Unique to Macomb's Park system, Patton park offers a exclusive area just for your canine companion(s). Allow your pup to run free through half an acre of a less restrictive setting. Two separate play areas are available for use year round. The smaller dog area was created for dogs requiring segregation due to: size, disposition, health concerns, or other reasons. The dog park can be accessed from the South Ward Street entrance of Patton Park.
