Garfield Township-area residents will have another place to let their dogs romp later this fall. The township is developing a dog park on East Silver Lake Road (south of the restrooms at the Silver Lake Recreation Area) and approved $24,000 in fencing earlier this week.
To be located near existing parks and a fire station, the park will include 50,000 square feet for larger dogs and 18,750 square feet for smaller dogs. It will include an open area and a partly wooded area, as well as bags and cans for owners to clean up after their pets.
