Meridian Township provides a park or natural area within 15-20 minute walk of every  Township resident. That is approximately 2000 steps (on your pedometer) closer to
a healthier lifestyle. With over 900 acres of land on 29 park properties with 20 miles of trails and 76 miles of pedestrian/bicycle pathways, we have numerous opportunities for you and your family to enjoy getting to your destination of choice along the Trails of Meridian. Check out our parks!

The Meridian Large Dog Park is located in Central Park South.

Meridian Township Parks and Recreation is constructing two dog parks that will be open in 2019. The off-leash small dog (30 lbs. and under) play area in Nancy Moore Park will open in 2019. The future large dog park (30 lbs. and over) in Central Park South is expected to be open in summer or fall 2019. An accessible pathway will be constructed between the Town Hall and Central Park south. Once the pathway is completed, it will provide the necessary access to the large dog park. Meanwhile we will install the large dog park fencing and begin to develop a natural trail that will weave through the three-acre vegetated area.

Meridian Township Residents: $20 for first dog, additional $15 for second dog.
Non-residents: $35 for first dog, $20 for second dog.

Registration Coming Soon...
Dog Park registration is required for access to the designated off-leash areas. The registration requirement enables the Township to provide safe environments in off-leash dog play areas for users and their pets. The fees will be used to maintain the high standards of Meridian Township’s two dog parks.

The registration process requires owners to provide health and safety documentation, specifically current rabies vaccination certificate and dog license, and a waiver and release form to comply with established rules for use of dog play areas. Dog owners must have their dog licensed with the city, county, or other municipal jurisdiction to apply for an off-leash dog permit.

If you would prefer a paper copy of the dog park registration form, please visit the Meridian Township's Parks and Recreation office at 2100 Gaylord C. Smith Court, Haslett, MI 48840.
