We are excited for you to utilize our new Dog Park here in Kankakee County. Our gated and spacious dog park is separated for large dogs and small dogs. Our dog park requires an annual membership to access the park and memberships can be purchased at the Willowhaven Nature Center or Perry Farm House during normal business hours.
Want to know more information about what our Dog Park entails?
There is a 5 foot black chain link fence that encloses an open space, with natural grass and newly planted shade trees. Enclosure includes, separate fenced areas for dogs under 26 lbs. and dogs over 26lbs. Our Dog Park includes a double gate for safely getting dogs in and out of the park. Access into the park is controlled with a membership access card. Water stations are now available in both the large and small dog run areas so that your pup can stay hydrated (please note that water is shut off November through March). Waste stations and complimentary waste bags are available in both dog runs.
