CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich.—Should Cascade Township create a public dog park?
That’s the question the township is asking community members to answer in a survey now available online.
The township’s newly approved parks and recreation plan includes discussion of dog policies and a possible dog park in the area. Now through Aug. 13, residents are encouraged to take the online survey found here to help the township prioritize its plans for dogs.
Cascade Township is home to a private dog park, Shaggy Pines, but the township currently requires dogs to remain on a leash at all times while in public parks. Officials are considering potentially adding a separate, fenced in space for small and large dogs to roam free in either Burton or Cascade Peace Park. The park would likely be similar to the dog park at the Ottawa County fairgrounds.
