Bring your favorite canines and let them run freely in an environment that is safe and rewarding for all. If you are not traveling with a dog, stop by and watch the fun.
The park, only one of eight in the state of Iowa, is a collaboration between the Perry Humane Society and the Perry Parks and Recreation Department. Land and monies for the facility were provided by private donors.
The five-plus acre park is fenced and divided into two sections, an area for smaller dogs and one for large dogs. Double gates enable you to move in and out of the park without risk of your canine friend’s escape. The park features several permanent benches, a three-level water fountain (one for dogs, one for children and one for adults) and three pieces of dog-inspired playground equipment.
Each adult is limited to three dogs. No food, whether human or animal, is allowed in the park.
The Park is located at the southwest corner of Pattee Park, south of the ball diamonds, at the end of West 5th Street.
Daily passes are available at the McCreary Community Building which is open seven days a week. No children under 14 years will be allowed in the fenced in dog area, and no one under 18 will be permitted to escort a dog into the park. The McCreary Community Building is located at 1800 Pattee Street and can be contacted at (515) 465-5621.
