Dog Park

History

The City of Superior Dog park is located near the Millennium Trail head at 28th Street and Wyoming Avenue.  The park opened in November of 2017.  The Superior Jaycees initially approached the City of Superior a few years back with the idea of a dog park and when a location could not be agreed upon, the concept was dropped for a period of time.  With the pressing community need and desire for a dog park, a Superior Douglas County Leadership group picked the project back up again.   After hosting a couple of “Yappy” hours for community input and exploring a variety of places around town, the City Council supported a Resolution in April of 2016, approving the location of the Dog Park at the Millennium Trail Head in the Municipal Forest off of 28th Street.

This volunteer group began clearing the site last October, then followed up with an Enbridge volunteer day, that helped to finalize the removal of dead trees and brush in May of 2017.    City Council voted to rearrange Capital Improvement dollars to fund the fence in October of 2017.

The City of Superior, along with the Leadership group are very happy to announce that the long wait is finally over and the Dog Park is open to the public and their canine companions.
