Brookdale dog park closed

Brookdale Park is closed until further notice. We have started working on the Brookdale Park roadway and parking lot reconstruction. We are finding it very difficult and dangerous for both patrons and workers to keep the area open, so we are keeping it closed until we can make it safe. Please use our new dog park at the Environmental Area (across from the dam) at 10201 West River Road. Thank you for you patience during our construction.
