible by a donation from LaFontaine Subaru.

Once the fencing is installed, we anticipate that a “soft opening” of the park will follow – and a formal “Grand Opening” event in the spring, once the weather starts warming back up.
