This dog park is situated on the east end of Centennial Park, a beautifully kept area for locals in Munster, Indiana. The park itself is large and family oriented boasting restaurants, soccer fields, walking paths, fishing, golfing, a playground, and more. It even happens to be LEED Silver, which means the park is very eco-friendly. The dog park section of Centennial Park is about three acres and exclusive for those who prefer a bit of privacy.
The reason being is that the park is available only to dog park members. Membership rates are based on how many dogs will be registered and whether you are already a member of Centennial Park. There is a two dog minimum so do not plan on taking a whole canine gang here. A nice perk to keep in mind is that since you must sign up for a membership, each dog must have proof of immunization and license before being issued a pass.
This added layer is suitable for those who are wary of visiting public dog parks. In addition to that, the membership dues are well-worth the cost. Upon arrival, fenced-in security personnel will greet you, so keep your pass visible at all times. Once in the Centennial Dog Park, there are water fountains, play areas, poop bags and so much more. It is like a puppy paradise!
Feel free to sit down on one of the available benches and take in the hilltop view of the park and golf course - not too shabby for humans either! Being a member of the dog park gives exclusive access to special annual events like the Doggie Paddle at Munster Pool and the Poochapalooza Dog Fair. In general, Centennial Park is an all-around fun time for people and pups of all ages. Do check it out if you live nearby or are ever in the area.
