Detroit Dog Park
We are a group of Detroit-area dog lovers who are working hard to bring a dog park to the city of Detroit.
Who is Detroit Dog Park?

Carly Mys, Chairwoman of the Board: Carly helps manage a residential high rise in downtown Detroit. She lives with two retrievers that ask her for a dog park every day.
Tony Dillof, Board of Directors, Legal Advisor: Tony is a professor at Wayne State University Law School. He and his trusty lab-mix, Jojo, are out every weekday picking up litter on the Dequindre Cut and on Belle Isle Sunday mornings.
