Detroit Dog Park and The Brooklyn Street Local invite you, yes, YOU! to an evening of food, drink and music, as we celebrate the coming of summer, the coming-together of the city’s first official dog park, and the awesome people that have helped us make this park a reality.

The Brooklyn Street Local is a Corktown cafe that specializes in local, in-season, organic and creative cuisine. Your $20 ticket includes an array of treats inspired by the restaurant’s offerings, a complimentary drink, then cash bar, music by artist and DJ Jarrad Henderson, a gorgeous patio, and that favorite of all Detroit activities – soaking in the summer weather.

By now, you should have received your reward for donating to our campaign. Again, we thank you so much for your support! We are excited for spring and to begin construction and we’ll keep you updated on when that will be.

However, there are still a few people who haven’t responded to our attempts to deliver their rewards. You should have received a questionnaire from Kickstarter when our campaign ended in December. It should have asked for your address and how you want your name to appear on our website.

If you could please look this weekend, and let us know at by APRIL 1 (no foolin’) whether or not you got that questionnaire, we will happily resend and get going on the process of sending you that reward.

Holler if you have any questions! We appreciate your help and support!

Kickstarter Rewards Are On Their Way!

Great news! The bulk of our Kickstarter rewards went out during the week, so sometime in the next few days, you’ll be getting your reward in the mail.

Everyone who opted to receive a reward got a survey via the email address they supplied Kickstarter when they pledged. Based on those survey responses, we sent you your reward. However, there are still a handful of people that didn’t respond, for whatever reason. We need your help to fill out that survey by APRIL 1. Check your junk mail or your archives if you don’t remember getting a survey. If you still can’t find it, email us at and we will resend.

With the rewards going out, this is pretty much the “end” of our Kickstarter campaign. But, we will continue to post updates on that site, as well as here and on Facebook. We hope to have more news for you on the park itself by the end of the month, so stay tuned and thank you for supporting Detroit Dog Park.
