The Park District’s newest dog park opened in September of 2014 as part of the Stuart Sports Complex expansion and features 15 spacious acres for fun-loving dogs to run and roam (see map link below). Separate areas are offered for large and small dogs, and a 30-vehicle parking lot provides convenience for all.
