About the MKE Dog Park Project

The MKE Dog park is a dynamic 12,000-square-foot space that will transform the west bank of the Milwaukee River on N. Plankinton Avenue and W. Clybourn Street into Downtown Milwaukee’s first public dog park and revitalize this important neighborhood gateway. Learn more about the project at www.MKEDogPark.com and in the latest version of the MKE BluePrint here. Don’t forget to follow us at @MKEDogPark.
