Kaukauna Dog Park

The City of Kaukauna won an award from the State of Wisconsin Recreation Association for their 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 2 bridges built by local Boy Scouts. The park is well-lit after dark & there are soda machines available for thirsty dog owners. When visiting the park, you will meet many friendly people including those who live nearby and others who drive up to 30 miles to visit. Many other dog parks are closed during the winter so it's very nice to have such a wonderful park that is open all year. The dogs have just as much fun playing together in the fresh-fallen snow as they do in the summer!
