Ferndale, Michigan is a city that stems from the automotive industry rather than the railroad. In days past, this area was a boomtown that saw rapid expansion thanks to the thriving automotive industry. Today, Ferndale has a few bustling commercial areas and quiet residential quarters, as well as several places where you can come and play with your pup and your kids. It is a bedroom community for Detroit, which means big-city amenities are just a short drive away. You'll find three vet clinics in town to keep your pup tip-top.
Martin Road Park is one of the largest parks in the area. It has a sledding hill, a decent sized playground, and a walking trail. Restrooms and water fountains are available. Dogs aren't allowed inside the restrooms, but you can fill up their water dish here. You will need a leash to play, but your dog will enjoy a long walk in this quiet park.
If you want a cozy place to eat, then you should check out M-Brew. They offer several types of craft beer. The locals recommend the Piggy-Q pizza. This cozy spot is housed in an authentic and historic cabin where your dog is just as welcome as you are.
Fido will go mutts for everything Ferndale has to offer!
