[ARCHIVED] Northern Tail Dog Park to be Closed for the 2021-2022 Winter Season

Dog Park

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Community members are reminded that the City of East Lansing’s Northern Tail Dog Park, located at 6400 Abbot Road, will be closed over the 2021-2022 winter season. The park is scheduled to close on November 29, 2021 and is scheduled to re-open on April 4, 2022, weather permitting.

The purpose for the seasonal closure of the Northern Tail Dog Park is to prevent considerable wear and tear to park grounds, which has occurred over past winter seasons due to park use during freeze-thaw periods and periods when the soil is wet and muddy.

The City has completed extensive work to improve drainage and restore grass at the park. The winter closure of the Northern Tail Dog Park, like the winter closures of many other recreational facilities in the East Lansing community, reduces the wear and tear of the park grounds. Other park facilities that close over the winter months include the East Lansing Soccer Complex, the East Lansing Softball Complex, the East Lansing Family Aquatic Center and all bathrooms in City parks.

Signs will be installed at the park to notify park users of the upcoming seasonal closure.
