How do I join the Farmington Hills Dog Park?

The orientation session can be found online, a DVD copy is available to check out at the Costick Center, or it can be viewed in the computer lab in the Costick Center’s Conway Hall. The orientation session will review the park rules, the responsibilities of the user, behaviors you may observe in your dog while at the dog park, and the process for obtaining a fob and tag. For more information call the Costick Center at (248) 473-1800.
