Hey my name is Carmine! I’m currently looking for a full time engineering job and I figured it would be great to do Wag in the meantime . My dog Millie is almost 8 years old and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She’s some a Jack Russel/Italian Greyhound Mix and while she’s one of the greatest things I’ve got going right now she doesn’t love to walk all that much. So I’d like to brighten up my days by meeting some new dogs and getting some light exercise.

Dog Walking in Garden City

Garden City is a thriving suburban and metro city for the larger town of Detroit, which is only 15 miles east. In the 1830s, the area was bought by a man named John Lathers, who helped popularize the garden city concept, which was already famous in England. The garden city concept meant most homes got an acre of land, but today, homes have much smaller plots. That's why so many people need to walk their pup, and thankfully the area has some great parks!

Resting on the southern border of the city, Garden City Park is the most visited green space. The park offers features like baseball and softball fields, a pavilion, picnic tables, grilling facilities, restrooms, a playground, a volleyball pit, and decent parking. There are more dog-oriented features too, like a paved 1.3-mile walking trail that encompasses the city, open space, and lots of trees and shade. Although your pup needs to remain on a leash, they can still enjoy water fountains, benches, trash bins, and clean-up stations.

Kiwanis Park is another great, dog-friendly park to bring your pup to. The cozy area is covered in trees with a shaded open area and forested trails to walk on. Features include grills, a basketball court, a playground, picnic tables, and a handball court. Leash up Fido before coming here and enjoy plenty of open space to play, drink water and the water fountains, sit on benches, and use the trash bins.

Garden City is a busy and sprawling community outside of Detroit, with 2 veterinarians, and offers even quieter parks for you and Fido to enjoy, like Helen Park and Florence Park.
