Madison Heights is a suburban city, located only 10 miles from the Detroit's downtown area. Once part of the Royal Oaks Township, Madison Heights incorporated in 1955, and was the largest suburb in the county at the time, ranking as the fifth most populated suburb too. The city today is one of the highest ranking in dog-friendliness, and provides residents with a dog park, trails, and 3 animal hospitals.
The dog park is known as the Red Oaks Dog Park, a scenic fenced-in area along the Red Run Creek. The area has a vibrant grassy terrain that takes up 5.3 acres of land, with separate areas for large and small dogs, and double-gated entrances. Humans get to relax under shaded picnic areas and enjoy other amenities, like dog-sized water fountains, waste stations, a hose for cleaning off Fido, benches, and trash bins.
Afterwards, you can walk in the Red Oaks Nature Center nearby. The nature center is a 38-acre natural area with dense woods and a scattered trail system. There are seasonal displays, programs, and picnic areas along the trail, along with other amenities like water fountains, benches, and trash bins. Dogs can enjoy the park too while they remain on a leash!

Be sure to leash up Fido before going out on a walk with them!
