When the lake is frozen solid there is more room to play. I'm nervous when it is in mid-freeze. The potential exists for a pup to fall through. Know your Ice!
Fun in the snow
Sunrise - Kaukauna Dog Park


The City of Kaukauna won an award from the State of Wisconsin Recreation Association for this dog park. The 13-acre dog park contains three areas which are all grass-covered. There is a fenced in small dog area, a very large fenced in area for all dogs, and a fenced in pond where dogs can swim. There is also a walking trail around the perimeter of the pond which includes two bridges built by local Boy Scouts. The park is well-lit after dark & there are soda machines available for thirsty dog owners. The Kaukauna Dog Park is open daily from dawn until 11pm and is free to the public.

    yucky pond

    Very nice play areas with good shade trees and pavilion. Only 4 because the pond was quite yucky and I would not let my dog swim in it.

    Best Park Around

    The Kaukauna Dog Park, in my opinion, is the best dog park within at least a 50 mile radius. It has several features that make this a 5: open year round, the swimming pond, well lit, open at night, VERY well kept up and very clean. Being open year-round is a MUST for a dog park in Wisconsin - dogs do not stop needing exercise, and people do not stop needing socialization, in the winter (this also goes for after dark, not everyone works 8:00-5:00!). That is where some of the other dog parks around here totally lack. Thank you to the City of Kaukauna for this wonderful park!

    Very Dirty Water

    I agree with some other reviewers, the pond is just too nasty. My dog had to check the water out, and came out covered in darn brown sludge! The walk around the pond is nice, but there are areas with really high plants and it was easy to quickly lose sight of your pup in them. The other area is a basic, large, grassy play yard, but its kept very clean, as is the area around the pond. I think I'll stick to our Green Bay dog has a nice, clean creek at the park (in the leash on area), and I think thats a better bet for us.

    Dirty Pond

    Went to the park because its one of the few that had a fenced in swimming area. Unfortunately it is way too dirty and nasty to allow the puppies to swim. If the pond can be cleaned up and restructured to allow easier access to clean water, it would be a great park. At this point the one down the road in Little Chute is much better

    Nice Park

    Kaukauna has a nice park. One section is an open area with an attatched small dog area. The next section has a pond and bridges to cross over. I would rate you a 5, but that Pond, its gets nasty fast. My dogs smelled like rotton fish and had this goo all over them. Its a great idea, but since the pond is so still, is there any way of getting some airation in there?

    It is worth the Drive

    I currently live in Madison WI but was living in Green while this dog park was being built. It was a great pleasure watching it come together within the community. Now I drive 2 hours just so my Smokey can come to swim. It's the only place I know of where the water area is enclosed and she can swim off-leash.. Her enjoyment is so worth the drive. We look forward to seeing what other changes will happen. Thank you everyone that worked so hard to make it such a wonderful place to bring our 4-legged family members so they can have fun.
