Dog Park


The dog park is located at the north end of Gainsboro Park, and has entrances at the west end of Kensington by the train tracks and near the north end of Indiana.

There is an annual membership fee to access the dog park. Any Pleasant Ridge resident may purchase a membership. Current non-resident members may renew their membership, but we are not selling new memberships to non-residents.

Memberships may be purchased at City Hall during regular business hours. You must bring proof of your dog’s rabies vaccination when you purchase a membership. The membership pass will only be valid for the duration of your dog’s rabies vaccination.

The annual access fee is $40 for Pleasant Ridge residents and $70 for returning non-residents.
