Not only is the site centrally located but it is easily accessible and alternate playing fields are close by in Kinsmen Park.
While initial work began last year, the park is now nearing completion. The School Board still owns the site but through a joint agreement for maintenance and tenure, this project has been made possible.

A secure fenced area that is safe for dogs and owners of all ages will be a welcome addition to Cranbrook amenities. The park features shaded areas, in ground irrigation, a water supply, great parking and will be equipped with the essential doggie waste bags and disposal containers.
Janna Jacobson of JR and J Fencing, who owns dogs herself was busy watching over the installation of gates on Wednesday March 16th. Thanks to the expertise of people like Janna and the fencing expertise of JR and J Fencing, Cranbrook will soon boast one of the biggest fenced dog parks around.
While all dogs will be welcome in the large area of the park, small dogs and their owners can feel safe in the small area designed just for them. A separate entrance will mean no intimidating encounters at the door. This space will provide a great place for socialization of both dogs and owners, knowing their pets are safe off leash. All existing fencing will be dropped to ground level for security and extra fencing has been added to provide separate but connecting areas.
To see this project finally come to fruition is great news.
