There's no place better than Sylvan Lake. The small town resides on the shores of a lake with the same name, and surrounded by smaller lakes all around the area. The town is one of the tiniest towns in the state, taking up less than a square of a mile. Although tiny, this community sure has a big heart when it comes to dogs, including dog-friendly parks and trails in the already cramped spaces of the city.

Sylvan Community Park is a dog-friendly park located on a small island right on the coast. The park is 15 acres with tennis courts, open fields, benches, and small paved path. There's plenty of parking for humans, and dogs must remain on a leash, with additional features including clean-up stations, water fountains, and trash bins. The park is open from 10 AM to 9 PM.

The Clinton River Trail is a rail-trail path that was converted from the old railroad that used to be in the area. The trail stretches 16 miles, and starts in the neighboring town of Keego Harbor, and extends east past Sylvan Lake. The town only takes up .4 miles of the trail, which is dog-friendly to leashed pups.

Although the nearest animal hospital is in neighboring Keego Harbor, Sylvan Lake is still a wonderful place to raise and walk your dog.
