I've lived in this area a long time; A dog park would be wonderful! I've said for years it's surprising we don't have one. The closest is 30+ minutes away. I love seeing our community working together to get our fur babies a park!! :-)

We need to make this Dog Park a reality. We not only have the support of our wonderful Fort Gratiot community, but the surrounding communities as well, including Port Huron Township and Port Huron City Recreation. This parcel of land "McIntyre Park", which was donated to the Twp. is surrounded by nature, bike paths and is adjacent to our two ponds. We need to make McIntyre Park a Pet Safe Park. Please vote every day.

A dog park would have the support of the business community as well as the residents, civic leaders and surrounding communities. We are an animal loving community... Fort Gratiot has the perfect land to make a wonderful dog park. Wing Thiele, President, Fort Gratiot Business Association

Even though I don't have a dog, I have many friends who do & this would be a safe place for their pups to play. Please help make it become a reality!

We have Lake Huron. No parks allow our dogs to go for a swim. Our older dogs would benifit by being able to swim to get excersize with out the pain of their joins.
