Granville Dog Exercise Area

Granville Park has been described as ‘Disneyland for dogs.’ This 10-acre park is ideal for larger, adventurous dogs, who can explore hilly grassland, open fields, native plant areas, and woody trails and have access to a river. This dog park is not fully fenced-in and is best suited to owners with good voice control over their dogs.
Roverwest Dog Park
3243 N. Weil St., Milwaukee
Roverwest, in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood, is a fully fenced-in dog park. Ample and free street parking is available along the perimeter of the park.
Warnimont Park Dog Park

This 5-acre park, behind the Kelly Senior Center in Warnimont Park, is fully fenced in and offers wooded trails and a separate small-dog area.
Perimeters are fully fenced at the dog parks at Bay View, Currie, Estabrook, and Warnimont. The Granville Dog Park is partially fenced on three sides and uses the Menomonee River as the fourth border.
Some of the dog parks have a double-gating system offering a small-fenced area for small dogs to interact and a larger space for large, socialized dogs to interact.

Milwaukee County Parks offer over 100 miles of trails to explore with your dogs. The Oak Leaf Trail, which forms a 125-mile loop through Milwaukee County, is a paved trail with some street sections.
Over a dozen parks also feature soft trails, known as Forked Aster Trails. Dogs are welcome on these trails, but please stay on-leash.
The only Milwaukee County Park trails where dogs (also runners and cyclists) are prohibited are the sensitive nature trails at Wehr Nature Center.
